“Suffering”

2 Corinthians 11: 24-26 The Roman Imperial Eagle at the top is a symbol of the Roman Empire, which imprisoned Paul after he was tried by Roman governor Festus and King Herod Agrippa. The eagle holds the chain of Paul’s imprisonment in its talons. The chain is connected to Christ’s crown of thorns at the bottom. The crown of thorns symbolizes the suffering of Christ, who for the love of us, endured the cross. God gives power to a person who endures rejection and suffering in the cause of love and truth. It is recorded in the annals of history that God turned Christ’s ridicule into redemption, that Paul’s prison cell was turned into a pulpit, that every drop of blood spilled by martyrs were seeds which blossomed into faith. Through life and death, we are promised that “God is with us”. Our reward is words praise, “Well done, faithful servant.”
