Sermons on Suffering
Forgiving wrongs done to us, shedding that weight of unforgiveness, can transform our lives, says Pastor Donnie Johnson in this final part of his 4-week study of the life of Joseph. But how?
We should remember two things whenever we’re going through difficulties in life: First: God is good. Second: God has a plan. Nowhere are those truths more obvious than in the Bible story of Joseph. Today Pastor Donnie shows Joseph’s meteoric ascension from a prison cell to the Pharoah’s court in a single day.
Do you tend to run toward or away from God when suffering comes into your life? Pastor Donnie looks at how God was with Joseph during his many trials and suffering as a slave in Egypt, and though Joseph couldn’t have known the specifics of how God would bring good out of terrible circumstances, He did … and God always will bring good out of suffering for His children.
“God Meant it For Good.” These words come from the powerful story of Joseph recorded in the Book of Genesis, the focus of our new Sunday series. Pastor Donnie introduces Joseph and begins to address some of life’s biggest questions like “Where is God when we are suffering?”
