Thank you to Ray Ortland for posting this video on his blog.
Dr. Zahl makes the strong point in this video that suffering people need to hear about grace in their hard circumstances from the pulpit. That has made a huge difference in my life – hearing the Word of God proclaimed clearly and passionately over and over again!
That is part of the gift of the ebook, Disability and the Sovereign Goodness of God. Pastor John uses the words of the Bible to help us understand something about God and his purposes, which puts my circumstances into proper perspective in light of God’s sovereign goodness and power.
And that is why I so strongly recommend this ebook to pastors. You have members with disabilities in your churches, or affiliated with families in your churches. They will benefit from your carefully using God’s word, including the hard passages related to disability, sickness and suffering, to reveal more about the character, promises and sovereignty of God over all things.
