Thursdag parenting sub

This post is based on C.J. Mahaney's sermon, Prepared to Suffer, given on August 13, 2017. The Scriptures are not shy on the topic of suffering.

Is there any reason to suffer instead of trying to get our own way? As CJ pastored us th...

Sermon Quotes: "Prepared to Suffer"

“The memory of their sinful past was to serve as a sharp goad against any tendency to relapse into that kind of living. The memory of the ignominy of their own past conduct was to undergird the readers present suffering for righteousness. A good sober backward look at the consequences of their past self-gratification should motivate them now to orient their lives aro...

Sermon Quotes: "A Perplexing But Glorious Passage"

Trials come in various forms, but is there ever any trial Christians face that is peculiar to them simply becuase they are Christians? If so, how should we prepare to respond? This week, CJ reminded us that, in o...

Sermon Quotes: "An Underappreciated Passage"

“Christians should not think it strange that they are called to endure persecution. Yet they must understand that suffering is not the opposite of blessing. Jesus had declared those to be blessed who suffer for righteousness (Mt. 5:11-12). That word of Jesus is more than a promise. It pronounces blessing. Those who will receive a heavenly reward are already blessed b...
