Suffering, Part 1

Suffering. Pain.

Human nature balks.

Pain is something to be avoided, you know.

Or so we think… (or so I’ve thought).

But really….

Of all the gifts that heaven can bestow upon man, fellowship with Christ in His sufferings is the most weighty trust and the highest honor.*

Whoa….

Let’s stop right there back up.

An honor? Most weighty trust?

That’s what it says.

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.**

*Ministry of Healing, 478

**1 Pet 4:13
