John 15:9-17

Even through suffering, I will remember God’s love.

God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16 (NIV)

A few months ago, my wife and I were at a restaurant with another couple, and we were able to talk with them about our faith. The wife told us that she did not have a relationship with God, and she did not want to have one because she had experienced the tragic deaths of her father and her brother in a car accident years ago.

She did not understand how there could be a God, given the pain she and her mother felt from those losses. In that moment, I only knew to tell her that I could not imagine the pain they felt but that as a father of two children, I could perceive the depth of their loss.

Days later, during my prayer time, I kept asking myself, What answer could I give to that woman and her mother about who God is? I felt God telling me that God is not rigid and indifferent. God endures the pain and death of people much like we do. And I wished I could have explained that truth to the woman.

Because to me, God’s act of love in sacrificing his son for our sins and the pain of that loss means that God understands and stands with us in our grief. And perhaps the experience of such a painful loss that woman and her mother suffered could help them understand our loving God more deeply.

God of love, help us to understand and remain deeply aware of your love for us so we can share your hope with those who are suffering. In your son Jesus’ name. Amen.

To show God’s love through listening
