Many proofs support the gospel. The most compelling of all is suffering. God uses our suffering to advance the gospel like nothing else. When we're faithful to the point of death, the church explodes with growth!
It can be tough to understand why God lets bad things happen. But He uses difficulties in our lives to glorify Himself. He strengthens us to stay faithful because it brings Him glory.
Skeptics ask, "How can God exist when there is so much pain and suffering?" This is a tough question! Why does Jesus let Christians suffer for their witness? I will answer this question over the next three weeks.
Babe Ruth towers over the game of baseball. His legacy continues when new players are inducted into the Hall of Fame. In the same way, Stephen towers over church history. His legacy continues when new martyrs die for Jesus.
I'm grateful for freedom of religion. This is a right few Christians around the world enjoy. Let us remember those suffering for Jesus.
