Sermon Description

Not long after experiencing the greatness of God's deliverance at the Red Sea, the Israelites find themselves grumbling. This episode in the wilderness serves to illustrate the difficultly even God's people have in trusting him to provide for our daily needs. His response is to test us – not to see if we'll pass or fail – but to teach us to trust and obey.

Sermon Description

We believe that following Christ should have its benefits. But when we see believers suffer and wrongdoers prosper we wonder: "why?" It doesn't seem right. When we see the wrongdoer blessed, we may wonder: "Is it worth it to continue following Christ?" How do we overcome these questions and doubts when an assumption about following Christ is turned upside down?

Sermon Description

God in His sovereignty can use negative circumstances to accomplish His eternal Master plan. This can include suffering and hurt. During those times, may we remember what Christ has done for us on the cross. Just as God has forgiven us, may we forgive others, who have hurt us, and seek restoration. May we recognize that He is in total control.

When 2nd-century theologian Tertullian of Carthage, declared, "The blood of martyrs is the seed of the church.”, he meant when Christians suffer or even die for the cause of Christ that is no tragedy. That is God’s design to build up his Church from every nation, tribe, and tongue.

Sermon Description

Suffering feels wrong. We know it’s not the way things should be, but it is the way things are in this sin-soaked world. This should come as no surprise for Christians. And in fact, when it comes for the right reasons, suffering can actually lead to rejoicing and a blessed assurance.

Sermon Description

Arguably the most puzzling yet powerful witness for the gospel is a Christian who patiently endures unjust suffering. Though addressing 1st-century Christian servants, Peter is charging all believers to suffer well in the footsteps of our Lord, the Suffering Servant.
