June 22, 2022 – Do You Have a Right View of Suffering?
Sermon: 2155 – Can God Be Trusted in Your Troubles?
Pray Over This
“Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.”
There are a lot of people who have a wrong theology of suffering today. They get on television and give this message: “If you get right with God, you’re going to be healthy, and you’re going to be wealthy. It’s cash, comfort, and Cadillacs—you’ll have it all. Oh, by the way, just send me a little money, and you can have it all.” There’s a lot of that going on. Have you noticed that? The idea is that the only reason you suffer is that you’ve done wrong. That you can get everything right and believe God and have anything you want. There’s just one thing wrong with that philosophy—it’s not true. Some of God’s choicest of saints have suffered, most of all God’s own Son, Jesus.
Make a list of biblical examples of righteous people who suffered.
