Jesus Christ has perfect knowledge and is perfectly obedient to God the Father, but yet as the Son of man he learned obedience through suffering, setting an example for his people to follow. Suffering is a beneficial class where we can learn humility, obedience, and submission to God’s will. We can fellowship with Christ in sufferings in a way we cannot during prosperity and ease. Let us value the blessing of suffering to learn the lessons God will have for us during those hard trials in our lives.
