Sermon July 27, 2014: The Despised Tool

Today Pastor Dan’s sermon is titled “The Despised Tool” and his scripture reference is 2 Corinthians 1:3-11. Follow along:

DSCN66741. God is an Amazing Father of Compassion…(3-4)
* Comforts in our troubles.
* With an indescribable comfort.
* Allows us to be comforters ourselves.

2. God uses suffering to shape us.
* It shouldn’t surprise us.
* He never wastes it in His people.
* Sometimes we suffer for the benefit of other people.
* It produces in us a patient endurance.

3. God does put us in situations that are too much for us to handle.
* So we have to rely on Him.
* So we get our hope set in the right direction.
 * So we build our confidence in His deliverance.
* So we can share the story of His deliverance!

DSCN67034. Do not be fooled…we can lose the battle and the test of suffering.
* We can allow doubts to overwhelm our faith.
* We can become selfish, bitter, suffering believers who do more damage than good in the kingdom.
* We can quit being comforters ourselves.

Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. (Romans 5:3-5)
