To be a follower of Christ means to share in His suffering, but it also means to share in His glory.

Suffering which we endure
WILL BE TRANSFORMED INTO JOY
 
To be a follower of Christ means to share in His suffering, but it also means to share in His glory.
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
It has often been observed that there is no physical pain which can be compared to that which accompanies giving birth to a child. Men must, of course, take this statement on faith and most men are undoubtedly grateful for that fact. Nonetheless, all of us have had the experience that time often blurs the memory of intense pain in the past. But there is another element to consider. When pain has accomplished something significant, it is not merely forgotten in the future. Rather it is considered to have been worthwhile. It can be endured because it has a purpose.
 
Jesus was looking for a way to make the disciples understand that the sorrow and suffering involved in being His follower will not only be forgotten later but will be very worthwhile! We need to remember that Jesus Himself took the lead in this. He accepted suffering and death in loving obedience to His heavenly Father. Because of this His Father highly exalted him. To be a follower of Christ means to share in His suffering, but it also means to share in His glory.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: During this life we are like a woman in labor. There are pain and sorrow in this life. When our time comes, however, we will not give birth. Rather we will be the ones born to everlasting life. For God is king of all the earth (Ps 47.)
