Suffering With Christ

“True, we must suffer with Christ, if we would partake of His glory; but what of that? For if such sufferings are set over against the coming glory, they sink into insignificance.” (A Commentary on the Old and New Testaments by Robert Jamieson, A. R. Fausset and David Brown)

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. (NASB)

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (KJV)

Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later.  (NLT)

 For I consider that our present sufferings cannot even be compared to the glory that will be revealed to us. (NET)

To reckon or consider (logízomai) is the result of considered deliberation.  When put in the balance scales what we suffer in this life is not worthy to be compared with the future glory to be revealed.  Though the trials of life may seem all encompassing, they are temporary and do not last forever.  However, the future glory is eternal.

Rom 8:18  (20) For I (t) reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

That this glory which we look for surpasses a thousand times the misery of our afflictions.  (Geneva Bible Translation Notes)

In the saints when they shall have received the inheritance which God bestows in Christ. The comforts of the saint in the midst of suffering are now given: (1) The hope of glory for which all creation, ruined by the Fall, is looking. (2) The present help of the Spirit. (3) The overruling providence of God.  (The People's New Testament (1891) by B. W. Johnson)

2Co 4:17-18  For our momentary, light suffering is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison because we are not looking at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen. For what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal. (NET)

1Pe 1:6-7  This brings you great joy, although you may have to suffer for a short time in various trials.  Such trials show the proven character of your faith, which is much more valuable than gold — gold that is tested by fire, even though it is passing away — and will bring praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. (NET)
