Contrary to superficial American expectations, God does some of his best work when we can t make life work, when all the outward measures spell chaos and disaster, says Peter K. Nelson in his article written for CHRISTIANITY TODAY magazine.
Why does the American Christian culture often focus on prosperity in the forms of physical health, material wealth, or earthly success? In this study we will ask: How does God use pain and suffering in the lives of his children? What roles do confession, repentance, brokenness, honesty, and humility have in our spiritual growth, the advancement of the gospel, and our glorifying God?
