If we accept that the results of evil–pain, suffering and death–are not from God, yet He allows them, then we must assume that they play a part in His plan. And since we know that His plan is one of eternal redemption–that the world will be saved–then it’s safe to say that pain must play a role in our personal redemption. Pain indeed has a purpose.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous–how well I know it.
The New Living Translation
