Suffering prepares us for more glory. God says a lot about suffering in Scripture so that you know where to look when the pain comes to you.

This book beautifully blends exposition and experience. It calls us to an understanding of the Cross which wastes not a moment of our suffering.

The Gospel of Mark records with as much accuracy as possible the main events of the life and teachings of Jesus. A record of this kind furnished evidence to support the belief that Jesus was the true Messiah; by believing in Jesus, people could obtain salvation.

You are in Jesus and he is in the Father. So, start opening up Christ and — voilà — there you will find yourself. As you reach inside the layers of Jesus, you see more of yourself, transformed by the very discipline of knowing him better.

“The Bible does tell us who we are and what we should do, but it does so through the lens of who God is. Books upon books have been written about the problem of suffering.

First of all, then, He is the standard of our suffering. In His suffering He sets the standard for our suffering.

That is a very, very important reality. For Jesus Christ the path to glory was the path of suffering. And that's the pattern for us. The path to. Suffering afflicts everybody. Jesus not only promised suffering; he also made bearing personal crosses a daily requirement for all of his followers (see LukeNIV).

Making the sign of the cross proclaims our yes to this condition of discipleship. When we sign ourselves we are taking up our cross and accepting whatever suffering comes our way.

Jesus is denied by Peter. He accepts others’ weaknesses. Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem. He thinks of others. Jesus promises his kingdom to the good thief. He forgives. Jesus speaks to his mother and the disciple. He watches over his family. As Jesus responds to his sorrow, he is expressing to us the best of what it means to be human.

The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that You do, except God be with him”. Yes, they knew!—but they misunderstood the message.

When we are gentle our crosses do not anger us or cause us to rebel.
