Sermons on Suffering
God cares deeply about the pain of our suffering, and it shouldn’t happen in silence. The Bible gives us a channel to express the trials we experience.
Real faith requires courage. You cannot follow Christ without courage.
If we seek man’s approval, we will never find God. The desire to please people will keep us from God’s grace offered in Jesus.
The very same hardships that God designs to grow our faith can also destroy our faith when we grow frustrated. Frustration places us in great spiritual danger because it destroys our faith in God and tempts us into unbelief. But our unbelief dishonors God and disconnects us from His divine blessing.
How quickly our heart can turn from praise and thanksgiving to grumbling and complaining! God always takes notice because our murmuring robs Him of the worship that He deserves.
God delivers His people from bondage by grace through a blood sacrifice. But His primary focus in His redemption is freedom from the spiritual bondage of our own sin, not liberation from external oppression.
God is faithful to fulfill all His promises. He calls us to wait on Him in faith to prove Himself faithful to us.
