Where the Pain Is
Ron: When we’re suffering, why do we distance ourselves from the suffering Savior?
Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.
Ron: You know, for some reason, we sometimes hide our pain and suffering from God but on a FamilyLife Blended podcast, speaker Michele Cushatt said God is in the pain. “The point where God met humanity at the closest place was at the cross. The place where God came and connected with His people at the very closest moment was at the foot of the cross, in other words in the place of suffering. So very literally, God was where the pain is and He still is.”
Michele reminds us that the suffering Savior is acquainted with grief—and he’s not afraid of ours. Whatever it is, bring it to Him. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
