    since Jesus suffered for our sins, we should try no tot sin either, but live our best for God. sometimes we have to disappoint others when we can't do the things they want us to...but we must instead follow Jesus and try to do His will.

    To die mean to sieze from all pleasurable desire, and to suffer mean to endure excruciating pain even when u go through such not because it is by evil u do but for sake of one u love with all your heart and ready to lay all for such a one as christ did for us.

    it teaches of what Christ had to go through .. he had to suffer it also teaches us to have charity which is love and we should treat one another with hospitality an that we also have to endure hardship and having things say about us but we should rejoice once it is deemed falsely cause Christ himself was accused but he had to fulfil purpose so take courage.

    Verse 1~Jesus not only died for us but he was willing to suffer in the flesh. As fleshly humans we must examine whether we are willing to imitate Christ and suffer if needed to honor Jehovah God and support his sovereignty.
