Acts 5:41 The Apostles Left The Sanhedrin, Rejoicing Because They Had Been Counted Worthy Of Suffering Disgrace For The Name.
Most of the time, we feel pain because something has gone wrong in our physical body or within our emotional heart. Pain is considered an alarm bell telling us to take notice or take action. However, when we suffer with a purpose, for a purpose, the sting of the hurt may still afflict us but assigning our suffering a purpose gives us an added power we do not normally have. The apostles left the Sanhedrin rejoicing because they were disgraced for a wonderful purpose...the cause of Christ Jesus. Satan afflicts every person. Every person will suffer a last fatal attack by Satan. Yet, if we have committed our life to Christ, we will be able to take the tempter's arrows with a spirit of rejoicing not possible with Christ being in our heart and life.
