LOOK AT SUFFERING !!
BY JOHN PIPER
Look! The life of Jesus is flowing through your suffering into the lives of other people.
Look! The power of God and the life of his Son are manifested in your weakness.
Look! God sustains you in your afflictions and will not let you be destroyed.
Look! Your afflictions will not have the last word; you will rise from the dead with Jesus and with the church of God and live in joy for ever and ever.
Look! Your afflictions are momentary. They are only for now, not for the age to come.
Look! Your afflictions are light. Compared to the pleasures of what is coming they are as nothing.
Look! These afflictions are producing for you an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison
