Walk with Pastor Matt as he looks at . Everyone suffers but God has designed suffering as the vehicle of sanctification; it makes us holy and actually works out for our salvation. Let us pray for the ‘supply of the Spirit of Christ Jesus’ so that the faith of our brothers and sisters does not fail, but only deepens, in the face of hardship.
19 for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance, 20 as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. 21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
