In today’s world, our personal battles against sickness, broken relationships, sin and temptation seem endless. The church is in battle against the world’s sinful, increasingly anti-Christian ideology and the woes of this very complicated, lost world. These things can cause us as believers to despair. Maybe we think the best way to handle these issues as if these things don’t exist. However, we walk in the constant hidden fear that one day that denial will catch up with us. We still laugh, smile, and love but at the same time we constantly feel the heaviness of life nipping at our heels.
Because of all these issues, we are constantly hearing one heavy sermon after another. Or we may be inundated with sermons of fluff which seem out of touch with reality.
In this Sunday's message, we are going to attempt to walk that fine line of acknowledging the heaviness of our times while at the same time taking a deep breath and allowing the Lord to bring refreshment and restored hope to our soul.
