Do You Feel Bitter when Others have it Better?

Faith

Justus Musinguzi


In this message, I'd like us to consider three instructive examples on this subject: the example of Joshua and Caleb's, the example of Moses and his adversaries, and the example ofJohn the Baptist and Christ. One of these examples portrays the envious spirit of feeling bitter when others have it better. The other two exemplify his opposite attitude and portray how we should live.

How can You Replace the Weight of your Burdens with the Wonder of Living?

Faith / Devotions

Justus Musinguzi

The Bible commands us in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 saying that "In everything, give thanks for this is the will of God concerning you." But is this really possible for you? Is it possible for wives and mothers to give thanks in everything when they are overwhelmed with the seemingly mundane, boring and repetitive household work? Is this perspective of thanksgiving really possible for students who are being weighed down by an academic overload or by the hectic pressure of examinations?

Destroying Our Idols

2 Kings 18:1-8

Studies on the life of Hezekiah.


Although the Bible recognises Solomon for his great wisdom,  the Bible on the other hand recognises Hezekiah for his great faith. In 2 Kings 18:5, the Bible says that "Hezekiah trusted in the LORD, the God of Israel. There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah before him or after him."

This message entitled "Destroying Our Idols" is the first in our Study on the Life of Hezekiah.

Learn from Job to Worship God in Your Suffering (Part 1)

Faith



One of the main themes in the book of Job has to do with learning how to worship God in the midst of suffering. The book of Job is about God being so great and so worthy that he deserves to be worshipped no matter what happens to you or to your possessions, or to your family.  So in these series of messages on Job, Dr. David Eby shows us how we can learn from Job to worship God in the midst of your suffering

Learn from Elihu that God sends Suffering to Save his People from Pride and to Purify them

Learn from Elihu that God sends Suffering to Save his People from Pride and to Purify them



A theology of something means you look at that thing in its big perspective. To get a proper understanding of the theology of suffering, for example, you ask questions like: what is the purpose of suffering? Where does suffering come from? What does it accomplish? How is God related to suffering? What is God doing in suffering? That is what we mean by a theology of suffering. 

If you derive your understanding of suffering on the basis of Job chapters 1-31, you will end up with a theology of suffering that recognizes the following basic facts:
(1) God rule,
(2) God is just and wise;
(3) God's ways are hard to understand but
(4) In the age to come, all wrongs will be righted and justice will be established.
(5) God has loved us and saved us in Christ.
(6) Trust God in your suffering.


This theology is not bad, but it is a narrow, partial and inadequate theology of suffering.

In this message, Dr. David Eby brings to our attention a complete and adequate theology of suffering that he expounds to us in the context of the Speech of Elihu in Job 32-37 and the rest of the Bible. Let us listen to him as he teaches us the word of God.

10 Profound Lessons to Learn from the Long Term Suffering of Job



In this fourth message of our study on the book of Job, we will look at the following 10 profound lessons that we ought to learn from the long-term suffering of Job: 

  1. Beware of theological statements that are superficial and wrongly applied
  2. Beware of a man-centred God and man-centred formulas for living before God
  3. Free the false popular theology that always sees suffering as related to specific personal sins
  4. Suffering and prosperity are not distributed in this world in proportion to personal evil or good
  5. Remember that God is still absolutely sovereign over all suffering and overall prosperity
  6. Remember God's wisdom is behind all appearances of severity and our betrayal in this world
  7. Don't be surprised by the sense of distance from God in the midst of your suffering
  8. Be careful in your complaints to God, but pour out your heart before Him
  9. Hold fast to God no matter what!
  10. Hold fast to the gospel no matter what!
