Sermon Notes

God wants me to be happy … and I should ALWAYS be happy, too, right?  Well, the bible makes it clear that while God does want us to be happy (in Him), the problem of sin and suffering is very real.  While we may never fully understand the why’s, where’s, or how’s of pain, we can rest on the powerful truth that there can be very great and glorious good that comes out of suffering.
Frankie Valli once famously penned these iconic words: “You’re too good to be true – I can’t take my eyes off you … at long last love has arrived, and I thank God I’m alive.” These words capture that distinct wonder of encountering something SO good that it seems unbelievable, and yet which draws us inexplicably toward it. As we dig into Season One of our Too Good To Be True series, we will discover a reality that is bigger and better than anything we could have hoped to imagine, and is more true than anything else we could ever discover.
