The cure for American Christianity’s wasting disease

A terrible, wasting disease infects American Christianity, that we spend our days doing what we want, instead of wholeheartedly pursuing God’s kingdom.

The cure is suffering.

“Since Christ suffered physical pain, you must arm yourselves with the same attitude he had, and be ready to suffer, too. For if you have suffered physically for Christ, you have finished with sin. You won’t spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God.” (1 Peter 4:1-2 NLT)
