This week, we see that representing King Jesus in a rebellious world requires that we must be ready to suffer the same hostility that Jesus suffered.
Please take a few minutes to read through this week text and answer the questions as we prepare our minds for worship.
"continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister. 24 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God that was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known"
1) What does Paul see as his job in this world?
2) What was the source of Paul's joy in 1:24?
3) For what or who was Paul happy to suffer?
