No Turning Back

What Now?

We have spent the past several weeks exploring the authentic questions, feelings and fears that the disciples wrestled with after Jesus' resurrection. Even in His presence, they found themselves disoriented, disillusioned, doubting and full of grief. He met them in each of these places and restored vision, courage, freedom and faith. After Jesus' ascension, we see the fruit of His ministry displayed clearly through the disciples. Instead of running back into hiding, they acted in resolute faith and were fervent in prayer (Acts 1:14). Instead of turning back, they pressed forward and demonstrated a genuine trust in the promise of Jesus for the coming Holy Spirit.

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.
