Suffering…Why? | John 9

We all have questions in the midst of suffering. These questions have often challenged the Christian faith.

As Pastor John walks through John chapter 9 and the story of the man born blind, we realize that suffering brings challenging questions for all worldview and religions, not just Christianity. We learn how followers of Jesus are equipped to say “Ameniona” (He sees me!) in the midst of suffering and find purpose in its midst. And most importantly, we see Jesus, the One who is over suffering and yet willingly underwent suffering to relieve ours.

The Corona Virus has made us aware how fragile we are. The Bible often calls us sheep...fragile, dependent creatures who can’t make it on their own. The good news for frail sheep is that they have a good shepherd.

Pastor John walks through Psalm 23 and John 10. You’ll be comforted as you see how Jesus leads, commits to, and gives himself up for his sheep. You’ll hear stories about being stuck on a mountain in a lightning storm and a skydiving jump gone wrong. You’ll see how a never changing shepherd steadies us in ever changing circumstances.

As the Corona virus spreads, we can all get desperate and lose perspective. While we see Jesus’ power to fix our problems, we may lose sight of who he is and how he wants to reassure us during this time.

In John chapter 6, Jesus heals the sick, provides for the hungry, and uses his power to calm fears. Yet, that’s not the point of the story. He is. And what he wants us to see will give us assurance no matter what we face in life or in death.

We are all spiritually thirsty. But the things we think will quench our spiritual thirst only make us thirstier. Pastor John opens up one of the most fascinating stories in the Bible, a text about a scandalous Samaritan woman engaging Jesus at Jacob’s Well, and finding living water that quenches her spiritual thirst.

You’ll explore what the crane claw game shows about human nature, the meaning behind the phrase “worship in Spirit and truth”, and what spiritually thirsty people do once their thirst is quenched.

“You don’t know these things?” is a provocative question to ask a religious expert. Yet, that is exactly what Jesus does to the Pharisee, Nicodemus.
 
Pastor John unpacks how Christianity isn’t first you looking for God, but God finding you through the spiritual miracle of regeneration.
