Finding Jesus Through Suffering – October 22, 2006

“Finding Jesus Through Suffering”

Texts: Mark 10:35-38; Hebrews 1:9-10; Isaiah 53:3-12; Genesis 3:17-19Job 38:1-7, 34-41; Romans 8:17; Matthew 25:35-40

The Problem of Evil asks “How can evil co-exist in a universe with an all-good, all-powerful God?” Pastor Jon Twitchell looks at this difficult problem, drawing from the doctrine of free will, the tarnishing of creation at the fall of man, and the simple fact that, like Job, we were not with God at the creation of the universe. However, we can be confident that through our suffering we can find Jesus, and that we can also find Jesus when we go to those who are suffering. We find healing in His brokenness, we find life in his death.
