Intimacy With An Invisible God

What Now?

This Sunday we continue our "What Now?" series as we consider what Jesus’ followers experienced during the seven weeks between Christ’s resurrection and Pentecost. This week we’ll look specifically at Luke’s story of a man named Cleopas. He and his friend were surprised by an encounter with a “disguised” Jesus on their walk home. The most obvious take away of this story is the encouragement that God is present with us, speaking to us, even when we are most unaware. As you mediate on the following Scriptures and questions, allow God to personally reveal himself to you. Invite God to expand your understanding of His presence and desire to be with you...and with you for a purpose.

From Series: "What Now?"

"Jesus was no longer in the tomb! He had been resurrected! And they all lived happily ever after." But wait....wasn't there a time between His resurrection and when Jesus actually appeared to the disciples again? Wasn't there a time of unsettling inactivity of Jesus' presence; a time of screaming silence; a time when perhaps the disciples wondered if the One they had believed in & followed had been the world's greatest con man? What if He didn't come through? What now?? What must Jesus' disciples have been thinking & feeling during those days: fear? confusion? disillusionment? impatience? grief? hope? Just as Jesus' very own disciples felt all of these things (and more!), so can we, thousands of years later, as we face various unsettling situations in our own lives. Thankfully, the Bible addresses each of these responses...and more! Come join us this Sunday for week #1 of our new sermon series, "What Now?" as we address various reactions to difficult times and what Scripture has to say about each one.
