Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God's word is not chained. Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory. 2 Timothy 2:8 - 10
These are very sobering words…
If anyone had ever been in a place to justify complaining about their situation IT WAS PAUL. Jailed for preaching the Gospel… hurled into prison for declaring freedom of the soul. And what do we see Paul doing?
Maybe we don't need to be delivered from our circumstances as much as we need to be delivered from self centeredness.
