Bread of Life is a ministry of Joel Van Hoogen and the Bread of Life Fellowship in Boise. You can tune in each weekday at 12:00 pm to listen.
Our lesson today is on suffering, it’s a discussion at the beginning of a consideration on the nature of eternity as compared to time. Paul says that our current sufferings are not to be compared to the glory awaiting us followers of Jesus Christ up ahead in eternity. But when Paul says that, he is not saying that our suffering is inconsequential or unimportant. So before we consider what Paul’s argument is, we take some time to underscore that suffering, your suffering, matters. It matters to you, it matters to God, it should matter to all of us.
