You have placed me here.
You have given me your Word, the good news of the Gospel.
This message is for sinners.
This message is for me….
So I have been placed among the broken and troubled.
In this place I will be insulted. I will be accosted. I will be threatened.
But to suffer these things is the price of this ministry. It is the price of carrying about this Word.
It is the privilege of carrying about this Word.
And in this weakness you show the goodness of your Gospel.
And these small afflictions are nothing in light of what is to come.
