We do not earn God’s love, favor, forgiveness, or acceptance. God is generous and gives them to us freely. Check the link here for the video and resources to explore the Generosity of God https://thebibleproject.com/explore/generosity/
It was pretty rare to find someone who was willing to wish the best for the people that treated them the worst. That is until Jesus came along. He had the audacity to tell us to love our enemies and bless them when they curse us. Stephen was a man who lived out that message of forgiveness with an open heart even as he was murdered. Pastor Aaron preaches from Acts 7:54-8:3.
Some people don't trust God because they don't read the Bible. "Why would God allow suffering and pain?" Some people don't trust God because they do. "Why would God command someone to cause suffering and cause them pain?" We'll tackle the ultimate test that God puts before Abraham. "Take your beloved son and offer him as a burnt offering" Genesis 22 is before us to test our own trust in God as well.
