SERIES: Darkroom
MESSAGE: Facing Darkness with Grace
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 12:1-10

How do you face dark times? Notice I didn’t ask how should you face dark times, but rather how do you? Pain and suffering are universal, but for the Christian, they are valuable and even beneficial. Today we take a look at the apostle Paul’s own personal experience. He had a very positive episode followed by a very negative one. It rattled him at first, but eventually he learned a lesson that lifted him to a place where he could face the darkness with confidence and grace.


  1. God Blesses Us with Positives (vv. 1-6)

  2. God Balances Us with Negatives (vv. 7-8)

  3. God Benefits Us with Directives (vv. 9-10)

Keywords: affliction, darkness, directive, evil, grace, heaven, suffer, negative, pain, paradise, positive, prayer, thorn, trust
