But what if the Bible and our own experiences invite us to ask a different and better question? What if that better question has a satisfying--though not an easy--answer?
"What is God doing in, with, and through sufferings?" The answer, found in 2 Corinthians 4, may not be easy or simple news, but it is jaw-droppingly good news: God meets those who suffer with the Surpassing Power and Treasure of His Son Jesus' death and life.
To find out more, listen to Fr. Nate's sermon Incomparable Sufficiency in How We Suffer . . . For Glory. (The audio available in QuickTime).
It's the last sermon in the series, Sufficiency Beyond Comparisons, based in three passages from 2 Corinthians (click link for series overview).
