I wanted to take a minute and share a few articles that have really helped me process the horror of yesterday’s shooting. I never cease to be amazed at the sufficiency of Scripture in the face of unimaginable tragedy. Does God’s Word offer a complete answer to why God allowed this to happen? No. God’s ways are often unsearchable. This is one of those times.
But God is by no means silent. He has communicated volumes about evil and sin and justice. He has revealed His sovereignty, wisdom, and infinite love.
And where the pages of our Bibles might seem to fall short of offering all the answers our hearts crave, the Word-made-flesh speaks a clear message of hope and life and rescue from this sin-torn world.
That’s why I like these articles - they reminded me of that. I pray they do the same for you.
