In this timely talk from our Rooted 2020 micro conference, Cameron Cole examines the value of pain and suffering in the lives of teenagers. Taking Isaiah 61:1-4 as his central text, Cole assures parents and youth pastors that in his own suffering, the gospel of grace landed on his heart for the first time. In painful times, the word of God’s grace can set our teens free and heal them. We do not have to fear; “there is hope, there is redemption, there is sanctification in suffering.”
The Gospel is rest.
The Gospel means Jesus carries the burden of your life.
The Gospel means you will never have to prove yourself again.
