Overview Suffering...to make us more like Christ.
Suffering precedes glory. Patriarchs of the faith experienced disappointments with God. Jonah, Joseph, Job, Moses, David, and others, are examples given. God's ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts. Our attitudes need adjusting.
Very good personal account from C.H Spurgeon given, concerning the conversion of a man's family.
Great Sermon! Thank you for this very good sermon. We know from Scripture that we will definitely suffer as born again believers and suffering can and will produce disapointment. This message clearly helps us to maintain the right perspective and heart attitude. Although we may experience immediate disapointment when initially encountering trial and suffering, your sermon has reminded me to shift gears and think rightly and biblically about the current circumstances. Thank You for bringing this word to us. God bless you.
