As we walk through our series on suffering, in life or in teaching, remember we are loved by a God who was tempted in all the pain known, sickness, loss, and all trouble you have experienced. Jesus is our defender as we walk here on earth.
As trouble visits us on different levels remember God’s forgiveness is greater than any and all sin. We do not have to completely understand all doctrines of forgiveness to access God’s gift. When we fail, God is still gently calling us back to His love. You were never made for suffering but you are made for relationship with God. Therefor suffering is an infection and relationship with God a balm of relief. As we struggle to make God our identity we are pleasing God and are in the good fight.
Always ask for God’s help, even if it is a very bad disobedient day far from God. God is faithful when we are not.
2nd Timothy 2: 11The saying is trustworthy, for:
If we have died with him, we will also live with him;
12if we endure, we will also reign with him;
if we deny him, he also will deny us; *((No faith in God ever, Denny added))
13if we are faithless, he remains faithful—
for he cannot deny himself.
We who have humbly answered God’s call have no worries about moments of failing. The Gospel is calling all to fellowship with God always. Suffering is a ugly thorn in this world. God has a plan of redemption, and a plan to use every good or bad event to prepare us for His use for us to reach a lost world. You are God’s hope of reaching a lost world dear ambassador of Jesus.
