Guest House Daily Reflection

It takes a confident faith to believe that suffering saves.  To accept the truth that Jesus had to suffer and die to save me makes me wonder if I am next.  My suffering can only have merit if it is united to the Lord’s.  I suffer for my sins; God suffers for me.

Lord Jesus, may I not ever deny the mystery that your suffering saved me and everyone.  In accepting this mystery of salvation, may I also say “yes” to offering my suffering to you.
