Heaven… Is It Ever Okay To Be Mad At God?

Our topic this for this sermon may seem a bit out of theme, but it really isn’t. Why? Because it seems that much of our struggle with faith comes directly from not having an adequate perspective about the “other side” of eternal life. As Paul describes it in 1 Corinthians 13:12:

We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing Him directly just as He knows us!  (1 Corinthians 13:12 TM)

Most of us have been mad at God at one point or another. Something went wrong. Prayers seemed to go unanswered. You became convinced that God didn’t really care, or even notice that His children were hurting, badly. We’re trying to see God’s side, but we just can’t. We want to believe that God loves us. We want to believe that God cares. But it’s hard to see. And it’s so easy to turn on our faith and assume that God has failed us.

Here’s the question… Would it help just a little if God would choose to give us just a little glimpse… just a little peak on the other side of the curtain?
