If you are suffering, for whatever reason, you might join me in wondering
how in the world
rejoice in my suffering.
In fact, it might even make you cry to think about it. Because when suffering, crying comes
to some of us.
(Crying is coming easily and often to me right now!)
This week, let’s read Romans 5:1-5. Then, in your comments to this short Bible study, discuss the word, “rejoice.” What does it mean?
Use your concordance to find other verses or passages that include the word “rejoice” or “joy.” In doing so, narrow your findings to those verses or passages that might help explain the connection found in rejoicing and suffering. In other words, what does the Bible tell us about rejoicing (or joy) and suffering?
Please share your findings and ideas – then come back to comment on others.
Today is Friday, November 23. Let’s share and comment throughout the next week; then look for a new posting on this continuing study of Romans 5:1-5 on or about Friday, November 30.
I look forward to reading your comments, verses, passages, and ideas.
ps. When you make your comment (below), be sure to check the box or boxes to be notified when others comment on this same study. It’s all a good part of the study!
