Worth the Cost

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
    and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
    for those who love him.” –I Corinthians 2:9b (NLT)

I’ve been thinking (that’s dangerous I know). One of the things I’ve heard people say over the years is “how could a loving, all powerful God create a world that produces so much suffering and pure evil?” For some, it is given as their reason for rejecting the idea of God at all.

Let’s assume, for the sake of argument, that God, the God spoken of in the Bible does exist. Since God, loving, powerful, and all knowing created a world which is like this. What purpose, outcome is God planning, working toward that would be worth the cost of all the pain, suffering and evil allowed in God’s creation? Ultimately it cost the death of God’s own son, Jesus. I cannot image. But it must be something so great and wonderful that it is worth the cost.
