1. If Jesus asked you to bare your present illness to ease His suffering would you.
2. If you knew your present suffering could save souls would you say yes and accept your present pain.
3. If Jesus gave you the choice to heal your body or your soul would you choose your soul.
It is hard sometimes to view suffering as a gift. One that God has given to us and one that we can give to others: either as redemptive suffering or suffering to ease the pain of Christ Crucified.
