Message: “Collaborative Suffering"
How do we respond to the hope of the resurrection in light of our pain? Paul's verse mentions a "lack" in Christ's afflictions as if something we're missing. To the contrary, it only means that what is lacking is US – our participation in His suffering with the those in the body of Christ. As Christ suffered, we now are called to help suffer WITH others. We sacrifice, we give, we serve - it is far more than mere consumer theology.
