Last week we started a series on Philippians at The Oaks Community Church. Sunday my husband preached on gospel suffering.
It was so good, it is definitely worth a listen (or a second listen!) He also mentioned our suffering through infertility which is the first time he’s said that up front which was kind of a big deal. We’ve already seen fruit in sharing our story and our so thankful that God really can use lead and turn it into gold.
Go to TheOaksCommunityChurch.org, click on sermons. It’s the Philippians series and called Gospel Suffering.
Like we often say- we’re either in suffering, coming out of it or about to enter in. None if us are immune. And we all know people close to us who are hurting deeply. If you’re not suffering, prepare your heart so when you get there you can suffer well. Seek to understand so you can walk with others through the pain and remind them of the love of Jesus. And if you’re in suffering right now, I pray that you will cling onto the cloak of Jesus and feel His sweet love and compassion for you. Praying you can endure and suffer well as you trust Christ to turn these hardships into something precious in His purposeful hands…
