How is Christian Living Paradoxical?
How is Christian Living Paradoxical? 2 Cor 4:7-12
Pastor Phillips Koh
Pastor said that our lives as Christians is with suffering and we are not immuned to it because we live in a fallen world and we exist, for now, in a frail and weak body.
That is so true, particularly when asked why is the world in suffering if we have a loving God. It's not because God is not loving but because we are fallen and weak.
But in Christ we are afflicted but not crushed, perplexed but not in despair, persecuted but not abandoned, and struck down but not destroyed.
This is the mark of a Christian life - the renewal from God through Jesus, that we live our lives in him and through him, carrying the death of Jesus while living a resurrected life through him.
