Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 2/14/21 by Pastor Steve Shields.
Have you ever thought about Suffering being a keystone of Christian faith?
There are two ways that suffering is a Keystone of Christian Faith. It is part of the Christian Experience. Our response to suffering is the real keystone.
Why is it so important to suffer well? Suffering is inevitable in life. Suffering can create in you what couldn’t be created otherwise. Suffering well speaks loudly about your faith and your God.
Pastor Steve will lead us through 1 Peter 4:1-11 to show us Peter’s imperatives on suffering. They include to arm ourselves with Christ’s mindset, live with an eye turned toward eternity and love one another.

How do you respond to hard work?
Some work harder to escape work than just doing it. Some look forward to work because they want the payoff. Some see work as part of living.
In this podcast, Pastor Steve shows us how the Bible presents work. He will show us the wrong ideas that some have which include that work is the result of the fall and that work is the evidence of disbelief or little faith.
The Biblical ideas of work are that work is a gift. Work is imaging. Christ is redeeming work.

Patience is a keystone of the Christian faith.
We can try to obtain patience in many different ways including counting to 10, making yourself wait and taking 5 deep breaths. These tend to fall short in teaching us patience.
In this podcast, Pastor Steve will discuss the 5 ways God infuses patience into us. They include the hard way, the slow way, the intentional way, the gentle way and the exemplary way.
We can open out hearts to patience by looking at the ways God gives us patience. They include looking for what God is teaching you in suffering, learning patience patiently, being intentional about your response, walking closely with God, and imitating Christ’s example.
