Someone I know died of cancer last week. She was a beautiful person and loved God. I know she is with Him now and is pain-free - but sometimes it's hard to understand how a good God can let bad things happen. Sin entered the world when Adam and Eve sinned and the world has been broken since. But there is hope!
In Romans 8:18, 21 Paul said, We have sufferings now. But the sufferings we have now are nothing compared to the great glory that will be given to us... But there was this hope that everything God made would be set free from ruin.
Revelation 21:4 says, He [God] will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain. All the old ways are gone.
The reason we have this hope is because God sent Jesus to die in our place so that we can spend eternity with him. So, this Christmas season, remember that despite the pain, there is hope because of the gift of Jesus.
