Figure It Out for Yourself!

Have you ever had someone shout at you in frustration, “Figure it out for yourself”? It’s a pretty discouraging experience because you’ve gone to that person not knowing what to do in a situation that is pretty important. You’re looking for direction, but the person you’ve gone to doesn’t have a clue of what you should do and isn’t interested in putting any time or effort into helping you. So, at a loss of what to do they say something to the effect of, “Look, it’s your problem. Don’t bother me with it. Go figure it out for yourself!” We leave feeling not only even more uncertain as to what to do, but also rejected.

What if God just put a big sign in the sky for all people to see, “Figure it out for yourselves”? What if God were silent, silent about himself and us? How would we know about right and wrong? Where would we get answers to questions like, “Why was I born? What’s the point of my life? How am I supposed to live?”

The person of Jesus Christ is God’s resounding answer to our deepest questions about life. He has not been silent. He has not cast us aside to figure things out for ourselves. Instead, he himself came to this world not only to speak to us, but to figure everything out for us.

If you’re having trouble making sense of life, join us for one of our services this weekend. God is not silent. He has spoken. And what a message it is!
