In this passage, we see Jesus teaching about hardship, sorrow, tribulation and pain. Why does Jesus share all this “bad news” with His disciples? Jesus said He was telling them these things so that they wouldn’t fall away.
When we experience the difficulties of life, it’s not because Jesus doesn’t know about them or that He is indifferent towards us or our pain. In fact, as you read this whole passage, the love that Jesus has for His disciples is overwhelming! Somehow in God’s sovereign plan, the pain we experience in this world is necessary for the fulfillment of our eternal joy. And the eternal joy we experience will be a joy that no one can take away from us.
