The Fellowship of His Sufferings — 5 Comments

  1. I have had a surprising amount of suffering in my life, at times in the past nearly unbearable, and I had to soul search was this Gods plan for me or was it due to the identifiable sins of omission by others close to me? I believe it was not Gods will or plan I should suffer in life as I did but Jesus suffered on the Cross at Cavalry for my sins and shed blood for me that I might have life everlasting so I have learned the powerful lesson and act of forgiveness. Matthew 6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you

  2. Spot on and something we need to continually remind ourselves of as we walk through our trials that test our faith.  Even though we know better, it is easy to look at the wind and start to sink when we need to keep our eyes on Jesus and totally trust in Him.
    Thank you for this.

  3. Those who boast that they never go through troubles may be using their own natural strength and reasoning to sidestep trials. “Apart from Me you can do nothing.” Everything we do apart from Him amounts to nothing, including taking shortcuts to get out of trials. We must go through trials and difficulties to bring us to the end of ourselves. The Father is trying to make us understand that the Only Way is in His Son. The answers and solutions are found only in His Son. It is true that we must work out our own salvation, but the passage goes on to say, for it is God who works in you both to will and to work for His good pleasure. It has to be All Him, for no flesh should glory in His presence, see 1 Cor. 1:29. We can be encouraged that it is He who is working in us, and also the Lord Jesus told us, “I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.” see JN. 8:29. We can rely on Christ in us to always do what pleases God through us. There is one caveat: we must daily accept this fact, we no longer live, but Christ lives in us.
