A testimony by Sara Fritz
St Joe Community Church
September 30, 2018
Christians are not exempted from pain and suffering, and St Joe member Sara Fritz was powerfully reminded of this in 2018 when a workplace seizure revealed a malignant tumor was growing on her brain. Today, Sara shares her testimony about learning to take courage from Psalm 30 and Psalm 128 as she battles cancer on her knees, focusing on loving God and knowing his will for her life during this period of pain and suffering.
In Matthew chapter 7, Jesus warns about judging others.
“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye." -- Jesus Christ, recorded in Matthew 7:1-5
Today, Pastor David Mitchell expounds upon this teaching that Jesus gave his church -- the imperative to forgive.

Many sermons in the St. Joe archive are machine-transcribed. St. Joe is presently transcribing its entire sermon library to render its content more easily accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing, those who speak English as a second language, and to make the sermon content searchable for everybody. While machine transcription makes this logistically and financially more viable, accuracy is sometimes sacrificed. St. Joe is gradually replacing machine transcription with human transcription as time and financial resources allow. Each sermon costs between $30 to $60 to transcribe. If you would like to help see the preached Word of God become accessible to more people, please consider an investment in the St. Joe ministry through the PayPal platform by sending funds to StJoeOnlineGiving@gmail.com, or click here.
