This week at CBC

Dear covenant family,

I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see him with my own eyes—I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!
Job 19:25-27(NIV)

Why does God allow suffering? What is the gain in the pain, if there even is any gain? The book of Job gives us remarkable insights. From demanding an Explanation, Job receives a Revelation. A revelation that has everything to do with what Job stands in awe of; God or himself. As we continue our sermon series ‘Mesmerized’, let’s see the blessing of standing in awe of Him, even in our pain!

Men’s Breakfast this Saturday at 8 a.m.
