PAIN & GLORY

James Dexter “Jim” Weatherly penned and Gladys Knight and the Pips sung the song entitled, “Best Thing That Ever Happen.” This R&B ballad was released in 1973 and it made it up to #3 on the US Billboard charts. The hook was off the chain, check it out; “If anyone should ever write my life story.For whatever reason there might be, you’ll be there between each line of pain and glory. Cause you’re the best thing that ever happened to me.” Let me lift it up! 

What is this pain and glory? I believe Paul gives us a clue in Romans 8:18, “[The pain we experience pain] is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later.” C.S. Lewis said, “Jesus took away the only kind of suffering that can really destroy you: that is being cast away from God. He took so that now all suffering that comes into your life will only make you great.” Ok, let me answer the question; you’ll find that “Christ” is in between the pain and the glory in your life’s story!
