- Every Christian suffers
- It is denial of the scripture to say that if people are really walking by faith they will not suffer
- We do not see as God sees
- Suffering granted to us by God is proof that we are God’s
- God is sovereign
- The devil only does what God gives him permission to do; the devil has become the means by which our faith is increased
- Stone quarry... where stones are hewn out of rock; the father is cutting...
- Press toward the mark
- Sometimes we suffer that the glory of God might be manifest
- Don’t waste your sufferings by complaining, quitting, running... praise Him for it... tell Him to make you a willing vessal
