Scripture Reading -

Prayer

Peace with God (vs 1-2)

Prayer does wonders!
Philippians 4:6–7 ESV
6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Behind our prayers is a firm foundation in Christ.
We need to have a firm foundation. (Leaning Tower of Pisa)
Romans 5:1–2 ESV
1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Our Foundation - justified by God through our faith.
This has brought peace between us and God
no longer at war with God
before faith in Christ we had no desire for God
we had no desire to love our neighbor as ourselves
He changes rebels into willing, loving children
God has declared that we are righteouos by faith.
Faith in Jesus brings peace with God because our heart toward him and others has been changed
Our house is built on a solid foundation
Matthew 7:24–27 ESV
24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
Matthew 7:24
Romans 5:1–2 ESV
1 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Standing in Grace
surrounded by God’s grace
This is our position in Christ
Access by faith
No bad thing can penetrate God’s grace and bring harm to us, but suffering and hardship only serves to make us stronger.
The glory of God - Our destiny
Because our hope is in our future deliverance from this corrupt world, we can endure what Paul calls this “slight momentary affliction”
2 Corinthians 4:17–18 ESV
17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Glory in Suffering

Know the value of suffering. It has a God given purpose!
Why Christians suffer.
Suffering is common to all in a fallen world
Romans 5:12 ESV
12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—
Suffering Corrects Christians
2 Corinthians 1:9 ESV
9 Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead.
Psalm 119:67 ESV
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep your word.
Suffering is an opportunity to bring God glory
John 9:3 ESV
3 Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him.
Suffering is a Christian’s privilege
Acts 5:41 ESV
41 Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the name.
Suffering is constructive.
Perseverance
Character
1 Peter 4:12 ESV
12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.
Hope
Suffering changes our hearts desires from the things of this world to God and to the things of heaven.
Acts 7:54–59 ESV
54 Now when they heard these things they were enraged, and they ground their teeth at him. 55 But he, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. 56 And he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” 57 But they cried out with a loud voice and stopped their ears and rushed together at him. 58 Then they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their garments at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59 And as they were stoning Stephen, he called out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”

Joy in Our Savior (vs11)

God’s Love for Sinners
Powerless (v6)
Ungodly (v6)
sinners (v8)

2016No more love to God is there in an unrenewed heart than there is life within a piece of granite. No more love to God is there within the soul that is unsaved than there is fire within the depths of the ocean’s waves. And here is the wonder, that when we had no love for God, he should have loved us!—42.27

While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
enemies (6-8, 10)
We have a certain future.
Romans 8:18 ESV
18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Romans 8:31–38 ESV
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,
