TET: Steve Discher "Suffering"

What is the purpose of suffering? How does God use suffering in a Christian's life? "But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed.Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect," (1 Peter 3:14-15).

Steve Discher attempts formulate a framework for suffering and how it points to Christ.

TET: Matt Reagan "The Cost of Your Self"

"Jesus comes and says, 'You don't have to fight, you don't have to try, you don't have to keep struggling... It's over. I did it for you. You can be done now. Just come, be part of my kingdom and enjoy everything, I give you everything....'" Matt Reagan borrows imagery from the film Alice in Wonderland (2010), comparing our self to the Red Queen in rebellion against the White Queen, Christ. In doing so he reminds us to whom our life belongs and the battle against our flesh.
