Why is it that some Christians suffer more than others?

Like some Christians get cancer and some don't. How is that fair?

In this life we will have many tribulations that we must endure and overcome in such a manner that builds the faith and brings glory to our Lord. Job 2:10

In reality we're all slowly dying as our limited and allotted time on stage expires and just one breath away from eternity. We are to use our time wisely right now today as tomorrow is promised to no one!
Always hug, love and laugh with those who mean so much to you as if there is no tomorrow, for tonight we go to sleep and tomorrow many thousands of souls will not wake up on average.

Consider our brothers and sisters in foreign lands that are murdered just for being ambassadors of Christ to a lost dark world.. Matthew 26:39

In the Lord's freedom and grace..........warrior on

All I know is that God knows what he does. All the bad and all the good in our lives, will even out at the end. We must trust and know that God has a purpose for everything. Never lose faith.

As long as you are a real Christian believer, you must pass through fire. We must tell the Truth because Truth must set us free when we know and accept it. Jesus said in John 16:33, "In this world we must have trouble but cheer up, for I have overcome the world."

1 pet 5:10, after we have suffered for while, God will perfect, establish and settle us, and this is the hope we have, that no matter what we are passing through, God knows it all, for there is no other way to eternity, only the narrow way. Even JESUS CHRIST passed through troubles in this world and overcome and gave us his shield of victory: Psalm 18:35. He understands our situation.

We must also know and understand that the fight is not about me and you, it is about the kingdom of God which is the Light, and the kingdom of the devil which darkness. We are the carriers of the Word of God, and through us the testimony of the power and miracle in the Word of God is there for the whole world to see, and this is what the devil doesn't like to see.

When we believe the Word of God it produce Faith, and for us to live a victorious life here on earth, we must do what the Word of God says, for the power to overcome the devil and his schemes is in the Word of God.
Now we must choose between what we need and what we want, either to stand with the Word of God and suffer for a while and receive the reward of eternal life, or live in sin in this world and burn in hell fire forever. Any decision we make will take us to our destination, so we must choose wisely, so the choice is ours. 

Jesus made himself available to help us in this fight of Faith, by shedding His blood on the cross of Calvary, and producing Grace, the divine enablement to overcome. He has given us his shield of victory: Psalm 18:35, so no excuses.

So no matter what we are passing through--trouble, sickness, tribulation, wickedness in this world--it cannot be compared to the Love of God towards us.

May the God of Hope fill us with all peace and joy in believing, that we may abound in hope through the power of the Holy Ghost, Amen. Rom 15:13, God bless you all in JESUS' NAME. AMEN.
