Revelation Lesson 18 Day 3 Jesus’ Suffering

The Purpose of Jesus Suffering

6. Jesus’ Suffering

Isaiah 53:10-11

It was the Lord’s will to crush Him and cause Jesus suffering. NIV (That’s so difficult and painful to take in.)

His life was an offering for sin. NIV

Life will come from it. Life, life, and more life! MSG

He will have many descendants. NLT

When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied. NLT

Because He willingly bore all of our sins, many will be counted righteous.

Matthew 16:21 MSG

Jesus knew God’s plan for Him and told His followers.

He must submit to an ordeal of suffering at the hands of the religious leaders.

He would be killed.

After three days, He would be raised up.

Acts 2:23 NIV

Jesus was handed over by God’s deliberate plan.

With the help of wicked men, He was nailed to a cross and killed.

Romans 4:25 NLT

He was handed over to die because of our sins.

He was raised to life to make us right with God.

Ways I can show my appreciation

Give thanks.

Praise Him.

Worship Him.

Share the good news.

7.  As followers of Jesus, we identify with Him when we remain faithful and endure persecution.

Mark 8:34-38 To be a follower of Jesus

Let Him lead the way. MSG

Be willing to endure whatever (persecution) may come. AMP

What do you benefit if you gain the whole world and lose your own soul? NLT

Don’t be ashamed of Him and His message. NLT

Acts 5:41

The apostles were overjoyed because they had been given the honor of being dishonored on account of the name of Jesus. MSG

Philippians 3:10

Become a partner in His suffering, even in His death.

Reward: Come to know Him intimately.

Reward: Experience the power that raised Him from the dead.
I experienced persecution for many years.

During the times I endured great suffering, I hadn’t caught on that I should be overjoyed.

So, as an act of my will, I choose to begin now. I will rejoice when the pain of those years comes to mind. I repent for all the years I’ve responded incorrectly. Holy Spirit, remind me. Amen.
