There is not a single person that has not had to suffered pain or knows of someone in the family who suffered pain. Some of us go through more pain and suffering than others, but all of us go through some extent of suffering. Many of us have witnessed someone or have cried out ourselves, “Why me, God!” It’s because we can’t see any reason or benefit for suffering. Many people have lost their faith because of human pain and suffering.
Our life holds many difficult times of pain and suffering, but this life is a preparation for the life to come. Even if our present life is destroyed, if we are faithful to God we can say like Paul, “For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens” 2 Corinthians 5:1
Easter was a time of pain and suffering for Jesus too. His pain and suffering didn’t start just after The Last Supper or on Good Friday when he was being beaten to Inch of his life followed by crucifixion. His suffering started from the moment he took on flash and lived amongst us in a sinful world. Ultimately it lead to Jesus becoming the Passover Lamb.
“ On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb, Jesus’ disciples asked him, “Where do you want us to go and make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take it; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. “This is my blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for many,” he said to them. “Truly I tell you, I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” Mark 14:12 and 22-25
Jesus indeed is the pass over lamb who suffered on our behalf, so that our sin could be forgiven and washed away.
