Does God only bless believers and exempt them from facing trials?
- God has put us through trials because He is treating us as His children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? (Hebrews 12:7).
- A servant is not greater than his or her master. Even so, believers who are His servants cannot be exempted or shielded from pain.
- “For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps” (1 Peter 2:21).
