Suffering

The Bible often mentions suffering. Though this can refer to outward, physical suffering, in the New Covenant it mostly applies to the suffering that occurs when you deny your own sinful lusts and desires and put them to death. It is an inner suffering that occurs because your lusts are not being satisfied, rather than a physical, outward one – what the Bible refers to as “crucifying the flesh with its passions and desires.” (Romans 8:17; Philippians 3:10; Colossians 1:24; 1 Peter 4:1)
