Christ Our Example in Suffering (Part 1) - Nathan Rages

Suffering is unavoidable in this life (Job 5:7,14:1, John 16:33, Rom. 8:20-22) and comes in many forms.

Christ is our supreme example in suffering (1Pet. 2:18-23, Phil. 3:10, Luke 9:23).  Many aspects of *His* suffering can be applied to *our* hardships;   this message covers the first three:
1. He was not surprised by His suffering (Rev. 13:8, Matt. 20:18-19, John 12:27, Acts 14:22, 1Thess. 3:2-4, 1Pet. 4:12).
2. His prayers to avoid suffering went unanswered (Matt. 26:37-40, Luke 22:44, 2Cor. 12:8-9).
3. He could have removed Himself from suffering [but didn’t] (John 18:6, Matt. 26:53).
