That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death (Philippians 3:10).
If we look on suffering as something to be avoided at all costs we will take no more of it than is forced upon us by our circumstances. In that case we will miss everything that is best in life. But if we take it as one of God’s gifts, as one of the means by which He is imprinting His image on our characters, we can more readily understand how suffering may be working out His purpose for our good, and so join with the Apostle in the prayer that we might be brought into full the fellowship of the suffering of the Captain of our Salvation, Who was Himself made perfect through suffering.
