Why Should I Complain in My Suffering?

1 Peter 3:18- For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit (NIV).

"Christ also suffered once for sins" (emphasis mine). Who am I to complain about my suffering? I suffer for sins I have committed. I have earned and deserve the suffering. Jesus suffered for sins and He was the only One without sin. He suffered for my sins. He never once complained about having to suffer for my sins. Instead, He suffered willingly and lovingly. He died in His body for me and then was made alive in the Spirit for me. He died so that by His Spirit I could live for Him. He lives so that by His Spirit I can die to self.
