Are you ready to suffer? When it hurts to follow Jesus?
Even though we want to ignore this fact in the United States, suffering is an essential part of being a Christian. Whenever Christians take their faith seriously, they usually end up experiencing suffering, either suffering from without or from within. And even though most churches around the world (and throughout history) have always sought to prepare Christians for this reality, the Church in America is largely silent on the issue of suffering for the sake of the gospel. In this sermon we continue our series through the book of 2 Timothy and look at what Paul has to tell us in 1:8-14 about how to handle being a Christian when it hurts.
Jer 29:1, 4-7
2 Tim 1:8-14
