Making Your Bed & Raising The Dead
Topic: Suffering Scripture: Acts 9:32–9:43
In and out of the church, debates and discussions regarding the cause and the purpose of suffering are commonplace. Why do we suffer, and what good is to come from our suffering? Why does the sin in the world often eclipse the good? Because we are all priests in the kingdom, we are called to heal and to help others heal, and this portion of the book of Acts serves as a template from which we learn lessons about healing. All healing, past, present, and future, is for the glory of God, and even in the uncertainty of unhealed, unresolved problems, we can rest assured that God has glorious purposes for every trial we face as his beloved children.
