1 Peter 1:10-12, The Suffering of Christ

Many Christians equate worship with triumphal songs that only communicate happiness. They seldom, if ever, sing songs of sorrow and lament. This is a different kind of service. To those who assess the worth of all things by entertainment value it will feel unnatural.It is designed to help us grieve over the death of our Lord—a death caused by our sin. Only such grief can prepare us to rejoice this Lord’s Day, Resurrection Day.
