What Now?

In the course of our "What Now?" series, we have spent the past 6 weeks looking at how the disciples navigated the days and weeks following Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. As they awaited the promised Holy Spirit, they struggled with confusion, doubt, discouragement, fear, disillusionment – all things that we can identify with as we follow a God we can’t see. Our series culminates this Sunday with the Holy Spirit being poured out on all the believers gathered in Jerusalem. What Jesus promised them had occurred! And it was so amazing it drew a crowd! A crowd of people from all over the known world were exposed to the most incredible event that humanity has known: the outpouring of the 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.
