To This You Were Called

Why do the righteous suffer?  Why are they called upon to endure such earthly hardship?  After living a life that loves God first and loves all people equally???  Why? For what purpose and plan?  What is God doing and why does it seem so painfully unfair?

Because our light and momentary trials do, indeed have a greater purpose, a greater gory, a greater revealing of who God is to the world around us. 

But this suffering?  
The Word of God tells us…

“to this you were called”.
1 Peter 2:21
