Sanctified Through Suffering

October 16, 2019

Dear Praying Friends,

Thank You for praying for our prodigals and for revival. The Lord loves to hear and answer our prayers.

Over the past weeks, we have been considering what sanctification looks like and how the Holy Spirit is accomplishing it in our lives. Very often, sanctification is brought about through suffering. While the process is never easy, and life’s trials are not what we would naturally desire, God has a longterm plan through it all. Never forget that God’s purpose in all that He does, and all that He allows, is that we become more like His Son. This is the overriding principle of suffering in the believer’s life. Through it all, we have this promise: 

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose” (Rom. 8:28).
