Matt Chandler – How A Calvinist Suffers

I think I’ve posted before some video clips of Matt Chandler, a fiery young guy in Texas. He’s spoken at various conferences including Desiring God conferences. I was moved to tears when I first heard a clip from one of his sermons – see it here on youtube.

Today I just read the news that Chandler has a serious form of brain cancer. It’s pretty bad, and as of right now it remains to be seen how long he’ll live. Chandler’s 35, with 2 young kids – the story of how he’s dealing with it can be found here in an article entitled “Suffering Well”.  Or you should check out his video message, for his church, taped just before his surgery (he’s grateful that God deemed him worthy of suffering) – see it here. I find this a mighty message, and a humbling one since I haven’t suffered very much. Finally, his most recent message, posted Feb. 19 – last Friday – is here.

Read, listen, consider, bow down, bless.
