Life is Drudgery (5OB-18)

Human life is often full of suffering and pain. Jesus does not take this all away, but redeems it all.

Life is Drudgery (5OB-18)

The problem of suffering is dealt with by Job in the Old Testament, but as Christians we can look at it in an even fuller light of Christ. Jesus did not heal every person in Israel, nor does he heal every person who believes in Him. In fact, he does not promise prosperity and health to his followers, but the cross and persecution. Jesus did not take away all suffering, but entered into it. We now have an opportunity to enter into our suffering and redeem it by love by uniting it to the cross as St. Paul did and rejoice in the suffering that now has meaning in love. 02/04/18
