Christian suffering is not a hindrance to the spread of the gospel. Suffering is, very often, God’s means of spreading the gospel.
What is the key to effective ministry? Just about every Christian wants to be used by God to transform the lives of others. So how does God use us? How does he make ministry effective in us and through us? It’s a question Pastor John asked and then answered from Scripture, in front of an auditorium full of college students at the Passion Conference 2006 in Nashville. His message was titled “How Our Suffering Glorifies the Greatness of the Grace of God.” Have a listen.
