The glory of God in suffering

Having just finished studying and teaching Romans 8:26-30 and being reminded of God’s purpose for us–conformity to the His Son. Being reminded that God has a plan for good, our good even in difficulty, but that what is good my not be know until eternity.

In light of that context, I was struck by the simplicity, passion and directness of this video by John Piper. I don’t know that I could say it with the boldness he stated.

But God is not made more glorious when things are easy for me. His glory does not change–His goodness does not waiver whether things are going smoothly or I am experiencing difficulty.

I love to study the Bible and I love to engage with others in learning. I had been privileged to do this on a regular basis through church ministry and through part-time teaching at a local Bible colleges. Helping individuals learn to feed themselves through their own study of God’s Word is joy-giving to me. Influencing groups to do life and church from a biblically grounded, theologically faithful perspective is my passion.
