What About This? | Grief & Pain | 3

St. Peter’s Lutheran | What About This? | April 21, 2024 | Pastor John Cordrey | For many followers of Jesus, the idea of struggles, grief, pain, mourning, and mental health are experiences that often seem separated or even divorced from the Christian life. There is a belief (though not Scriptural) that the Christian should only and always experience joy, after all, we are new creations in Christ. As illogical as this sounds, unfortunately, many have erroneously embraced a “joy only” life and have forgotten that God makes room for mourning, sorrows, struggles, and pain. If we expect the gospel to bring peace to us now, we also must make room for this pain. We must learn to embrace God’s mercy found in lamenting.
