Suffer it to be so now; for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Matthew 3:15
Upon this I founded My three years’ Mission on earth — on the acceptance of the difficulty and discipline of life so as to share that human life with My followers in all the ages.
Much that you both must accept in life is not to be accepted as being necessary for you personally, but accepted, as I accepted it, to set an example, to share in the sufferings and difficulties of mankind.
In this “to share” means “to save.” And there, too, for you both … the same must be true as was so true of Me. “He saved others. Himself He cannot save.”
Beloved, you are called to save and share in a very special way. The way of sorrows if walked with Me, the Man of Sorrows, is a path kept sacred and secret for My nearest and dearest, those whose one desire is to do all for Me, to sacrifice all for Me, to count, as My servant Paul did, “all things but loss so that they might gain Me.”
But, dreary as that Path must look to those who view if only from afar, it has tender lights and restful shades that no other walk in life can give.
I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass form the law, till all be fulfilled. Matthew 5:17,18
