“Rejoicing in Affliction”

“To know that nothing hurts the godly, is a matter of comfort; but to be assured that all things which fall out shall co-operate for their good, that their crosses shall be turned into blessings, that showers of affliction water the withering root of their grace and make it flourish more; this may fill their hearts with joy till they run over.” *

The saints at Thessalonica received the Word of God in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost as 1 Thessalonians 1:6 declares, “And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost.”
