“We can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
In this week’s devotions we talk about suffering with and for Christ. Why do we suffer? How do we endure? Where is the ‘good news’ amidst life’s pressures?
Identification with Jesus means suffering with him. Suffering is part of being ‘in Christ’, part of being a part of God’s Church.
Romans 8:16-17: “The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs–heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.”
