Jesus came to earth 2000 years ago to do many things. One of those things he came to do, was to suffer. The books of Isaiah and Hebrews both speak of this reality.
While meditating on his suffering, I was struck by the fact that the one who suffered is all-powerful. I’m confident that if I was all-powerful, one of the things I would do with that power is protect myself from suffering! But HE didn’t do that. In fact, he did the opposite. He came to suffer.
Our God is an amazing God!
