To follow up on Scott Hubbard’s article I shared with you Wednesday, I’m suggesting my sermon on the James 1 text Scott referenced. You know, where God says, “Consider it all joy…when you encounter various trials…”
John Piper says there’s only one reason that verse is not stupid…Because our God is God and He will meet us and sustain us in the trouble! We know that He really does “cause all things to work together for good to those who love God!” Awesome God!
I originally preached James 1 in July 2015. It is entitled Hard Things
Mercy Me sings it beautifully… “I know You're able and I know You can, Save through the fire with Your mighty hand, But even if You don't, My hope is You alone.”
Yeah…It is well with my soul!
Here’s the link to Mercy Me’s song, Even If – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6B8SjPxo8o
Please call us if you need us. We are praying for you.
We love you,
