God

If He is the ultimate power in the universe then surely, He is responsible for all the pain we experience.
But how can that be true if we also see that God is the creator, the source of beauty, love and joy?

What if we have drawn conclusions based on some things we see and have been taught, only to discover that it’s not true?

Let’s go back thousands of years, when the God of the universe describes Himself to Moses.

Does He talk about His power? Does He emphasize His control?

And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin.“ (Exodus 34: 5-7a)

Compassion. Grace. Love. Faithfulness. Forgiveness.

These are the qualities that God chooses to introduce Himself to us.

This doesn’t mean that God takes sin lightly.

Nor is he a God who does not have the power to ultimately end all evil.

 

‘The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.’ (1John 3:8)

This revelation of the character and nature of God, who both judges sin and desires to forgive, is set before our eyes in the account of Jesus who died to pay for our sins and defeat all evil.

Rather than identifying God as the source of all pain, we are confronted with the truth that it is God who is the source of all joy, peace and love.

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. (1 John 4:9-10 NIV)
