Series:  The Church During Difficult Times

This is a five-week series exploring characters from the Bible who experienced seasons of uncertainty:  Job, Daniel, Abraham, Paul and the disciples.  These folks experienced times of frustration, pain, suffering, and difficult questions. Like them, we too experience difficult times, and it’s vital that even in the midst of hard circumstances the church relies on God to carry us through. This is core to being a person of faith and a family of God.

 

Week 5

“Contentment is Possible”

Philippians 4:11–13

The apostle Paul went through tremendous hardship in his ministry for Christ. However, he was content and had peace even though he spoke about ongoing struggle of a thorn in the flesh.  Even in the worst of seasons, suffering, pandemic, job loss, etc. we will find contentment in Christ.
