Denny Burk preached an excellent, encouraging, and uplifting sermon on 2 Corinthians 1:3-11 this morning at Kenwood Baptist Church, exhorting us to endure suffering in light of the rock-solid reality that God raises the dead.
2 Corinthians 1:8-10: For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again.
