Afflicted For Our Own Good


From Pastor Joe

"Afflicted For Our Own Good"

Since it's out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks, reading someone's personal correspondence provides a glimpse into what a person is truly like. For this reason, I enjoy reading the letters of pastors and theologians of previous eras--perhaps none more than John Newton. Today I'm sharing an article written by Christina Fox, who summarizes the contents of Newton's letter as he explains five fruits of affliction. Enjoy!
