Jesus said; “Here on earth you will have MANY TRIALS and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NLT

So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure MANY TRIALS for a little while. These TRIALS will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through MANY TRIALS, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world!
1. Peter 1:6-7 NLT

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and TRIALS, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love!
Romans 5:3-5 NLT

So, don’t be surprised at the fiery TRIALS you are going through, as if something strange were happening to you!
1. Peter 4:12 NLT

You see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their Trials!
2. Peter 2:9 NLT

Even though Jesus was God’s Son, He learned obedience from the things He suffered. In this way, God qualified Him as a perfect High Priest, and He became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey Him!
Hebrews 5:8-9 NLT

So then, since Christ suffered physical pain, you must arm yourselves with the same attitude He had, and be ready to suffer, too!
1. Peter 4:1 NLT

For God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in His steps!
1. Peter 2:21 NLT

Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution!
1. Timothy 3:12 NLT

Even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats.
1. Peter 3:14 NLT

So, don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord!
2. Timothy 4:5 NLT

If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs.
1. Peter 4:15 NLT

Remember, it is better to suffer for doing good, if that is what God wants, than to suffer for doing wrong!
1. Peter 3:17 NLT

So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for He will never fail you!
1. Peter 4:19 NLT

Since He Himself has gone through suffering and testing, He is able to help us when we are being tested.
Hebrews 2:18 NLT

So stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are!
1. Peter 5:8-9 NLT

First of all, marriage according to God is only meant to be between one man and one woman. Jesus Christ made this very clear when He said; “That the Scriptures record that from the beginning ‘God made them male and female.’ ” And He said, “‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’ (See Matthew 19:4-5)

The husband and the wife are equal partners in God’s gift of new life (see 1. Peter 3:7) and therefore they submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. (See Ephesians 5:21)

The role of the husband is to be the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. This means that the husband must love his wife, just as Christ loved the church, giving up His life for her. The husband ought to love his wife as he loves his own body, feeding and caring for her, just as Christ cares for the church! For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. (See Ephesians 5:23-29)

The husband should never treat his wife harshly, (see Colossians 3:19) but he must give honor to her and treat her with understanding so that his prayers will not be hindered. (See 1. Peter 3:7)

The husband gives authority over his body to his wife and should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs. (See 1. Corinthians 7:3-4)

The husband has to think about his earthly responsibilities and how to please his wife. (See 1. Corinthians 7:33)

The role of the wife is to submit to her husband as to the Lord. The wife should respect her husband and as the church submits to Christ, she should submit to her husband in everything. (See Ephesians 5:22, 24, 33)

This means that the wife puts her trust in God and accepts the authority of her husband. Then, even if he refuses to obey the Good News, her godly life will speak to him without any words. He will be won over by observing her pure and reverent life. (See 1. Peter 3:1-2, 5)

The wife gives authority over her body to her husband and should fulfill her husband’s needs. (See 1. Corinthians 7:3-4)

The wife has to think about her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband. (See 1. Corinthians 7:34)
