We shouldn’t be surprised at suffering—we should expect it. Suffering shapes us and matures our character.
Chuck Swindoll shares relevant advice so that Christians today might follow in the same path of devotion to God.
Why are we so reluctant to share the Gospel? We hear so much about the need for evangelism but it doesn’t affect us if we don’t have a burden for the lost.

In this sermon on Colossians 2:13-23, Chuck Swindoll urges you to live your life boldly. Gain confidence in Jesus Christ, empowered by His Spirit, so that no false teaching or oppressive, human-made rule chains you in fetters of despair or timidity or legalism.
It’s in God’s refining fires that the authenticity of our faith is revealed. The purpose of these fiery ordeals is we come forth as purified gold, a likeness of Jesus.
