God's Glory in Our Suffering

Selected highlights from this sermon.

Suffering. We tend to think our suffering is because of Satan, and in some cases this is true. But suffering can also be from the hand of God.

God will allow suffering in our lives to expose the sin that we need to deal with. But that’s not the only reason we encounter hardships.

In John 9 we read of the man born blind. Was his suffering due to his sins or perhaps those of his parents? Neither. Jesus said the man was born blind so that the works of God might be made manifest in him.

We may never know why we’ve had to suffer. But we can live in such a way that our suffering brings glory to God. Job lost ten children. Paul lost his health. Naomi lost a husband and two sons. Jesus was beaten and crucified. All of their hardships and agony brought glory to God.
