The Passion

To Believe And Live: Suffering

August 8, 2010Randy Christian

The last hours of Jesus’ life are often referred to as “The Passion”. The reason is that the word “passion” used to mean more than intense desire for something—it meant intense feelings of many kinds, including suffering. Suffering isn’t a word most of us want to hear, but it was key to God’s plan. Jesus’ suffering defined his life and how he affected others. We need to understand his suffering and what it means in our lives today.
