About the Book

We Rejoice in Our Sufferings is based on Romans 5:1-5. It explores the passage in depth, but the primary focus is on suffering, trials, and tribulations—and why we can rejoice in spite of them.

Quoting Scripture, the author notes, “Suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope. And hope does not disappoint us.” (Romans 5:3-5)

Tom Kingery, a retired United Methodist pastor, urges you to think about how you have suffered. There are many types of pain, many kinds of trouble, and many times when we want to sing the blues.

However, if we learn to endure by God’s grace, we can gain not only a positive perspective that is rooted in faith, but we can feel triumphant. We can overcome.

Understanding where God is in the midst of our trials helps us understand who God is and what our suffering means. Sometimes there is a purpose to our suffering, so rejoice!
