Son of God and Son of man
There before the world began
Born to suffer, born to save
Born to raise us from the grave
Christ the everlasting Lord
He shall reign forevermore
I love these lyrics in the song Noel. Jesus came to earth from heaven born as a human baby for one reason- to suffer, die and defeat death for us.That is the hope available for all who will receive him.
This life is temporary. Any suffering we endure in this life is temporary. I do not make light of suffering. I know the pains of chronic illness all to well since I live with more than one. Each day it is not a question of if I have pain, it is a question of how much. But knowing an eternal home with Jesus in heaven awaits me, makes it easier to cope with the here and now.
Jesus is Immanuel-God with Us.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
