Transcript of Seeing the Suffering Christ

Seeing the Suffering Christ Clearly
Mark 8:31-33
The Savior Rebuked and Rebuking
Beginning Open Instruction
Peter's Rebuke
Christ's Rebuke
The Suffering of God
The Suffering of God . . . before Christ
Why must Christ suffer?
The emotional, spiritual, and physical pain caused by sin.
All suffering finds its origin in sin and its effects.
We all cause suffering because we are sinners.

We all suffer because we live in a sin twisted world.
God has suffered from our sin since the fall
Romans 9:22

“What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction?”
God has suffered from our sin since the fall
Hosea 11:8b-9

“8b My heart recoils within me; my compassion grows warm and tender. 9 I will not execute my burning anger; I will not again destroy Ephraim; for I am God and not a man, the Holy One in your midst, and I will not come in wrath.”
God has suffered from our sin since the fall
Genesis 6:6

“And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.”
Justice and the suffering of Christ
God is the only true arbiter of justice
Eternal damnation does not satisfy sinfulness
God's economy of sin and suffering also includes divine justice against the sinful
Love in the suffering of Christ
This was always God's plan - Acts 2:23
2 Corinthians 5:21
Colossians 2:14-15

“14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
"The suffering of the utterly innocent and infinitely holy Son of God in the place of utterly undeserving sinners to bring us to everlasting joy is the great display of the glory of God’s grace that ever was, or ever could be.”
- John Piper
Savoring the Things of Men
Meditating on the philosophy of men
Self-preservation hates Christ and the Gospel
