I Peter 2:20 ” But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. “

None of us like to suffer, let alone “suffering well” in doing the right thing. Yet we have the most perfect example in the person of Jesus Christ on just how to “suffer well”. Isaiah 53 talks at length about Christ’s suffering…how it was His Father’s Will to crush Him & cause Him to suffer…for you & me. And it goes on to say that after the suffering of His soul, Jesus saw the light of life…and with it, the gift of eternal life was given to us. Jesus suffered well for us, & thus we are invited to join in His sufferings, (Romans 8:17-18) and the fellowship of sharing in it. (Philippians 3:10)
