Blog 5: I am Content with Suffering 

The word Paul uses for “content” in this verse is the exact same word that is used in the three gospels when Jesus comes up out of the waters at His baptism and the voice of the Father is heard from heaven saying:
“This is my beloved son, with whom I am well pleased.”

In fact, verse 10 of 2 Corinthians is the only place in the New Testament where this word is translated as “content.”

More than half of the 21 instances where the word is used are translated as being “pleased.”

Paul doesn’t just accept his sufferings, he’s pleased with them. He takes pleasure in them.
