As We Gather    When children cannot understand why they can’t do something, the answer is often, “Because I said so.” As they grow up, they may get the answers they seek. Job did not get an answer, but he kept his faith in his Creator. In the Gospel, the disciples cannot understand Jesus’ walking on the sea, but when He is in the boat with them, they confess, “Truly You are the Son of God” (Matthew 14:33). Though we may ask God, “Why?” and Paul in the Epistle says we cannot understand God’s reasons, we can confess with our mouths and believe in Christ’s resurrection. It is an exercise of the faith God has so graciously given us. Why did He come to earth? He came to save us. In great might He destroyed death itself so that we might live with Him forever. That’s why!
