R we ready to suffer as he did?

“For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him,” –Philippians 1:29 listen to chapterCopyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica

Are we willing to suffer for him as he suffered for us?
we are called to suffer as he did.  So here is my question for all of us..are we willing to suffer as he did or do we have or limits?

Who would we scream at and or to if this happened to us today? What first amendment rights would we claim instead of suffering in silence?

When abuse us and speak all manner of evil against us simply ..

I have had to remind myself of this scripture since July of 2012.  I know what it means to suffer  daily….yet no where near as much as my Lord.  I thank you Jesus for the experiences that have made me look to you as the author and finisher of my faith.

Thank you for the blood.

    Our Lord suffered and shed His blood for us and without that sacrifice, we would all be lost and separated from God forever. I am thankful that the Lord will not “give us more than we can handle”, but sometimes when we do suffer, He has a purpose in it for someone else. At least, I have found that to be true in my life and others lives that have suffered so much. I love the Lord so much and I know He will carry me through any suffering that has to come my way. I am so grateful and thankful for the last words Jesus said on the cross: Father, “forgive” them, for they know not what they do. And then, the very, very final words: IT IS FINISHED!
    AMEN AND I PRAISE YOU DEAR LORD!!!! 🙂
