suffering…

In all of our joys Christ is better and in all of our sufferings Christ is enough! or as Tim Keller would say, “there’s not shelter apart from God. We must continue to trust in Him because all other ‘shelters’ will prove to be places of greater danger. There is no other place to go. He has the words of eternal life.”  And so in our preaching we’ve felt we should look straight there….

For even in the face of suffering and struggle…. for it’s where we can grow most in our confidence about Christ, about the long arc of God’s story and how we increase trust for the inbetween. I found more and new things in Romans 5. I believe in declaring, and living that “Christ will win out in me more than my circumstances.” So here’s my approximate transcript  and the audio files’ here.
