I have three children. As any parent knows, that means I get a lot of questions. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot. I think my 6 year old alone asks somewhere between 279 and 336 questions every day. Some are simple like, “are we there yet?” Others are a bit more involved like, “why do I have to eat my vegetables if you don’t?”
Asking questions is not something that we outgrow. If anything, it is something we grow into. I am convinced that as we grow older, the “big” questions that we begin to search out answers for begin to define our lives.
I believe that people are searching for answers to questions of purpose like, “why am I here?” We also deal with questions of reason like, “why do bad things happen.” And we certainly deal with questions of meaning like, “what am I supposed to be doing with my life?”
Some try and ignore these questions. They set them aside like a bill they want to forget. But just like a bill, these questions don’t disappear because you choose to ignore them. At some point and at some level, we all have to deal with these questions.
As a follower of Jesus, I have found that many of the big questions in life find their answer in knowing and following after Jesus Christ. I believe that the answers Jesus brings are for everyone, not just pastors, not just religious people, and certainly not just for people that that think they have answers to life’s questions.
If you are interested in exploring the Christian answer to these questions, Crosspointe Christian Church, in Grosse Pointe Woods is providing a forum for people to explore, ask questions and seek truth. I would like to invite you to join me on the first and third Sunday night of each month, at 6:00PM. We meet at 1175 Lakepointe, on the corner of Lakepointe and Kercheval. We hope that anyone interested in exploring the Christian answer to these questions will consider attending these meetings.
