Twisted Truth: Suffering & Loss

– Romans 8:18-35

– 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

  1. When tragedy strikes it’s only natural to look for a reason.

  2. We will look to blame someone or come up with a “spiritual” answer.

  3. “Connecting the dots” can lead us down the wrong path (shame, bitterness, false hope, away from God)

  4. Paul helps reframe the problem by telling us:

    • We live in a broken world where bad things happen at random.

    • A day will come when God heals and restores what’s broken.

    • In the meantime, we have hope knowing God is with us and for us in our pain.
