Sermons on Suffering

Courting Trouble

Conflict is inevitable, combat is optional. Keep from destroying the community of believers by following the Pathway to Reconciliation.

Hated Me First

Rejection is a favorite tool of the enemy. Jesus wanted us to be prepared how to handle those moments.

The Real Tragedy

Is it a tragedy when a young missionary is killed serving abroad?  Or is there a greater tragedy?  Paul’s mission work in a difficult city provides a framework for how to think about current events. 

Itinerary Change

Unfortunately accidents and disasters get our attention in ways that normal life doesn’t.  In fact, we may listen to voices we might have earlier ignored.  Paul is ignored when he warns about an upcoming disaster.  But the shipwreck gives him a platform to be a voice of hope.

Waiting Game

If you find yourself praying “how long, God…” then you are in good company.  600 years before Jesus, a man prayed the same prayer.  God’s response changed his heart.
