When we imagine Christ on the cross, suffering, tortured, crucified ... there's nothing appealing in the images it brings to mind.
But the message in that terrible death is the most appealing message of all time, the salvation of our souls.
It's a message that challenges any complaints we have about our personal suffering.
"Any discussion of how pain and suffering fit into God's scheme ultimately leads back to the cross.” ― Philip Yancey
Christ's agony on our behalf should put our own suffering into perspective.
