When talking about the Christian faith it is very common to have doubts. Many people think that doubts are bad in their faith. The reality is that our doubts can strengthen our faith or weaken our faith. When dealing with doubt, doubts are not equal.
This coming Sunday we are starting a new series called Dealing With Doubt. We want people to be able to better understand doubt, where it comes from and how to overcome it. We want people to be able to resolve their doubts by the work of the Holy Spirit and by practically working through their doubts. It is our desire that people feel empowered and equipped to identify and process through any doubts that might arise.
Over the next three weeks we will be defining doubt, we will be sharing ways that can help us overcome our doubts, and we will be talking about when all else fails how can we embrace the unknown. The reality is that as followers of Christ we all have beliefs. Our beliefs are only as strong as our faith. Your beliefs will be tested by doubts. Which leaves us with the question, “Are you prepared and will your faith make it through the trial?”
If you have followed Christ for any length of time you will know that it is anything but easy. We hope that this new series will help shed some light on dealing with some real-life difficulties when dealing with questions of faith.
We hope to see you on Sunday!
