Evil, Suffering, and the Cross, Part ThreeRev. Michael Calvert, Ph.D., August 2, 2020
Part of the The Church Under the Cross series.
Sunday’s message will once again be based upon 1 Peter 4:12-13, as well as Colossians 1:24. From these inspired passages of Scripture we will probe the mystery of how, in our present afflictions, we “ share Christ’s sufferings” (1 Peter 4:13).
This intriguing phrase will tell us two things about our life ‘under the cross.’
First, we have been called to walk the same pathway of affliction that our Lord walked, especially as we approach His Second Advent. And secondly, because of our faith-union with Christ, we are never alone in our afflictions.
