If you have not yet suffered for the sake of the gospel, keep living. If you believe in Jesus and want to reign with Him, then you will also suffer for Him even as you do well. The good news is that God has also made and intends to keep His precious promises toward you. After you have suffered, God Himself will restore you. You will not die but declare and share in His glory. Expect to come out of fire without any sign of suffering and shine like pure gold.
