Grief, pain, hardship and tragedy happen to all of us equally. God gives us all the same opportunity to come to Him through Jesus, His Son. There is a misconception that Christians should be free from pain and suffering. They should have it better than everybody else, and that if they are having problems there must be some deep dark sin in their lives.
God is often judged by the circumstances that affect the lives of His followers. If something bad happens to them, it might appear that God failed or that He is punishing them or teaching them a lesson. The misconception is that Christians are loved by God more and therefore He treats them better and gives them more.
God is frequently viewed as a mere option in our world today. Even some Christians view God's participation in their lives to be necessary only if they are unable to handle something on their own - especially a crisis.
This series of books will visit many of the hard questions asked about God and what it means to be a Christian. Step by Step guidance will help the reader understand how to become a Christian, how to live daily walking and talking with God, and how to understand His will for their lives.
God is very real. He isn't a figment of our imagination. He isn't spooky or strange. He is loving and kind. He is good and loves each and every one of us more than we can even understand.
God doesn't just love Christians. He loves every single person in the world. He doesn't favor Christians. Christians aren't better than everyone else. Knowing and following Jesus Christ doesn't mean a life with no sorrows or pain.
Walking with God is a deliberate action taken by those who want to be born again into life everlasting with Him - it requires only believing in Jesus Christ, asking for His forgiveness of our sins, and learning how to live and walk daily with Him in your heart and at your side.
