My chance discovery of your blog is timely as I have been trying to understand the Catholic teaching : physical suffering has redemptive value……..(see link below……”Every Life Matters” )
My Canadian Government is currently drafting legislation …………Legalizing Doctor Assisted Dying” expected to be passed in June 2016. Like many families my family members father, mother,and sister have all passed away from terminal illnesses. Now I find myself facing an reoccurring cancer after 10 plus years remission. I readily admit that” Doctor Assisted Dying” is appealing having seen the terrible suffering of my family members. However, traditional teaching on redemptive suffering leaves me very confused. Thank you for your alternative perspective.
Hi Dave. I am sorry to hear about the re-occurring cancer, but the same Daddy God who healed you the first time can heal you the second time. I encourage you to press into God for healing while you go through your medical protocol as well. He is Healer!!! And regarding assisted suicide, I do not believe that humans have the right to take life when God has not done so. The cancer you are dealing with is NOT from the Lord. It is His will to heal you every time, because Jesus hung on the cross and was whipped to a pulp, so badly that He was not even recognizable as human (Isaiah 53, Psalm 22), to secure your healing. And Jesus healed ALL who were sick and oppressed by the devil. Can God bring good out of sickness? Certainly; He has promised to work all things together for our good. But that’s because He redeems everything using the blood of Jesus–not because He sent you the sickness. He certainly did not send you the sickness. So I encourage you to press into Jesus, the source of Life, for LIFE. And live long. 🙂
I will lift you up in prayer, brother.
Hi Jamie this is an awesome prayer.I thank GOD for you,and i thank HIM for JESUS.I am going thru a very hard time right now,i have no job nor any finances.I. don’t want to lose my home nor my car.I know my LORD and SAVIOUR didn’t bring me this far to leave me now.
I’m sorry you’re having a hard time right now, Cynthia. I encourage you to speak Philippians 4:19 over yourself out loud. Father will answer you as you confess His promises in faith!
