I recently watched this video of a message by Eric Mason, a very gifted preacher and pastor/church planter in Philadelphia. In it he speaks about the role of suffering in our sanctification.

I was very, very helped and encouraged by this message. Eric's theology is rock solid and his message is both biblically deep and very understandable and practical.

I highly recommend you block out about an hour of your time, get out your Bible and a notepad and feast on this great word.
