“Believe me,” said Jesus, “I am who I am long before Abraham was anything.” – John 8:58

How would you react? What if you’re a person who does not have the slightest belief in God, then one day…there He is…how would you react?

Over the years, I’ve heard people say: “If God was real, He wouldn’t let…” then they run off a list of horrible things that happen in the world, including things that happened to them. God didn’t save them, or any of us, from such pain.

Then, one day, here we are, face to face, practically blinded by light and all we can think of is what He didn’t do. How many questions do we ask? How many things do we not understand? How many things will we accuse Him of?

I feel like this scene captures that moment, the frustration, the disappointment, the questions, all blurted out at one time. And God is strong enough to take it.
