The world is full of suffering. We know this. If you haven't experienced some level of physical or emotional pain, you will. As Christians, one of the most powerful aspects of our witness is the ability to get alongside those who are hurting and broken and to offer them the hope that is found in Jesus Christ.

Unfortunately, there are some Christians who seek to perpetuate a false gospel that promises a pain-free life, if we would only be able to live perfectly. They refuse to recognize the weight of suffering that can beset any one of us, at any time. They alienate those who are distressed. When we turn away from the suffering, we turn away from Jesus Christ himself.

One of the most misguided elements of this thinking can be rectified when we study the very life and death of Jesus Christ himself. He took on a finite human body and entered into the realm of emotional, physical and spiritual turmoil. He was absolute divinity. And yet, he was persecuted, disowned, rejected and eventually tortured and murdered in the most brutal fashion.
