Patient Suffering

Hebrews 9:28 “So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.”

We sometimes struggle with the suffering that is endured here. In scripture we find testimonies of loss, illness and death. In some cases, Jesus or a prophet was directed to pray and a miracle brought change.

I Corinthians 15:50-51 “I declare to you, bothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, nor does perishable inherit imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all steep, but we will all be changed.”

Because of sin there will all ways be sickness and suffering. The change is that believers are given a new body that is imperishable. Many have prayed for relief from the suffering and God has blessed them with healing. Others have grown in their relationship with God while having in their flesh some fault. Even Paul prayed for the healing from a thorn in his flesh but resigned to the position that it was his to carry. God’s love is demonstrated in salvation.
