When we go through painful times of struggle or suffering, the one thing we want most from God is answers. We think that if He would just explain why He is allowing us to hurt so badly, things would be better. But the truth is, God’s explanations would only raise more questions. Answers are not what we need. Instead, we should pray for a fresh revelation of God’s greatness, because once we catch a glimpse of His greatness and glory, all of life and its struggles will be put into perspective, and we will be able to see that He is indeed in control and He knows what He is doing, even when we don’t understand.
The Church is Not the Destination
“Church.” We say that word all the time, but do we really know what it means? Is the church the building down on the corner? Is it really the “house of God?” Are there traditions that have been added to the church that are actually hindering its mission? Which issues are worth defending in the church and which ones are a waste of time? Join us as we peel back these layers, and many more, to discover some eye-opening truths and make sure we’re being the kind of church Jesus intended from the start.
