Chosen to suffer

Acts 9:16
“I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.”

I will give him a global ministry.
I will make him famous.
I will hand him all he ever wanted.
I will use him in ways that will amaze.
I will provide for any and all of his needs.
This what God does for those who say YES to Him, right?
No.
Suffer is for those who are passionate for the name of Jesus.
Suffer is what happens to the obedient.
Suffer is for those who give everything.
Suffer is for those who risk their reputations.
Suffer is for those who carry a vision.
Being chosen is not for the light-hearted.
