Hope in a World of Hurting
Whether it's your neighbor down the street, a friend at work, or that person in the mirror, we all know people who are experiencing pain right now. That pain may take the form of the death of a loved one, loss of a job, unfaithfulness of a spouse, or financial woes. Is there somewhere one can turn for comfort and hope in the face of suffering?
Phillip Eichman digs into Scripture for a look at how Christians should respond to pain and suffering in this world. "It is in the person of Jesus and the pages of the New Testament that God has most completely revealed Himself as a being of compassion and comfort for those living in a world of suffering."
There is hope and healing for those who live in Christ, for one day, we will leave behind the pains of this world for a home where we will no longer be troubled with the problem of pain and suffering.
