Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from the live broadcast of the IHOPU Student Awakening, 12/12/09
“I turned to Allen the other day and I said, ‘you know what? When we’re in the presence of the Lord, martyrdom doesn’t seem like such a bad deal.’
When you’re living in the glory of God, you can understand how Steven, he’d been stoned. He looks up and goes ‘forget about the stoning. I see the Son of Man standing at the right hand of the Most High!‘”
2 Cor. 1:3-5
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our affliction, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, through the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound to us, even so our comfort also abounds through Christ.
1 Cor. 10:13
No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
