Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you a crown of life.
We are all going to suffer that is evident. But we also must remember that we are not alone; God is with us all the way, no matter what the outcome of our suffering is. The thought that came to mind for me is that we must step boldly into suffering. Realizing that we can go through this battle because of Christ. He has been there and conquered! We are reminded of that today. Jesus paid it all so that we too will be victorious, so just tell satan - Bring it on! We are more than conquerors through Christ who gives us strength.
