Table Talk Tuesdays| Glorious Ruin by Tullian Tchividjian

Glorious-RuinGlorious Ruin (Quote from Tullian Tchividjian): “…there is nothing like suffering to remind us how much we need God…The good news of suffering is that it brings us to the end of ourselves…It brings us to the place of honesty, which is the place of desperation, which is the place of faith, which is the place of freedom…It puts us in a position to see that God sent His Son not only to suffer in our place but also to suffer with us.”

Table Talk (The Chat): Do all things truly work for good? Do all things really work for God’s glory? Is suffering included in this? How can it be so? Consider your suffering through the experience of Christ’s suffering. Reflect on the suffering He endured – the physical, mental, emotional, and so forth. Find yourself through that. The suffering that Christ faced brought Him to the place of a more divine purpose. It all brought Him to the place of glorious liberation, once and for all. Can it do the same for you?

Finding Freedom (Scripture References): Hebrews 4:15-16  and Romans 8:28

Table Talk Discussion Question: Do you believe and are you confident that God can “orchestrate everything to work toward something good and beautiful?”
