Jesus walked the road of suffering and death, followed by his glorification. As aliens in this world, we too must be prepared to walk the same road of suffering, then glory. We must live with the end in view and in light of God's salvation we are to live godly lives. Even though we may suffering unjustly now, we can live in a way that shows we have a great hope in a glorious future of eternal life. We must be prepared to endure suffering for Christ.
