God’s Disconcerting Love for All – John 11:32-44
The concept of a loving God gives rise to more questions than answers. Even the strongest faith is accompanied by doubt, because bad stuff happens to good people. Nevertheless, since 2000 years Christians do their best to trust God’s love. We embrace our finitude and the pitfalls of life in the hope of resurrection and new life. Where Jesus went, we will follow. We will end our journey on this planet and then we will enter into union with God. And when that moment comes, when we finally touch the face of God, then we will experience to full extend God’s love and grace. But until that moment comes for us, we have to just keep on trucking. We will try to trust and hope, pray and worship, we will serve and we will love, ourselves as well as our neighbors. And all of that fuels our faith in Christ Jesus, the manifestation of God’s love and grace.
