For people of suffering, the search for God is synonymous with the quest for justice. If there is a God, then his eyes are always upon the suffering of his children, figurative or literal. And a righteous consequence for those who bring suffering upon others. Yet too often justice eludes.
J.C. reminds me the events of history are the outcome of the variety of human choices, for good and for evil. There is undoubtable truth in that, but is that all we have? Are we merely subjects of history, confined to the limitations of humanity in the glory of all its brokenness? If the miracle of healing comes only in certain arbitrary cases then it seems we are only alone, that God is nowhere to be found, that we are but victims of the events of history.
J.C. has come to tell us another story.
