Reflections on Suffering

Reflections on Suffering – Week 01
Hope in Suffering
RFL002.01S, August, 2020

Paul has been talking in the previous chapters of Romans about the free gift of God’s grace in the person of Jesus Christ.

More speci#ically, Paul has been arguing that because of the life and death of Jesus on the cross, we, by being joined with Jesus in faith, are transferred, as it were, from a world dominated by the law, by sin and by death, into a world dominated by faith, by the Holy Spirit and by the hope of glory.

Reflections on Suffering – Week 02
Called to Suffering
RFL002.02S, August, 2020

A few weeks ago we spent a little time looking at hope and suffering, and saw how Paul encourages us to place our suffering within the greater context of the glory of God, which will be our eternal joy and satisfaction.

We made reference to the suffering of Jesus, who himself endured because of the joy set before him.

Today we are going to pause a little longer on Jesus’ particular call to suffer.
