Scripture(s): Matthew 23:25-26
There are those times when believing in God seems so difficult because we pray and wonder why our prayers are not answered. We see and experience suffering and tragedy; yet, wonder where God is and why does he tolerate suffering. How do we make sense of all this? So often we want to trust and believe in God but when the aforementioned things happen we often doubt God cares or even if he is there at all. So often we say we want to believe in God or do we just want to believe in our version of Him? Join us in this 4-week series God Didn’t, I Can’t, as we challenge what belief in God truly means and how when he doesn’t meet our wishes and desires, it is actually a good thing. Join us as we find out why.
In week #2, we are going to look at our focus when God is not very fun. Many want to believe in God, but I don’t want to be a boring, stick-in-the-mud. To be a follower of Christ, there seems to be so many do’s and don’ts and rules and regulations. If we are really honest, many Christians are just not very likable. They seemed to be hypocritical, judgmental and holier-than-thou, often saying one thing and then something the complete opposite. In this second week of the God Didn’t, I Can’t series, look at how some often have a desire to believe in God but I can’t because God is such a Party Pooper.
