“I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Buried with Christ in baptism, raised to walk in a new way of life.“ When Christ washes us spiritually we get to experience the power of His resurrection conquering over the stranglehold of sin in our lives. Who DOESN’T want to feel that kind of power?

It’s the second half of the equation,— “participation in his sufferings”—we like to sweep under the rug. In a world which lauds dynamism, Christ followers are often called to a path of bold suffering. If we walk where Jesus walked, we may be scourged.🚦
