Either directly in the text or via footnotes in my old NIV (1987) I found Paul talking about sharing in the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings, Philippians 3:10. I’d come across it before but never did it hit me so hard: Christ suffered, therefore we are to arm ourselves with the attitude that we may suffer, 1 Peter 2:21 & 4:1. In chapter 2 an argument can be made that we were called to suffer and somewhere else it says we have not yet suffered to the point of bloodshed, Hebrews 12:4.
Long story short: suffering is in the works for the Christ follower. If we suffer for doing good, we share in a fellowship with Christ. That gives me hope.
