Over the last several weeks, we have seen God’s incredible story of redemption (Garden Party– Genesis 1-3) and a powerful illustration of the difference between living you life trying to please God or simply trusting him.

This week, we will continue the theme of God working in the world by looking at an interesting passage in Exodus. It tells of a time when the Israelites challenged their leader Moses as they were wandering in the desert. We will see that we are very much like these grumblers (and for good reason!).

Although we will only scratch the surface in a single message, we will be pondering the reality of suffering and how we live in a world in which suffering is all around us (and maybe upon us).

I want to encourage you to read Exodus 17:1-7 and to come this Sunday. This would be a great time to invite someone who may be going through a difficult time. I won’t promise all the answers, but I will promise that God’s word deals directly with the issue of suffering– more directly than any philosophy or man-made religion can.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
