I. You need to know that Christians aren’t immune to suffering.

I. You need to know that Christians aren’t immune to suffering.

Soleman said:
Ecclesiastes 2:22–23 ESV
22 What has a man from all the toil and striving of heart with which he toils beneath the sun? 23 For all his days are full of sorrow, and his work is a vexation. Even in the night his heart does not rest. This also is vanity.

You need to know that God is Sovereign

Job 2:10 ESV
But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women would speak. Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
Job 2:10

II. You need to know that the Father cares about your sorrow.

Psalm 34:18 ESV
18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

You will not fully know the sympathy of God apart from the sorrow of this world.

2 Corinthians 1:3–4 ESV
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

III. You need to know that Christ has a place for kids in his kingdom.

Luke 18:15–17 ESV
15 Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. 17 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
Matthew 19:13–14 ESV
13 Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, 14 but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Children here is paideia, just a general word, but Luke uses the word brephos, that’s babies, that’s infants, sucklings, little children.
14
I believe that the Bible is teaching us that Our Lord graciously and freely received all those who die in infancy – by his grace that is given to them because of the work of Christ.
John F. MacArthur Jr., John MacArthur Sermon Archive (Panorama City, CA: Grace to You, 2014).
Laylee Rose - Is Good - She moved from the NICU to the Throne Room! That’s a promotion.

You need to know that God’s grace is enough.

2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
1 Corinthians 12:9 ESV
to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit,
Matthew 7:24–25 ESV
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.
The hymn-writer understood this wonderful picture:
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
His oath, His cov’nant, and His blood
Support me in the’whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
On Christ, the Solid Rock, I stand
All other ground is sinking sand.

IV. You need to know that death doesn’t have the final word, Jesus does!

1 Corinthians 15:53–57 ESV
53 For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. 54 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55 “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:54–57 ESV
54 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55 “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
