All of us face difficult circumstances in life from time to time, from money problems to problem marriages. We are all tempted to punt, sometime on third down. In this ongoing sermon series on living “Cross Current” from our culture, Pastor John Leonard examines 1 Corinthians 7:1-24, where Paul tells us to remain in the circumstances in which we were called into life with God. The power of our new life in Christ is to be shown right in the midst of these difficulties. We have a choice to allow God to use the circumstances of our life for our good or to allow the circumstances without God to run their course in our life. God is bigger than our circumstances. Nothing is being wasted by God as he wants to use our difficulties for our growth.
