Everywhere we look, we see evidence of a world that is coming apart at the seams. From natural disasters, humanitarian crises, countries at war, and ideological conflicts, humanity is drowning in a sea of chaos. People are anxious, fearful and searching for hope in the darkness.
But… we who follow Jesus, belong to a sovereign God, who tells us in His word time and time again to fear not.
In a world like ours, is that even possible?
It’s no wonder that as we look around our world, scroll through social media, and listen to the news, that so many of people are struggling with uncertainty and fear about the future. Things are very dark in our world and just seem to be getting darker. Is there any hope to hold onto?
Over the next couple of weeks, we’re going to dig beneath the headlines and take a deeper look at what is really going on in our world and where we can find a hope that can conquer every fear.
The dark can be a scary place. But there is both Light and Hope available for you. I hope you’ll join us this Sunday.
This Sunday, we’re continuing our look beneath the subject lines and rhetoric that fills our newsfeeds, to see what God’s Word has to say about the things happening in our world. We’re looking to gain a firmer grasp on what we can know for sure, and what we must confidently entrust to the sovereignty of God. Because in the midst of the chaos, one thing is certain: it is very easy to become distracted by the to-do lists, the deadlines, disappointments or even our own desires, and miss what God is doing around us or even in us.
In the midst of an incredibly busy and often distressing world, it’s important that we know what matters most and how to keep it in clear view. Some things are too important to miss. Let’s make sure we don’t.
