Suffering and the Cross

 

I am so excited about Secret Church, led by David Platt from Birmingham, AL on April 6, 2012. My husband and I hosted the simulcast in our home a few months ago. We invited church friends over for food and four hours of preachin’. It was amazing and I highly recommend it! For more information, go to lifeway.com. To the Reno folks…If you are interested in attending, please let me know!:)

Here is the topic for Good Friday, April 6, 2012, “Suffering and the Cross.”

Suffering is a sobering reality in a fallen world. Followers of Christ are not immune to adversity and affliction. On the contrary, there is a real sense in which following Christ means that trials and tribulations are more likely to come our way. As a result, whether walking through sickness, sorrow, pain, or persecution, the questions abound:

  • Why am I suffering?
  • Where is God when I suffer?
  • How can I suffer well?
  • When will my suffering end?
  • How can God be good and allow such evil in the world?
  • How can God be gracious and ordain such suffering in my life?

During this Secret Church on Good Friday, David Platt will explore these extremely profound yet deeply personal questions through the lens of Christ’s sufferings on the cross. In the process, we will come to a surprising discovery of how the gospel strengthens, sustains, supports, and ultimately satisfies us in the middle of suffering.

Kelli,

As believers we will often face trials and suffering more, it is through the storms that we are being transformed into His image, and I am going to have to check out the Secret Church, it sounds fascinating.

Blessings to you.
