Reflection questions:

  • Reflect on harder times in your life or in the lives of others close to you – in what ways can you see that God was using the experience, although painful, for your/their good – how did it help you/them become more like Jesus?
  • How does the certain hope that we shall one day be with Jesus in glory shape our view of our present suffering?
  • How do these truths help us to encourage others who are going through difficult times?
