This is my definition of suffering:
Living through bad circumstances that you are unable to change.
These days, we face two HUGE problems with regard to suffering:
1. It is inevitable in every human life.
2. Contemporary American culture has absolutely no idea what to do about it.
God’s word has a way forward for us. Turns out the Apostle Paul knew a lot about suffering, namely that, in Christ,
SUFFERING leads to
PERSEVERANCE which leads to
CHARACTER which leads to
HOPE which does not disappoint.
Preacher: Andrew Forrest
