Vijay concludes his series on the 7 signs of John's Gospel this morning with the Raising of Lazarus (John 11.1-44). In today's sermon, he asks the difficult question: how do we as Christians deal with what sometimes seems like the silence of an all-powerful and all-good God in the face of human suffering, evil and death. Whatever the answer may look like or however the difficulties of this problem might be reconciled, the believer is asked to trust the love of Christ. There are ultimate answers that we may find difficult to understand, but Jesus shows enough of his love to sustain us while we grapple faithfully with the problem of suffering and death.
