All suffering will come to an end

8 01 2013

And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.
Mark 8:31

Part of being human means that we will suffer in this life; some more than others, but suffering is just a part of what we all experience. And Jesus was no different when He walked on this earth. Jesus explained to His disciples that He would suffer, be rejected, and be killed. Jesus, as the Son of God, had to suffer, had to be rejected, and had to be killed. That was the righteous requirement for sin (Romans 8:4). But think about this: Jesus also suffered to show us that when we suffer, we will make it through.

Those who put their faith in Jesus Christ don’t suffer for naught. The book of James tells us that suffering and trials bring about completeness and wholeness (James 1:2-4). Suffering and rejection come in so many forms today. Sometimes it’s the loss of a loved one. (For me, it was my brother who was killed in an auto accident when I was in high school). For others, it’s the divorce of a spouse or the rejection of a son or daughter.

Whatever the situation, we’ve all suffered and have felt the sting of rejection. But the encouraging part is two-fold. First, put your trust in the fact that Jesus was rejected and suffered in horrible ways… for you. Be assured that whatever you go through today, some One has already shared those pains and knows exactly what you’re experiencing. Second, know that the suffering will stop some day. Jesus is coming back any moment and all of the suffering will cease! Live your life today knowing that the pain, agony, and suffering are almost over. There is an end, and it’s coming soon!

“He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20).
