In this 55-minute session, Rick Phillips, the Senior Minister at the Second Presbyterian Church in Greenville, South Carolina, investigates the ministry of the Apostle Paul and the things he suffered.

As you live the Christian life, you will encounter suffering and weakness. Both the example of Paul and Jesus Himself teach us that the Christian life is suffering, and it’s something that we will all experience. But in the midst of that suffering, we can grow in our contentedness by focusing on the sufficient power of God in the midst of our weakness.
