I am mistaken to think that suffering is something to be avoided. Jesus challenges me to embrace it. That is what He did. That is how He lived.

  • Jesus, the Messiah, can show me how.
  • He is my model for how to do it.
  • This is stunning as it requires that I change my mind about what is good for me and what isn’t.

It challenges me to depend on God completely for everything. Not just a few things but for everything.

God has a goal in mind for me. It includes suffering. I must embrace it. No running allowed.

Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how.” ~Jesus (The Message Luke 9:25)
