We Christians ARE blessed. We are chosen by God to be Christians. We, however, are likely to face many trials and tribulations for our belief and faith. We must hold firm to our faith knowing that man can only injure our physical being. Man CANNOT harm our souls. Only God can do that. Man has a choice: live for Christ and possibly lose our physical health, or live for ourselves, and definitely lose our souls.
The scripture already explained it. There is a reward for us in heaven when we are persecuted for righteousness sake.
