Working for the gospel is accompanied by suffering.
Just as it is very difficult to give birth to and raise a child physically. So is the gospel, the work of saving a soul. However, the gospel is called a good suffering. Because the results are good.
The process of being reborn and changing into a man of God is accompanied with pain.
Since you were cast down. from heaven due to committing a grievous sin, the stain of sin cannot be taken off without pain.While going through pain, you are to clean off your sins and be changed into the image of God to go to heaven. Sometimes discord arises while you are trying to take members to the kingdom of heaven because their thoughts are different from yours. God tells us to have the mindset of  Christ and change our heart to that of Christ. From your sinful nature that makes you feel better only when your opinion is accepted, you should change to have the heart of God who sacrificed Himself to save one soul. When brothers are united, God will be so pleased that He will promise to give them blessings and eternal life.(Ps 133:1-3)
In order to receive eternal life and go to heaven, we have devoted ourselves to saving souls until today. Therefore, we must be united.
Within you, you have the Spirit of God and a sinful nature that becomes angry and causes discord when someone gets you riled up. Even if someone hurts you, try to forgive them with a serving heart.  If you consider others better than yourself, you can serve them.
God says, "If you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. (Mt 6:14)
As God says, "No one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.  You must live by the Spirit, throwing away your sinful nature and be born again with a character of harmony and unity.
God may put you with members who refine you in order to examine if you are a great vessel.
If there are only members who are nice, you will not have any opportunity to become a great vessel.
In the midst of difficulties, if you are patient and embrace each other with love, you will become the royal priesthood in heaven.
Some of you have a role like that of a nose, some like that of ears, some like that of eyebrows, some like that of hands, and some like that of feet, having Christ as the head.
God came to this earth to change you from your sinful nature into His beautiful and righteous image. You must have the mindset of Christ who sacrificed Himself, taking the very nature of a servant although He is God. If your character changes beautifully, you will become perfect angels. God promises to transform your lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body.
Thus, I hope that you all will unite well and set a good example as God's children by doing good deeds.

    The difficulties we're going through right now are meaningless hardships
    No. We are going through good hardships.
    Just as God's blessing is in the wrapper of hardship, he must accompany God on the path of hardship with joy.
