Is God A Good God?

Jodie StevensI’ve never heard a believer say that God isn’t good. Many people that don’t know Him blame Him for their troubles and all the suffering in the world.

But Romans 5:12 tells us that: “When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned.”

While it’s human nature to sometimes get angry at God for our difficulties, I find it interesting that the same people who curse God for their problems never give Him credit for all the blessings in their lives.

James 1:17 says that every good and perfect gift is from above. However, the bible also tells us we will have difficulties and trials in this life. We are told there will be suffering and that the poor will always be among us.

The good news is this; when Christ comes back he will make things right. And those that love him will not grieve anymore.

Revelation 21:4 says: “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
