A Sermon by Pastor and Friend Mark Webb

Mark Webb – deliverer of Sermon titled “Our Trusty Companion: Suffering”

Suffering is a part of life, is it not?

On Sunday, July 10, 2016, Mark Webb, the Associate Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Clarksdale, delivered an important sermon titled “Our Trusty Companion: Suffering.” July 10th was the end to a distressing week for our country following the deaths of Philando Castile, Alton Sterling, Police Officer Brent Thompson, Police Officer Patrick Zamarripa, Police Officer Michael Krol, Police Sergeant Michael Smith, and Police Senior Corporal Lorne Ahrens.

The sermon message was not recorded as it usually is so I asked Mark to please do a special recording so we can share it with our readers.

I urge you to watch the VIDEO and listen to the wisdom of Mark Webb’s message which focuses on something we all know about….suffering. – Magical Madge

The scripture reading which accompanies the sermon is 1 Peter 4: 12-19 NIV

12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler.16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household;and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And,

“If it is hard for the righteous to be saved,
    what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”[a]

19 So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
