Suffering and Set Apart
This past weekend Bill Heck continued the series Perfectly Weak, exploring how God can show His heart in and through our lives. Suffering and weakness are not a signal of God’s absence, but rather a conduit to show His power and greatness through us. Blending into the world around us and seeking to be comfortable does not allow us to fully be Christ’s Ambassadors. 2 Corinthians, Paul urges us to embrace our calling and to fully serve God out of reverence for Him.
It’s a call to:
- Serve - 2 Corinthians 6:1-3
- Suffer - 2 Corinthians 6:4-10
- Relationship - 2 Corinthians 6:11-13
- Separation - 2 Corinthians 6: 14-18
- Sanctification - Read 2 Corinthians 7:1
Take a moment and ask God to examine you and to show you where you’re not separate or being faithful to your call as an Ambassador for Christ. What things, relationships or habits are holding you back?
