The message of the gospel of Jesus Christ is one of great joy and great freedom. If Jesus radically changed things (and he did), why is it so hard to see a change? We can be dying inside. We can feel so guilty. We can sin so badly that we feel dirty all the time. We can be holding on “by our fingernails.” We can be bleeding from the wounds of life and from the wounds of other people. Yet when someone asks how we’re doing, what do we say? “Fine.” The honest fact is that we’re not fine.

Monday October 2, 2017christian life •

Finding Meaning in Pain

When our rope breaks and the tragedy follows, we feel that something is out of control. But that may not be the case. Broken ropes are not necessarily the major concern of God. He may have other priorities.
