The Grace of Suffering
1 Peter 2:19-25
Have you ever heard someone claim, “No good deed goes unpunished”? Some people in the world, and even some Christians, hold the idea that if someone suffers for doing good, then why do good at all? Peter answered that question for us. Simply, God gives us special grace when we suffer for his sake. Peter gave us tips to remember during times of suffering for Christ and a good conscience toward God.
As Christians, we can fellowship with Him in our time of suffering, whatever it may be. We can rest assured that God is with us when we suffer for his sake. “For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:15-16)

I love and miss you! I look forward to seeing you at Drive-in Church on Sunday! I am praying this current safer-at-home order will not last much longer, so we can start reopening our church. Please pray with me to that end!
