Sermons on Suffering
Matthew 4:1-11 Jesus is driven by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. Our savior overcomes temptation, our salvation on the line, and He comes out victorious over temptation and the devil.
Colossians 2:1-5 Why did Paul suffer? What is it that allowed him to endure the struggle and suffering that he had to go through? Paul knew that the teaching of God’s word was worth anything that he would go through. He embraced this for the good of the elect, the body of Christ.
Colossians 1:24-29 Paul tells of how he rejoices in his sufferings which are for the sake of the church in filling up that which lacks in the afflictions of Christ. What does this mean? Are Christ’s works for our salvation lacking?
Phil. 1:29-30 God graciously gives to His children, working for their good, the gift of faith and suffering.
