1 Peter 1:1-12 Christians all go through suffering in life. Why is there suffering and how can we get through it? We can learn lots from Apostle Peter – the veteran sufferer shared his secret on how to suffer well.
Daniel 3:19-30 The Israelites ended up wandering around the desert for 40 years because they were driven by risk avoidance. Listen in as we consider how we can make progress in living courageously and therefore productively for God.
John 14:8-14 Even if we haven’t ever spoken the words “I wish I had your faith”, we have probably at least thought them. Perhaps we know a keen Christian who has a peace, a boldness, and a freedom which we find very attractive. But how do we grow in this spiritual certainty?
“Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. If you want something badly enough, and if you work at it hard enough, you can accomplish anything.” This “you can do it” mentality sounds exciting, but what about when the reality check hits us? What about when we can’t live the life we wanted to? And when we can’t keep the plates spinning? And when we can’t keep meeting people’s expectations anymore? What then?
Genesis 8:20-9:17 Is God fundamentally for this world or against it? We tend to assume that God is a detached, benign, old grandfather who will let the world just tick on indefinitely. But how can we be so sure? And don’t biblical stories like Noah’s flood indicate that this world is not as safe a place as we like to think? These are the questions we’ll be considering today as we conclude our series on Noah.
