Col. 1:21 Once You Were Alienated From God And Were Enemies In Your Minds Because Of Your Evil Behavior. 22 But Now He Has Reconciled You By Christ's Physical Body Through Death To Present You Holy In His Sight, Without Blemish And Free From Accusation--
Let's be honest. Pain turns us into someone we do not want to be. Who wants to be a wounded duck (perhaps better than a dead duck )? Pain makes us do things we would not normally do. If we use our utmost will power, pain can soften us so God can mold us and shape us. However, most often pain makes us do what we know in our heart is not the will of God. Satan uses pain to alienate us from God. In our alienated state of pain, Christ came to bring us to God free of our behaviors, free of our suffering, and free of our pain. Christ came to take away our hurts forever when we see Him in heaven.
