God’s grace is sufficient. We know that. Yet in times of trials, suffering, and difficulty, our understanding and confidence in God’s grace is put to the test. Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians that he was given a thorn in the flesh, which after much pleading for its removal, God told him “My grace us sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Like Paul, we must correctly appropriate “thorns” in our lives—whether they be practical, physical, or verbal—and realize that though thorns are not from God, they are certainly used by Him. In this faith building sermon, Pastor Eric Ludy addresses the many forms of satan’s thorns and how we as Christians are called to Biblically understand, react, and live with the thorns in our lives.
