Momentos de dor e aflição têm o potencial de devastar e destruir nossa vida ou de ser o caminho para a gratidão e a alegria.
Sofrimento e amor estão inexplicavelmente ligados, pois o amor de Deus pelo seu povo é evidenciado ao enviar Jesus para suportar nossos pecados, mágoas e dores na cruz. Ele percorreu o caminho final da aflição, conquistando a vitória em nosso favor.
Essa verdade levou Elisabeth a dizer: “Seja lá o que estiver no cálice que Deus está me oferecendo — dor, tristeza, sofrimento ou lamento, como também as superabundantes alegrias —, estou disposta a tomar, pois eu confio nele.”
Nesses tempos em que o objetivo maior das pessoas parece muitas vezes limitar-se a um cristianismo confortável, essa história nos faz pensar no próprio sentido da vida e da morte, da fé genuína e da entrega irrestrita aos propósitos de Deus.
In a culture obsessed with dating, sex, and intimacy, the need for Elliot's freeing message is greater than ever. This beautifully repackaged edition will appeal to today's young people.
Hard times come for all in life, with no real explanation. When we walk through suffering, it has the potential to devastate and destroy, or to be the gateway to gratitude and joy.
Elisabeth Elliot was no stranger to suffering. Her first husband, Jim, was murdered by the Waoroni people in Ecuador moments after he arrived in hopes of sharing the gospel. Her second husband was lost to cancer. Yet, it was in her deepest suffering that she learned the deepest lessons about God.
Why doesn’t God do something about suffering? He has, He did, He is, and He will.
Suffering and love are inexplicably linked, as God’s love for His people is evidenced in His sending Jesus to carry our sins, griefs, and sufferings on the cross, sacrificially taking what was not His on Himself so that we would not be required to carry it. He has walked the ultimate path of suffering, and He has won victory on our behalf.
This truth led Elisabeth to say, “Whatever is in the cup that God is offering to me, whether it be pain and sorrow and suffering and grief along with the many more joys, I’m willing to take it because I trust Him.”
Because suffering is never for nothing.
How often, Hannah asks, do we bring our burdens to the Lord, as He told us to, only to take them home with us again? There are some wonderful and challenging chapters in this book, which Hannah revised throughout her life, as she came to see that the truth is in the Bible, not in our feelings. Fact, faith and feelings come in that order. As Hannah points out several times, feelings come last. The teaching in this book is firmly Scripture based, as Hannah insists that there is more to the Christian life than simply passing through the gate of salvation. There is a journey ahead for us, where every step we take should be consecrated to bring us closer and closer to God, day by day, and year by year.
The themes of this collection touch on her both her life experiences and the overarching Christian values of overcoming difficulties, taking responsibility, exercising discipline, and the redeeming grace of God which, in spite of trouble, gives us our life, calls us to labor, and grants us our salvation.
