His Suffering and Glorified Son

(Psalm 22:1,14-24; 16:8-11)

Lesson 5 -- second quarter 2010

Introductory questions to chew

Where is my sense of proportion and perspective when I suffer?

And where is my faith when I feel abandoned?

Might my feeling of abandonment be indicative of my having forgotten God too much?

Where is God's praise from me?

Do I keep the Lord before me? How? When? Why?

What makes my heart glad?

Will I rest in hope?

Where am I in relationship to the path of life?

The Son suffered

The title is good for me.

I've been struggling of late with a sense of abandonment. Oh, I know intellectually that I have not been abandoned. But that knowledge has had quite a wild battle at times with feelings of abandonment.

But this title gives me some perspective and sense of proportion which I'd forgotten.

The Son suffered.


Because the Son suffered...

I shall not be moved!

My heart is glad!

I shall rest in hope!

He has shown me the path of life!

In His presence is fullness of joy!

Ahead are pleasures for evermore!

This concludes my comments based on the alternate lesson developed by Christian Light Publications. To read my comments on the passage for the International Bible Study, click here: Pain and Joy.
