Sunday Service : Suffering and Comfort in His Grace

Praise God and give thanks for his great love, He gather his people in Deer Park church and the word of living water come into his people. Suffering and hardship is something natural men hate and Christian do not like too, I am talking about myself, it is for a big reason that God bring suffering to his people and then greatly work on them. The way of God is higher than men and the thoughts of God is different from Men. Scripture tell us the heavenly truth about suffering and hardship,  【2Co4:7】  But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.  8】  We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9】  persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.  10】 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11】 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body. 12】 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.  13】 It is written: 'I believed; therefore I have spoken.' With that same spirit of faith we also believe and therefore speak, 14】 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you in his presence.  15】 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. 16】 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  The points are here1.Suffering of saints life is not a course and it is not in vain. God is good all the time and everything is for the good of gods peoples. By faith we believe and trust in him. 2.Suffering come to those who are strong in lord. It possibly surprise many people, the strong and mature one in lord will suffer more for the sake of his name. at the same time, if Christian can not suffer nothing for lord means they are infant Christian, this is deep teaching from Hebrews.3.God be his strengthen to go through the difficult time and His life will be renewed by Lord. Suffering and hurts and pains are ways to fulfill the work of God, the purpose is new life in Christ and comfort and strengthen and honor. If smooth life is a blessing, life with pains and suffering can be greater blessing to the one who rely on God. God desire a intimate relationship with his like good friends, only good friends can understand you little bit more and you see the love. God is in hurt and in pain due to losing of many children, our hurts and suffering can tell us how much God love his people and this love is not in vain, this love revival the whole world.No matter what have happen or what will happen, our faith and life only go this way, 【2Co4:18】 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. Let Lord and his comfort come to those in sorrow and suffering fro the sake of his name, and let all Christian have stronger faith and greater strengthen to revival Gods kingdom.
