Identity Course: Session 4 - Why Do We Suffer? - Big Question

The Bible never promises us that we will have 75 years of pain-free existence on this planet. God never promises that at all. God is very kind and gracious to us, and yet we live in a world that is affected by suffering and rebellion. We’ve got to get our expectations right. It doesn’t mean that we should be glib or we shouldn’t cry. The Lord Jesus shows the legitimacy of shedding tears as he stands outside the grave of Lazarus. Yes, we should weep. It is bad, it is wrong, but we’ve got to get our expectations right. Because the Bible says that this will be a feature of the world until God puts it to a stop.

Length: 11mins

Identity is a seven-week course, ideal course for anyone who wants to discover more about the Christian faith, either for the first time or in a deeper way. Each session runs for aproximatly 90 minutes including discussion, a talk and an answer to a 'Big Question'.This free course uses John’s Gospel to clear up the confusion about who we are and who God is. Each session gradually reveals more about the identity and mission of Jesus and shows why he is the key to life and the one who can answer our big questions. The course can be run by churches over several weeks or as an intensive 4 day workshop and is written and presented by Lee McMunn.

Lee is an Associate Minister/Evangelist at St John Newland, Hull. He grew up in Scotland and became a Christian while studying Maths and Economics in London. He is married to Vicky.
