Just when Job felt he could not reason with God, the Lord used Elihu to answer the questions in Job’s heart and bring Job back to God’s goodness. This week. Rev. Jeremiah Cheung reminds us that our God alone does wonders and His ways and deeds may baffle us. Yet we can rest assured that God is good and that He will never seek to harm us.
Sympathy alone isn’t enough when someone is in distress. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung urges us to empathise and see things from the perspective of the one who suffers, then do what we can to help find meaning in their suffering.
Is there true justice and fairness when there is no freedom of choice? This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung reminds us that God will not interfere with the decisions we make for He has given us free will. Instead, God allows us to learn about His justice in the process. As God’s children, it is for God’s love and salvation that we pursue justice.
It’s hard to understand why there is suffering in the world and it’s an even bigger mystery why the righteous suffer. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung urges us to view suffering through the law of grace: we sinned and yet it is Christ who died to pay the price. Let us practice the grace of acceptance to find a path out of suffering.
