When Christ was preparing for the cross the people came shouting save us now. His suffering to save you and I was the purpose for which he came to earth.
Christ suffered for us an that was his legacy. Paul said we should have the mind of Christ, meaning suffer for Christ.
WHAT MUST WE DO
Christ denied himself and he was lifted or exalted. He suffered for us and left a legacy for us to follow (Romans 16:18-35). Suffering is part of us as Christians, Christ suffered for those who believed in him (John 3:16). We must look to Christ whenever we are in pain because He is the ultimate author and finisher of our faith.
There is a reward for anyone who avails him or herself to pain or suffering. Suffering is inevitable hence whatever it is Christ has our back.
