Because he himself was tested by what he suffered, he is able to help those who are being tested. (Hebrews 2.18
A god afraid of human suffering. Dean Hough said that he looked out of the train window, watching the telephone poles pass by in the form of crosses...and could not help but contrast the two: the pagan and the Christian faith. Then he remembered the words of a familiar hymn: "There is a green hill far away, Beyond the city wall; Where the dear Lord was crucified, Who died to save us all." Our God is not afraid of human suffering. He's been there. He's not afraid of blood. He's shed some Himself. In Marc Connelly's play GREEN PASTURES the Lord says: "Even bein' God ain't a bed of roses!"
Christmas is a great season of joy and celebration. Yet, Christ comes to bring us hope as we face the challenges of this world.
Walk with me, Lord Jesus, as I face the challenges of my life. In Jesus' name, Amen.
