Inquietude

I heartily agree here with C.S. Lewis on anxiety and all kinds of variants of personal sufferings. Focus being on personal. The Apostle Paul said in Colossians that he filled up in his flesh what was still lacking concerning Chris’s afflictions. As such, referring to those things we must suffer personally, not only vicariously through Christ’s Passion.

Our suffering in all its variant forms is for our good. As we suffer on behalf of our Savior(remaining true to Him), we will also participate in His glory. Christ has something that God the Father does not share, namely the experience of the capacity to suffer and to die. The Savior is our Great Advocate in all our sufferings, too.  -g.w.

24 Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church. Colossians 1:24
