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.”
