Enduring Hardship

Why do we believe that hardship signals that God has something against us, and that prosperity means God favors us? Paul told Timothy, “You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Timothy 2:3).
That passage alerts us to the fact that Jesus allows us to have hardships, and that it is a sign we are active in His army. Therefore, do not look down upon hardship, but endure for Jesus’ sake, even as you would gladly endure hardship for your nation.
