• “Is it possible that you can trust your fellow men…that you can commit your dearest earthly interests to your weak, failing fellow creatures without a fear, and are afraid to commit your spiritual interests to the Saviour who laid down His life for you, and of whom it is declared that He is “able to save to the uttermost all who come unto God by Him”? – Hannah Whitall Smith

Our Suffering God by Martha Snell Nicholson

We often speak of how, because of sin,
Mankind has suffered sore;
But have you ever thought of this, my friend,
That GOD has suffered more?

    Yes, he suffers more because he loves more. We, as Christians, believe in Jesus' sacrifice, a demonstration of God's love, and participate in his love and suffering.

      Amen, Olivia. As Amy Carmichael once said: “But the souls who love Him truly In woe or in sweet bliss, These will count their truest heart's blood Not their own, but His; Savior, Thou Who thus hast loved me, Give me love like this. Savior, Thou Who thus hast loved me, Give me love like this.”
