Christians and Pain - Pastor Rick Warren


From Pastor Rick Warren:

"Your pain often reveals God’s purpose for you. God never wastes a hurt! If you’ve gone through a hurt, he wants you to help other people going through that same hurt. He wants you to share it.  God can use the problems in your life to give you a ministry to others. In fact, the very thing you’re most ashamed of in your life and resent the most could become your greatest ministry in helping other people.  Who can better help somebody going through a bankruptcy than somebody who went through a bankruptcy? Who can better help somebody struggling with an addiction than somebody who’s struggled with an addiction?  Who can better help somebody who’s lost a child than somebody who lost a child?  The very thing you hate the most in your life, is what God wants to use for good in your life. Redemptive suffering is when you go through a problem or a pain, for the benefit of others".
