Sufferings - And -The - Cross - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

The disciples were not
weakened by suffering,
worn down, and embittered.

Instead, theysuffered,
by the power of him
who supported them.

The disciples bore the
suffering laid on them
only by the power of him
who bore all suffering
on the cross.

As bearers of suffering,
they stand in communion
with the Crucified.

They stand as strangers
in the power of him
who was so alien
to the world that
it crucified him.

    Suffering makes us stronger, better people. There is no way around suffering. We have to experience it, live it, go through it in order to come out at the other end healed. Jesus suffered an agonising death as did all those who were crucified in that era. It is my belief that if he came to the world again today, the same thing would happen to him, but in a different way. People have not changed down through the centuries, sadly! Wonderful poem!
