Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your
hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is (Ephesians 3:16-18).

When God speaks through us

So many are suffering in our nation.  Those people are our neighbors, friends, and those people are us!  Why does suffering occur? I don't think I could ever write on this topic as well as Brandon speaks about it in the sermon below.  If you have time to listen, this sermon will be worth every second of your time.  The Holy Spirit literally spoke right through Brandon.  Thank you Jesus for a faithful brother in Christ!

Listening to Brandon speak tore at my heart. I can't imagine what he and his wife are going through right now. I can't see the tears in his eyes, but I can hear them in his voice. And I am amazed hearing his faithful response to this situation.

The sermon at our church on Sunday was about the joy of being in the Holy Spirit and this SAME scripture was used (from James). Our pastor actually wrote a book called Scarred Faith which delves into some of the question of why is there suffering. Josh (our pastor) has been on the front lines of some very real suffering and he is a good and Godly man. Not the type to just give a pat answer to huge questions.
