Coming Through the Darkness
“This light affliction which endures for a moment works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” (II Corinthians 4:17 KJV)
Bad things happen to good people. Large Christians endure large pain. Major prophets, major affliction. There are extremely hard points in all of our lives which seem absolutely senseless. But how you go through the darkness will build your character and make you solid in high regions of faith. Suffering – rightly used, undeserved, unplanned – will take you from faith which gets you in, to FAITH, which gets you OVER. It is the bridge that graduates us from a faith which is basic and elementary to a mature faith. Basic faith is foundational learning about God. Mature faith is becoming fully persuaded about the good motive of God. This Biblical faith takes the fear out of living and the terror out of dying.
In COMING THROUGH THE DARKNESS, Pastor Claudette Copeland shares her personal struggles with the contradiction of being a saved and sanctified Christian who battled several life-threatening illnesses as a child and breast cancer as an adult. But in the realm of faith, she considers her greatest trials to be her greatest blessings.
