Doubt Sermon Series
Many great people in the Old Testament (the first part of the Bible) had hard times. There were times when there was spiritual darkness in their lives. They had doubts. They felt desperate. So, their spiritual experience was not always easy. This fact should encourage us all. The same thing happens at some time to most believers today. They, too, have periods of spiritual darkness. Things happen that challenge our faith. Questions arise and cause us to wrestle with what we believe. Troubles may come and cause us to doubt in God. There are a number of characters in the bible who doubted in God.
Wrestling with faith is not a sign of weakness, but evidence of our humanity. We are challenged to believe in God when we face difficult situations which we do not know how to solve. Often when people doubt, they even stop coming to places of worship. Join us as we look at the stories of these Biblical Characters:
Mary – 8 August
Elijah – 15 August
John the Baptist – 22 August
Jeremiah – 29 August
Jonah – 5 September
Thomas – 12 September
Let them help us find responses to our doubts.
We may have forgotten a great promise of God, or things which helped us in the past. In John Wesley’s words, we know that God himself is with us. When we have doubts, we should trust God completely, whatever our feelings may be.
