Sermon for May 12th, 2019
Beyond the Tomb
During this series we want to look at the appearances Jesus made to people after the resurrection. We will find that even today we experience some of the same emotions and feelings. Because Jesus rose from the dead our eternity has been changed. Every day we can be reminded that the story is never over, and Jesus has something to say about our lives.
Week 3- Dismantling Our Doubt
Today we see the disciple who gets the wonderful nickname that has unfortunately stuck to him; Doubting Thomas. Doubt is normal. But every doubt is based on a leap of faith. Thomas believed that no one could come back from the dead because he has never seen it. The reason he couldn’t believe it was because he was holding on to another opposing belief. A person’s faith can collapse almost overnight if they have failed over the years to listen patiently to their own doubts, which should only be discarded after long reflection. We should look at our doubts, face them, and allow God to speak into them.
Listen to the message and be challenged by God’s Word.
