God’s Purpose for This Recession

Chuck Sheridan Avatar

Does God really have a purpose for a recession?  Preacher John Piper of Desiring God Ministries believes so and he gives 5 very solid reasons.

  1. God intends for this recession to expose hidden sin and so bring us to repentance and cleansing.
  2. He intends to wake us up to the constant and desperate condition of the developing world where there is always and only recession of the worst kind.
  3. God intends to relocate the roots of our joy in his grace rather than in our goods, in his mercy rather than our money, in his worth rather than our wealth.
  4. He intends to advance his saving mission in the world-the spread of the gospel and the growth of his church-precisely at a time when human resources are least able to support it.  This how he guards his glory.
  5. He intends for the church to care for its hurting members and to grow in the gift of love.
Ponder these for awhile, I have been and I find them more than credible, completely biblical.
