Gracious Sovereignty

Sunday, May 10, 2009

Ruth 1:19-2:3

When Christians finally and fully grasp the meaning of God’s sovereignty, it is not unusual to find some angry about it, and others simply rejecting it. Why? It is because we wonder how God can allow suffering to happen in the lives of those he loves. And this question can embitter some. Although we will not be able to answer the reasons for all suffering, there are things we can learn. And once having learned them, we can grow in our appreciation of God’s amazing love for his children.
