#282 "The God of Pleasure"
by Brent Barnett
 
John 17:17
"Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth."

by Brent Barnett
 
John 17:17
"Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth."

John 17:17
"Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth." 
Nehemiah 8:10b says, “Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”  How does the Christian continue when life continues to be overwhelmingly difficult?  How does he or she remain faithful when it seems as though God has allowed too much hardship, too much pain, and too much sorrow?  Perhaps you have been through...
