Suffering Has a Source
September 6, 2020 • Pastor Larry Dugger
It's hard for us to believe that suffering can be of any benefit, but scripture says otherwise. When you think about how Joseph's suffering led to the rescue of an entire nation of people or how when Hosea suffered through his marriage problems in order to demonstrate God's love to the unfaithful - it all starts to make sense. If you're suffering, listen to this message to discover how you can turn your pain into praise.
Even Jesus Needed A Helper
August 30, 2020 • Pastor Larry Dugger
The same Holy Spirit who was with Jesus in His suffering wants you to invite Him into your suffering in very practical ways as you process your pain and make decisions about the future. As you pray, worship, and as you seek God’s presence your soul can remain calm and healthy even when your emotions are working to get the best of you.
Learning to Lament
August 23, 2020 • Pastor Larry Dugger
We do not worship a God who stands back at a safe distance viewing our pain through the comfort of stained glass - but rather a faithful high priest who has walked where we've walked. From heaven, Jesus watched our suffering and knew about it - but from earth, Jesus experienced our suffering and now understands it.
God Understands Suffering
August 16, 2020 • Pastor Larry Dugger
What if God actually left us instructions on how to grieve, mourn, process pain, and suffer? The truth is, he did. In this series, Pastor Larry explains what it means to lament. The enemy wants to use what you're going through to block what you're going to - but God wants to use what you're going through to prepare you what you're going to. If you're hurting, this series is for you.
