Momentary, Light Affliction

"Momentary, light affliction" is opposite of "eternal, weighty glory".
"For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory." ~ 2 Corinthians 4:17
Here's an interesting insight into this scripture, courtesy of Oswald Chambers book "The Love of God - The Message of Invincible Consolation". Chambers says: "Whenever Paul tries to state the unfathomable joy and glory which he has in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus, it is as if he cannot find words to express his meaning. In order to try to express it here he balances his words.
For instance, "affliction" is matched with "glory";
"light" is matched with "weight";
and "moment" is matched with "eternal".
I wonder if we balance our words like that?"

History

Born into a family of Gospel singers & musicians in South Bend, Indiana, David began singing & playing the piano as a small child.
In the 1970's, his musical style was shaped by the acoustic rock artists of the time - and in the 1980's David played the local nightclub circuit as keyboardist/singer with the band Justus.
But God comes in places unlooked for - unexpectedly.
After committing himself to the work of the Gospel, he served for three years as Praise & Worship Leader at a local church.
Now, David & his wife Debbie have committed themselves to sharing the Gospel of the life changing Power & Love of Jesus Christ, through this music ministry, based in Elkhart, Indiana.
