Bible Marginalia for Today

delight in doing God's will

I am challenged by Paul’s words in Colossians 1:24:

Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ's afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church…

He rejoices in suffering, for the sake of God’s church. I cannot even imagine, in my world, in my life, having to endure the sufferings that Paul did, as he followed God’s will for his life. Can I say that I have experienced delight in suffering that comes from doing God’s will?

I just wrote about Paul in my blog, too! :) He is such an inspiration. ...I'm enjoying your Bible journaling.
