The Beauty of Pain - Joe Eaton

Here is quote by Joe Eaton, a young man who is permanently disabled with spina bifida, posted by John Knight on the volunteer disability ministry blog of Bethlehem Baptist Church. To read the whole article Click Here.

Both pain and pleasure are meant to point us to the same reality; namely, that Jesus Christ is infinitely beautiful and so much more than enough for our every need. Living for Him, even suffering for Him, is worth every moment of affliction! Why? Because Jesus shows you such beauty in pain, because He is there and He is carrying us through.
The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him. (Romans 8:16-17)
