But then there is also the other side of the fellowship whereby we partake of the benefits of HIS SUFFERINGS and Sacrifice. He was punished for our sins. Thru the blood of His Cross we have the forgiveness of sins. He was punished for our peace with God, so that we could have and enjoy peace with God. He died so that we would live. He tasted death so that we would taste life everlasting and so that we would be reconciled to God. By His stripes we were healed. He was cursed on the cross Paul said in his letter to the Galations so that we would be blessed.....He died to save us from our sins and to ready us thru faith in His Blood for the infilling of the Holy Ghost.
Being hated by all nations, being persecuted for belonging to Jesus, and all these mentioned good things and much more we partake of in the fellowship of his sufferings....deno....share freely.
