John Lesson 36 - The Promise of Suffering

John Lesson 36 - The Promise of Suffering

by Stephen Davey
Series: Gospel of John
Ref: John 15:18–27

God gave us so many amazing promises in Scripture that pertain not only to life in heaven but also to life on earth. But at least one of those promises isn't so easy to swallow. In John 15 Jesus promises that everyone who desires to live a godly life will suffer persecution. Are you suffering persecution today? If so, you're living the life God intends for you to live.


From the pulpit ministry of Stephen Davey

This resource is from the pulpit ministry of Stephen Davey. Stephen is the son of missionary parents and was raised to love Christ and the gospel. In his last year of high school, Stephen committed his life to serve Christ vocationally wherever God chose to assign him in ministry. His first part-time opportunity was as a college student, serving one summer alongside his father, who had recently planted a church in Virginia Beach. As a part-time youth pastor, Stephen saw the Lord impact the lives of students with His timeless word.

Following graduation from Dallas in 1986, Stephen and Marsha moved with their infant twin sons to Cary, North Carolina, to plant The Shepherd's Church. From the very beginning, Stephen preached expository sermons, while Marsha created the nursery and children’s programs. In those early days, word of the new church’s commitment to Bible exposition and the doctrines of grace spread rapidly, and the fellowship was soon overflowing with attendees. In September of 2021, Stephen reached 35 years of pastoring this wonderful ministry and church family.

The full-length sermons posted here are the fruit of Stephen's preaching ministry at The Shepherd's Church.
