Have you ever wondered why bad things happen?

Have you ever experienced an accident or death in your family?

Maybe you have been angry at another person or even at God because sadness has entered your life.

nothing is a surprise to god
Nothing is a surprise to God.
  • He created the whole world and he knows what is happening everywhere.
  • He is very interested in you and your family and cares about what you feel and think.
  • Look up: Jer. 31:3

Although evil things happen in this world,

God is completely good. He is in control of everything even when it doesn’t seem like it. He is holy, perfect and pure. You can trust God even when everything around you is going wrong.

Psalm 46:1

`

So Then: WHY?

slide13
Bad things started happening in nature-

things like hurricanes, tornadoes, and

earthquakes. Pain and death came into

the world because of sin.

slide14
Because of sin, people do things that hurt others, like hating, fighting and killing.

WE CHOOSE TO SIN

WE DO NOT HAVE POWER OVER IT.

slide21

God is hurt and sad also. He sees that we seek to live our lives without him. We were made to follow him and know his blessings. People have chosen to try and find peace on their own. They turn to anything and everything, except God.

He wants us to return to him.

To hear him!

To follow him so

that he can bless us in

a way that we can’t do

for ourselves.

slide23
Sometimes God lets bad things happen that we do not understand. Some of these things are the result of sin.

**********************************

God has the power to stop people from doing sinful things but He has given them freedom to make choices-even bad choices.

***********************************

God can make good things come out of terrible, scary things. People often start caring more for one another and they can start to think more about God and what He means to them.

slide24
GOD WANTS US TO REALIZE HOW MUCH WE NEED HIM, HE WANTS US TO REALIZE HOW MUCH WE NEED HIS SON: JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOR.
he deserves control of your life because he made you
He deserves control of your life, because he made you!

Sometimes difficult things cause us to think about eternity and about God. God wants your attention! He wants you to be ready to meet him. He wants you to spend eternity with him. He wants to give you a full life here on earth!

When things are going

good, we do not realize

our need of him.

slide31

He knows how you feel, he lost his only son, those who he created, killed his only son. God allowed it to happen, for us. So that we could have hope if you or I would only turn from our sin, to him.

we were not made to live this life alone only with other people
We were not made to live this life alone, only with other people.

We need someone

bigger than ourselves!

We need a Savior and a Lord. God wants to

have a relationship with you, so that he can carry you through this life, in his strength. He wants you to have eternal life!
