Sunday 01.03.16 (battling despair)

This Sunday we’ll take a look at Job 19:25-27 and ways that we can battle the darkness of despair by developing a forward-looking faith. Then in the evening, we’ll start a 4-week video study based on Eric Metaxas’ Dietrich Bonhoeffer biography–a story of great faithfulness to Jesus in the face of the great evil of Nazi Germany. Hope to see you there!

Sermon Notes
Battling Despair with a Forward-Looking Faith ~ Job 19:25-27

  • Whenever in the midst of despair or depression, see a doctor–there could be a physical issue clouding your ability to clearly see Jesus
  • Then, battle the despair by developing a forward-looking faith:
    • Build your relationship with God before darkness strikes (19:25)
    • Long to experience God more fully (19:26-27)
    • Be assured of better days to come (19:25-26)
