Does Christianity sustain me when I suffer? Pastor David Welch
May 2, 2021
If we ask ourselves, "Does Christianity sustain us through our suffering?" we will find there are no easy answers. Three things that Christianity says about suffering...
1.That suffering is a plain reality Breaking down Romans 8:17-23
Verse 17-we suffer with him
Verse 18–our present sufferings
Verse 22–the whole creation has been groaning
Verse 23–we ourselves, groan inwardly
2.That it makes suffering meaningful and purposeful 3.That it sustains you when you suffer now
1. We know God enters into our suffering with us 2. We know that God gives us the grace to endure our pain 3. We know that God causes our suffering to work for our good
The sustaining power He gives us now is HOPE.
