There is Nothing Strange Here

Dave Magoon, on July 14, 2019. Part of the Confident Hope in Troubled Times series

Main Point: Suffering for the sake of the Gospel has it's place in God's will for our lives.

1. Taking the surprise out of Fiery trials v. 12-14

2. Suffering as a Christian is a small price when it comes to the lost v. 15-18

3. Entrusting our souls to a faithful creator envisions us to continue in the good work v. 19

1 Peter 4:12-19

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. 13 But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And

“If the righteous is scarcely saved,
what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”

19 Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good. (ESV)
