Jesus promises that we will have trouble in this world, but God provides strength for broken people. God is with us right in the middle of our mess, and in order to gain His strength, we need to keep an unbroken vision of who God is, be determined to do what God wants, and believe that He answers prayer! In this message, Eddie Cole unpacks 2 Corinthians 1:1-11 and describes the mental make-up of someone who embodies God’s strength in human weakness. Eddie is the Eastern District Superintendent for the Evangelical Free Church of America, serving with the 130 churches from Virginia to New York. He is charged with helping existing churches to experience increasing health and plant new churches among the 48 million people in the district. Before taking this role he was pastor of Salem Church in Staten Island, NY for nearly 13 years. His education was from Liberty University and Dallas Theological Seminary. His wife is Jessica and they have a daughter who is a freshman at Liberty.
