Our PRAYERS reveal our PRIORITIES


Romans 5:3-4
…we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance,
and endurance produces character, and character produces hope…


God Uses Suffering to…

  1. Strengthen our ENDURANCE
    Endurance – The ability to follow Jesus THROUGH pain

2. Develop our CHARACTER
Character – the combination of our THOUGHTS, MOTIVES, and BEHAVIOR

3. Increase our HOPE
Hope – The CONFIDENCE that God loves us and will keep his PROMISES

How to Follow Jesus through Pain

  1. Lean into GOD
  2. Lean into TRUTH
  3. Lean into OTHERS
