    Hi to all,

    Something to share...

    ==================================================
    Heb 2:10
    For it became him, for whom are all things,
    and by whom are all things, in bringing many
    sons unto glory, to make the captain of their
    salvation perfect through sufferings.


    The past week was well celebrated by people who doesn't really know the sufferings of Christ. Some of them even imitated the suffering of Christ which cannot be copied.

    Salvation was made perfect because it was presented to us by Christ through his sufferings. His sufferings were perfect. No man can imitate it nor come close to it. He suffered NOT for his sake. He doesn't even need to suffer but He must go through it for you and me.

    Everytime I ask myself, What have I suffered for
    Christ's sake? Do I really need to suffer in this
    life? what's make suffering glorious? Having problems does makes me part-takers of Christ's suffering? NO. I believe most of our problems were caused by US! When you suffer for his sake, just ask grace!

    Now as a Christian, if I truly understand Christ's
    sufferings, I should be faithful, right? I must be
    involved in our ministries. Because whatever suffering we experienced it is nothing to compare to our Lord's sufferings. How should I recall my short-comings?-- By the stripes that he wore! That should put us in shame.

    Are you tired? Are you sick? Are you discouraged? Are you dismayed? God brought us to his glory when his son died for us. What else do you need?

    Christ the captain of my soul.
