Tough questions prep:
What about suffering? How do we reconcile that with the abundant life Jesus offers?
The abundant life Jesus promises is also a life that abounds with suffering. In John 10:11, Jesus says that he lays down his life for the sheep. He gives life by giving up his life. He reminded his disciples constantly that their way would be his way: the way of the cross.
Paul further explains the idea of abundant life in Christ in II Corinthians 1:5, “For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.”
