I speak now to all who find themselves suffering. I call you to humble yourself under God’s mighty hand. In your suffering, make sure that you think about more than your suffering. Pray that God would draw you near the cross—to see the shocking suffering of the Son of God. God sent his Son into this world of suffering to put an end to all suffering and to save us from eternal suffering. The cross is the supreme sign of God’s care for us.
