C. S. Lewis on Death & Resurrection


Application Thoughts

The Bible is clear that the Lord understands, empathizes, and cares for us when we hurt. He is the greatest source of comfort and solace, in our times of affliction.

But He does allow times of pain to encroach into and threaten our lives. Paul observes that suffering can deeply impact our character and keep our hope firmly rooted in Him alone. 

It may be tough to accept, but can we take that first step and yield to God, asking Him to use the painful parts of our lives to shape us and keep us dependent on Him and Him alone?
