If God is good, why do bad things happen to good people?


Continuing the Conversation Questions
Big Questions | Genesis 37-50 (The Story of Joseph)
Discuss the following questions with your group:

1. How are you doing at being truthful with God? Are you honestly bringing your emotions to Him?
2. What “bad things” has God already brought you through in your life? How has that shaped who you are?
3. What are you struggling to trust God with right now?
4. Go to https://www.rca.org/resources/heidelbergcatechism  Slowly read through the answer for Question 1 phrase by phrase. Do you believe it? (If you have time, read the Bible verses that support each phrase.)
5. Who do you need to reach out to so that they can know they aren’t going through their “bad thing” alone?

Current Series

He Gets Us

Though Jesus walked the earth 2,000 years ago, He still knows about the problems you face today. Not only does Jesus know what plagues us as a culture, He gets us. Jesus can relate. He was tempted, too. He was disrespected, too. He was doubted, too. He mourned, too. He suffered, too.

Faith Church is joining other churches in the Chicagoland area for the series, He Gets Us. We’ll explore that Jesus knows about our insecurity, exhaustion, anxiety, guilt, loneliness and grief. Join us for this new series as we find assurance in knowing we aren’t alone in this world. We have a Savior who gets us and cares about what we are feeling.
