Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Hebrews 12:2 looking only at Jesus, the originator and perfecter of the faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The sufferings or afflictions are part of this world we cannot remove them, Christ spoke of this, that in the world we will have afflictions and that many are the afflictions of the righteous. But above all this God will deliver us.
With the words that God left us through the apostle Paul, we understand that our hope is that we will have a glorious manifestation of Christ in us when this time ends.
So let us take hope and encouragement that there is a glory that awaits us in Christ Jesus. The words of Romans 8:18, Jesus Christ lived them, for this reason he endured the cross and scorned the reproach as spoken by Hebrews 12:2.
