Between The Breaths of Pain

We say we have victory ….and we do (1 Corinthians 15:57).  But we say it as encouragement, in faith, between the breaths of pain: pain we see in the groaning of all creation (Romans 8:22) and have compassion for,  pain we endure because we choose God’s way over anything else (2 Timothy 3:12), pain in our own sharing with the sufferings of the Christ. (Philippians 1:29). This is to remind us of our estate…. that though we are still in the flesh, it is a flesh which hopes in God and still has compassion to comfort its fellows and has learned how to give comfort to a flesh that does not yet know God.(2 Corinthians 1:1-11)
