Providential Sufferings…

John J. Murray has written a fine little booklet Behind A Frowning Providence which has been helpful to me and others in my ministry over the years. One observation he makes is this…

God has forged an inseparable link between sufferings and glory. That was the road that Christ took. He was made complete as our Savior ‘through sufferings’. He endured. He was without sin. How much more is suffering part of the road that leads sinners to perfection and glory! What abundant cause we have to be reconciled to our sufferings!
