Suffering and Comfort

This past Lord's Day, the Lord granted us the privilege to hear 2 Corinthians 1:3-11 expounded. We meditated on the fellowship of suffering and comfort as part of our "Life Together: Spiritual Fellowship in the Church" series. 2 Corinthians 1 is a remarkable passage, full of gloriously challenging and assuring truth.

This morning, the Lord graciously granted the opportunity to listen to a couple others expound this wonderful section of God's word. I thought you might wish to hear some of these saints handle this text.

Sinclair Ferguson, "Working Together with Him: Great Distress, Greater Comfort" (2 Cor. 1:1-13)
John Piper, "The Line of Prayer" (2 Corinthians 1:11)
Mark Dever, "Good Grief," from the series Genuine Paradox: Real Christianity (2 Cor. 1:1-2:11)

Also, Piper has posted this related meditation today: Why God Doesn't Fully Explain Plain.
