As we continue in our summer series, “Issues For Christ Followers,” we will look at a question that is common to all of us at onetime or another in a message entitled, “Why All The Problems?”

A lot of people, when they have problems wonder, “Does God love me any more? Is He mad at me? Maybe I’m not even a believer.” It’s not unusual to find some very sincere followers of Jesus who are surprised that they have had problems at all.

One of the most helpful texts in the Bible is a short passage in James. He begins the book by talking about problems. In James 1:2 from the Phillips translation he says

When all kinds of trials crowd into your lives, don’t resent them as intruders, but welcome them as friends!

Join us as we study these first verses of James and see how God uses problems in our lives to help us grow as Christ followers.
