After Suffering a Little While
February 22, 2015

Pastor red borderPastor Elliott's message to us comes from 1 Peter 5:10 (NKJV): But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 

God uses our suffering. When we who know Jesus experience suffering - and we all suffer - He uses these experiences to
  • perfect (mature) us in Christ
  • establish (support) us
  • strengthen us
  • settle us on a solid foundation
