“La perspectiva bíblica del sufrimiento”

1 Pedro 4:12-19



Debemos comprender el sufrimiento

El sufrimiento es como fuego, la prueba purifica

El sufrimiento revela dónde reside nuestra confianza

El sufrimiento revela y destruye la confianza equivocada.

El sufrimiento nos enseña a confiar en Dios.


Debemos responder al sufrimiento

no se sorprenda porque nadie escapa del sufrimiento.

Recuerde que somos amados.

Alégrese porque el sufrimiento, nos identifica con Jesús.

Encomiéndese al fiel Creador.

Haga el bien.

Marriage.  It’s made in heaven but it’s lived on earth!  And there’s the rub.  Moonlight and kisses have a way of becoming daylight and dishes. 


Fortunately, God has given us counsel in His word to guide us in our marriages.  1 Peter 3:1-7 is a key passage chock-full of reliable counsel for couples.  Let’s pray that this Sunday will be a real shot in the arm for our families.
