Creative Suffering


What is suffering? And what are the different kinds of suffering? Where does suffering come from-God? Or Satan? What purpose does suffering serve? Should we put up with suffering or simply do whatever we can to avoid it? These and other questions that have perplexed Christians since the birth of the Church will be examined and answered in the light of Scripture. None of us can truthfully say we understand another person’s pain unless we have had the same painful experiences. For too long leaders in the Church have openly taught or covertly implied that if a Christian is suffering there must be something wrong with him. If hurting people can read about others who have suffered the same things they are going through, it will cause them to go deeper into Christ for healing, instead of hiding their pain down inside themselves. We all need to know that our pain, our experiences, should not be denied but, in Jesus, should become Creative Suffering!
