Suffering is participation in God’s Life. Lent 1 sermon, 2018, 1 Peter 3:18

Christ’s vicarious, innocent suffering for us offered to God is how Christ brings us to God, as 1 Peter 3:18 says. This happens concretely. Christ not only suffers with us & for us, but he also mixes our suffering together with his. This is our participation in the Life of God. This is our Baptism in action in daily life. Christ sanctifies your mundane suffering because Christ himself is being formed in you.
