Boice on suffering

Filed under: Boice,Suffering — cubsfan1980 @ 2:54 am

“Suffering allows the believer to show the supernatural strength of His master. If everything is going well with you and you rejoice, what makes you different from unbelievers? Nothing at all! They also (usually) rejoice when circumstances are favorable. If you are able to rejoice when things are not favorable, however, then Jesus Christ may be clearly seen in you and the supernatural power of the Christian faith is made manifest. Sufering is the dark background for the supernatural radicance of Christ’s life.”
