Pain Prepares You For The Purpose

Jan 9, 2022 | Chris McRae, Spiritual Growth

“God put purpose on the inside of you, so that it can be birthed on the outside. So that you can fulfill His will and promises that He put on the inside of you, to those that are around us on the outside.”

God has given us promise and purpose, and we must share that purpose with the world around us. Even when we experience pain and setbacks, God’s purpose and plan for us will be fulfilled. The pain on the inside prepares you for the purpose on the outside.

A second generation Pastor, Chris has a heart for equipping the body of Christ. Chris is a graduate of Christ for the Nations and The King’s University.
