Bible Text: 2 Corinthians 12:9 |


"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me."

-2 Corinthians 12:9

Author C. S. Lewis wrote in his book “The Problem of Pain”, “We can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world. “In last Sunday’s message we approached the subject of understanding God’s grace and presence in pain-filled times – this week we continue that message. In the quote above, C. S. Lewis reminds us of something we already know – pain gets our attention! However, he also states that this is a voice of God. Is this true?

We are looking at questions that people have submitted and one is, “How can we see God's grace when children or innocent people are harmed?” This Sunday we will hear some real life stories of how God’s voice and presence was heard in the most trying, pain-filled times.
