Pastor Joshua Hall, January 13, 2018, Sparta Reformed Presbyterian Church.
We all face trials; loss, anxiety, suffering, and pain. The world offers us many ways to deal with trials: denial, bitterness, revenge, anger, etc. but these are not ultimately satisfying. The gospel offers us something much greater. The Almighty, all-powerful, Sovereign God gave Himself up for us. The Father gave His one and only Son as a sacrifice for our sins. The Son became a man, Jesus Christ, and suffered and bled and died for us, and the Holy Spirit is with us always, God loves us! In this message, we examine how God has provided joy and peace for His people even when we face terrible trials.
