Are you experiencing difficulty that you can’t change, that’s not your fault? You may want God to change this, but God wants to change you. He’s more interested in your joyful response to suffering than in your joy in suffering’s end. This radical attitude is just like Noah and just like Jesus. Since believers are joined to Jesus, let’s learn how we too can respond with love to those around us who see us suffer.
It’s clear that Christianity is not in the driver’s seat of cultural influence. The church is not the center of town or the voice of the public conscience. Biblical values are now intolerant and offensive. Christianity is continually being pushed to the side. And yet we still long for this world to know who Jesus is, but where do we start? Come and journey with us this May through August as we learn in the book of 1 Peter that we are indeed strangers in this land who have amazing opportunities to love from the margins.
