Remember God’s presence
Accept good and bad
From his store.
He shares every sorrow
He sends you,
So worship him, praise,
Then, though you share
His Son’s passion,
His loneliness, anguish,
You will also share
His glory, his joy,
And his reign.
You are the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT).
Should we accept only good from the hand of God, and never anything bad? (Job 2:10; NLT).
In all their suffering he also suffered (Isaiah 63:9; NLT).
As we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too (2 Corinthians 1:5; RSV).
Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying” (John 11:25; NLT).
If we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering (Romans 8:17; NLT).
If we endure hardship, we will reign with him (2 Timothy 2:12; NLT).
