The Kitchen Table Devotional
Philippians 3 Day 8
that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
It’s those who suffer who see. We can’t share His cross, only Jesus could hang in that place for us, but we can share His conviction. Evil rules where good men stand silent. In a world of darkness, you must be willing to stand up and stand out for what is good and right and true according to God’s word. It’s in saying “no” to the flesh, that we begin to see the Father more clearly. But we don’t stand alone, we stand in His presence, with His perspective, for His great passion and the power of His resurrection fills our lives. Those who are willing to suffer are those who are able to see the hand of God.
