A Different Purpose

Part 14 of 'The Biggest Question: why does God allow suffering?'

What's in the series?      Previous: A God Who Suffers      Next: Our Choices Matter

If we are God's people as a result of trusting Jesus Christ, one reason God allows suffering in our lives is because his purpose for us is different from our own purpose. We often want to be happy and healthy here and now: God has created us to know him and live with him for ever. In the long run, this is the only way we shall be happy. Anything else will only lead to despair and frustration. But if we are going to live for ever in this kind of relationship with God, we need to become the kind of people who will enjoy being with Him for ever. The Bible describes this by saying that God’s purpose is for us to become like his son, Jesus. And one of the ways that happens is through suffering. Part 14 of 'The Biggest Question: why does God allow suffering?' introduced by BBC TV Songs of Praise presenter Diane Louise Jordan.
