(II Corinthians 1:3-11)




We live in a very broken world.


In the midst of thus brokenness, we must, as followers of Jesu, deal with these two realities:

1)        Life is unfair.

2)       God is good.


I want to bring those two realities together this morning as I attempt to answer the question,  “What works when life doesn’t?”  Let me suggest that there are three parts to the Bible’s answer to this question.


  1. God works.


  1. When we trust His presence
  2. When we receive His comfort
  3. When we give to those in need


  1. People work.


  1. Shared purpose
  2. Shared pain
  3. Shared praise


III.                Ultimately when God is allowed to work through His people,  life itself works.


  1. We have been delivered
  2. We are being delivered
  3. We will be delivered


Conclusion:  A Prayer from Jonathan Edwards….”Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life.  I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee and to Thine forever.  Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit.  Use me as Thou wilt, send me where Thou wilt, work out Thy who will in my life at any cost, now and forever.”
