“Why Does God Allow Pain and Suffering?”
Job 2:1-10

This is one of the most difficult questions people face. The Bible looks at suffering directly; one of the most poignant discussions of suffering is in the book of Job. In the end, Job doesn't get an answer to why we suffer. But what he does get is a revelation that God is there and that he has purposes we won't always understand. we will not always understand all the circumstances and sorrows we encounter. In the end, what matters is how we respond to our suffering - not as a victim, but in faith, knowing God is with us and for us.

The Christian faith is that suffering is at the center in the death and resurrection of Jesus. This shows us that God is with us in our suffering and that, in Jesus, he is working to overcome it. One day, the birth pangs will be over and the new creation in Jesus will be here and suffering will end.

“Is There a God?”
Romans 1:16-20

At times, we wonder if there is anything beyond what we see. Everyone wonders about God sometimes, even if we don’t believe. Statistics indicate that 8-85% of people believe in God (that includes people who don’t consider themselves “religious”). God’s presence peeks through in creation, in ones’ sense of morality and justice, in thinking about other minds and in love. A question beyond “does God exist” is “what if he does?”. Resting in a God who cares for us and has a plan for us changes everything about how we live—our family life, our schools and workplaces, our neighborhoods, our city. Imagining that God is with us always changes our outlook on everything!

“Does Life Have a Purpose?
Ecclesiastes 1:1-8a, 12-18

Most people do not spend a lot of time thinking about our purpose. However, sometimes when we are stressed or tired, a haunting question may creep into our mind: what if there is no purpose? Further, even if we do sense a larger purpose for our life, finding answers to life’s everyday questions can be difficult.

Who should I spend time with?   Where should I work?   How should I spend my money?

All curl back on the question of our purpose.

Ecclesiastes addresses this question head on, trying on all the ways people may try to find purpose.

His verdict? “everything is meaningless.” Ecclesiastes is a shadow to the gospel. “Under the sun”—life without God—can feel meaningless. But God breaks into our world through Christ’s incarnation, resurrection, and return and shows life purpose tied to the coming kingdom of God. Our life tied up with God provides a sense of purpose.
