As Christians, we often fall into the trap of thinking that the life of a believer is supposed to be more than suffering and hardship, more than just Christ. But Christ is more than sufficient! Christ is beyond what we can imagine. Pay close attention to this message and check your own heart as Paul shows us that we could ask for nothing more than Christ.
Suffering is something that we as Christians grudgingly admit is part of life following Christ. We know that Scripture speaks about it and we know Christ endured it. Yet here in the first chapter of Colossians, Paul speaks about rejoicing in suffering. REJOICING?!?? Really?? That would seem to be very difficult. Follow along with the sermon outline and presentation slides containing the Scriptures as we endeavor to understand living as Christ did (and does) with the difficulties of suffering.
