In recent years, some people have questioned the actual existence of Jesus. Some claim that the idea of a Savior was manufactured by certain people and it ended up becoming a religion.

The problem with this thinking is that there are simply too many biblical and extra biblical writings that attest to the real person we know as Jesus Christ, who lived and died in the first century.

A misguided idea

appearances

Does it sometimes feel like people judge you primarily on your looks and appearance? That's certainly not how God sees things. Look what he said to Samuel:

“Man does not see what the Lord sees, for man sees what is visible, but the Lord sees the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).

Oh what blessed relief — what joyous surrender is the reminder that none of it matters. There is a God who has lovingly cultivated a relationship for us where we can sink into the promise that we are loved beyond measure, beyond our expectation, and most definitely beyond what we deserve.

Your question

We recently received a question from a Fervr reader who said,

"I'm really lazy nowadays. I don't study properly, I keep putting off things and I'm going down in my studies. But I can endlessly do stuff that holds my interest like watching TV, surfing the net ... but not studying. Sometimes, I become so lazy I forget to even pray to God. I pray desperately only when I'm in need of something. I totally know that I'm wrong. I try to push myself to do things but it seems like it's all in vain. I don't know what to do now. Can you help me?"

Our answer

The past. For some people, it's a word that numbs their entire body. It's a sad and hollow void filled with memories, events, faces and places that they want to forget.

But is the past something we could one day accept? Or, is it a stain in our lives we should try to cover up with our accomplishments and good deeds? What is God’s view on our past?

1. The past can cloud our view of the future God has planned for us

evil and suffering

In a recent post, we took a look at the problem of evil. We discovered that moral evil exists because of human choice, even though God continues to warn us of the consequences of choosing evil. Part of those consequences is suffering. We have all suffered because of things people have done to us, and many suffer greatly around the world through war, greed, oppression and other evil human acts. So, why does God allow this suffering to continue, and does he have a plan to remove evil and suffering forever?                    

God allows suffering to show us that something is wrong

Although evil existed at the time God created the world, the consequences of evil such as human death, pain, and suffering did not. By continuing to allow suffering in this world, God shows us every day that something is wrong. Suffering is a painful reminder to us that we have been separated from Him because of sin.
