The Scarcity of Trusting in God’s Abundance
We Are God’s House
The pioneer is made perfect, how? I want to be careful how we understand suffering. One of the blessings of serving as a pastor is the amazing situations where we find God places us. From hospital rooms, times of loss, and real struggle–theological education did not prepare us with the right words or the correct prayer. In times of human suffering, we find the best word is often that which is unspoken and to be present. To share God’s presence.
Was it necessary for Jesus to suffer to be made perfect? I don’t know the answer to this. But I do know that it matters that he was human, and to be human is to suffer. Somehow I get that this is perfect.
