Good way to kick off this Lord’s Day… John Piper on suffering.

The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us, (Romans 8:16-18, ESV).

Amen.

    1. @Foxfier, I just changed the settings last night. I didn’t realize I had to do that manually, so the reply I gave to Kansas Bob would have been the first one that would have received an email notification. Let me know if you get one.

      1. @Shane Vander Hart,

        oooh! It worked!

        It looks like twitter, but I kinda like the more in-depth reply that shows up in one’s email box– lets you know what post, exactly, they replied to, and what you said. (for those of us whose memory is a bit kerfulffled at the moment)

        Oh, and Elf laughed at your kinda-slip-up in your sermon– one of his co-worker buddies and his old div officer were both ‘Nguyen’, said “win.” Given the geek phrase “For the win!” and variations, and that his division *is* geeks, it reminded us of a lot of good times.
