Intro: We live in a fallen world. It's a world we feel suffering and pain, disappointment and anxiety. We turn on CNN and see hurricanes, wars, crimes, and general hurting.

Theme: How we glorify God when there is suffering outside of our control. Job prefigures the Christ to come who not only endures the attacks, but also defeats the attacker. Suffering has a way to get down the layers into the core of our hearts to really see if the glory of God is what drives us and what we are truly seeking in our own lives. Will we follow God knowing that when difficulties come into our lives he is seeking his glory and his goodness in and over us?

The song, "That's what Friends are For" was first recorded in 1982 by Rod Stewart for the soundtrack of the film Night Shift, But it is better known for the 1985 cover version by Dionne Warwick, Elton John, Gladys Knight and Stevie Wonder. I used to share singing this song with my brother when karaoke bars started to sprout in the Philippines. God called Abraham "Friend". Jesus called His disciples "Friends" (John 15:14-15). When Job suffered his 3 friends came to weep with him, mourned with him and they tried to bring him comfort. People wants reasons for everything, when we go through some form of suffering, we demand for explanation. We ask the question, "Why Do We Have to Suffer?" When faced with this question, Just remember that wisdom is found in God alone. On good and bad times, God is our friend. Be part of a Life Group.
