Jesus’ Transforming Power on Behalf of the Afflicted

The Gospel Coalition Conference 2013


What do we do when we’re desperate? In this 47-minute panel discussion, Crawford Loritts, the senior pastor at Fellowship Bible Church in Roswell, Georgia and author of Leadership as an Identity and For a Time We Cannot See, teaches from the book of Luke on the reality of suffering and affliction. He offers insight into those moments when our lives spiral out of control.

Our faith will only grow in proportion to our desperation. The very opposition that drives us to sorrow forges our faith stronger and deeper. As you encounter or live in the midst of a time of great affliction, remember that God in those moments is shaping your faith to make it stronger.
