The Wonder of Suffering - a study of 1 Peter 1:8-12

Surely, if you have every found yourself in a difficult time (and who has not?), you have found yourself wondering, “why?” “Why him?” “Why her?” “Why me?” “Why now?” “Why this?” Perhaps your wondering begins to ask questions like, “If Jesus really is who He says He is, would my son still experience the constant bullying he gets at school?” And, “If God really loved me like He says He does, would I still be suffering the effects of an abusive relationship?” Or, “If God really cared for me and listened to my prayers, would He not have already helped me overcome my secret addiction?” Although questions in times of pain and trial are appropriate, and though it is thoroughly human to wonder if God is even present in such circumstances, is it possible to wonder – and rejoice! 1,998 more words
