Why Does God Allow Sin to Remain in the Regenerate?

Segment 1 (0:00) – Are you suffering or anticipating a difficult situation that has you apprehensive?  Suffering is not pointless.  Knowing the truth about suffering will help you not to escape it, but walk through it knowing God is “purposely, systematically putting you to death.”  In other words, making you His image bearer and helping you to “die to self.”

Segment 2 (9:36) – What about illness or death? Is God in that? YES! God is in it doing something magnificent in it for you! He is bringing about sanctification in you for His glory. 1 Peter 3:15 But what about counseling sessions? How would you council one who is hurting? Example: the Apostle Paul.

Segment 3 (17:02) – What is the difference between Biblical counseling and the promise of the therapeutic culture? What should our prayer be in suffering? God is making much of your situation for His glory and making your more like Him.
