You may not like what I’m going to preach on Sunday. If you don’t, take it up with the Lord. I’m just the messenger. In fact, we were to have started the series, We are Harvest, on Sunday, but I believe that this is what we need to hear first in light of the renewed restrictions. As this year starts, we need some encouragement to keep going. Right now, we’re moving through life carrying a tremendous weight on our shoulders. There is no part of life that has not been affected by this pandemic. So, let’s talk about that a bit and frame it up from 2 Corinthians 4:17-18.

Every difficulty you face in life as a Christian...

...is a light momentary affliction (v. 17a)

...is preparing you for something better (v. 17b)

...is only to be weighed against God’s glory (v. 17c)

...is an opportunity to exercise or abandon your faith (v. 18a)

...is a reminder to never trust your eyes (v. 18b)
