How can a good, holy, perfect, all-powerful, and all-knowing God create a world which is so broken, painful, and filled with injustice and evil? The answer lies in the freewill of man, sin, and the fall of mankind.
God has a history of calling and empowering the unlikely underdog to do the incredible. This week we look at the inspiring story of David, the young shepherd boy, who stands up to the great champion warrior giant of the Philistines, Goliath of Gath. Your giant may change, but our God remains the same, and he is a giant slayer.
…if I find in myself a desire, which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.
– C. S. Lewis
