Where is Jesus When Horrible Evil Strikes?

Last week’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut continue to bring me–and our nation–a great deal of sadness. This past Sunday at Redemption Gateway we took a break from our 1 Peter series to address the question, “Where is Jesus when horrible evil strikes?”

It seemed appropriate to try to shepherd our people through the problem of evil and help equip them for the inevitable conversations that would take place around this issue.

The sermon seemed to resonate with people, so I thought I would share it here as well.

  1. Thanks Luke for this message. It helped me focus on God’s will in our lives when there is suffering. Please continue the fight to bring the reality of God into our lives.
