Jesus Never Leaves Us in Pain
The Christian life is not always about us. It is a hard fact for us to understand as our tendency is to think otherwise. Things happen in our lives that may not be directly for us. Suffering may happen to us even when we are faithful to God. Sin in the world guarantees this life is not yet heaven. At times, things happen to us so others can see Jesus with us in the suffering. Shadrach, Meschach and Abendigo are a perfect example of this. They are faithful men thrown into the fire of suffering meant to destroy them. It served to allow others to see Jesus with them.
