Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. He is the perfect example of how we should live our lives by faith. His life on earth was a life that included suffering and his was not gratuitous. It had purpose, through his suffering Jesus learned obedience. We learn from Jesus example that his obedience to God needed to be perfected. Jesus of course lived in sinless perfection. However, he still needed to go through the suffering he went through in order to become ready for his great task in life. Every experience he had and every suffering he endured prepared him for the Cross. We need to look at suffering the same as Christ did, as we bear on own cross. He endured the shame of being nailed to a cross, because he knew later on he would be glad he did. Now he is seated at the right side of God's throne! LORD, teach me how to remain obedient to you even though I am suffering. To learn not to use suffering as an excuse to disobey your plan for my life. Help me to stand fast in faith through it all and to obey you.

Meditate Heb. 12:2
