Why Suffering Exists

As we study through the book of Job, we learn that suffering exists for many reasons and none of which are reasons that Job suffers.

  • Suffering exists because sin exists (Romans 5:12). This is not the Garden of Eden. This is a cursed creation. This is not heaven. We long for the new heaven and the new earth.
  • Suffering exists to mature God’s children (James 1:2-4).
  • Suffering exists that God’s works might be displayed (John 9:3).
  • Suffering exists to bring glory to God (John 11:4).
  • Suffering exists because Christ experienced suffering (Matthew 10:24).
  • Suffering exists because all who live godly experience suffering (2 Timothy 3:12).
