I have been asked by leadership at Glenwood Baptist Church to speak for two hours on Suffering - specifically in ministry and the sovereignty of God on Thursday Evening, October 23rd.
Listening to me for two hours will give you hands-on practical experience with suffering. --Insert laugh track...
Here were some random thoughts I put on tape while in Izmir, Turkey at the first of October.
“And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: ‘The words of the first and the last, who died and came to life. “‘I know your tribulation and your poverty ( but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death.’ (Revelation 2:8-11)
The evening starts at 7:00 P.M.
