Sometimes we or maybe some Christians think that a Christian life is easy.But in reality a Christian life has also have some hard parts also called a hard knock life. Christians face also what regular people face. We get sick too, we pay taxes, we get traffic tickets too, etc.
A parking space does not always open for us. Let us see what our Lord Jesus said in the world we shall have tribulation.(Tribulation according to dictionary means misery, trouble, affliction, distress). But He also said be of good cheer He has overcome the world.(overcome- conquer, surmount, make incapable or powerless)
I believe our Lord is saying we can face the world with Him because we are also crucified with Him.
