[ Doing Good to All ] Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.Galatians 6:1 NIV
How do you sense God is with you during deep personal struggle? How do you hold onto faith when faith itself seems lost? Whether in struggle, illness, death, or failure, the presence of pain causes us to question the presence of God. We pray and watch the sky, crossing our spiritual fingers for proof of God’s nearness. And in the silence, we sense something more sinister: perceived abandonment.
How can the sentence “GOD is here” be the key to more happiness, less boredom, more rest, less rush, more love, less drama, more peace, less fear? How should you change your perspective from merely enjoying the good moments in your life to worshiping the God who is right here, right now?
How do you have a conversation with someone who is intent on proving Christianity wrong and won’t accept the Bible as a source of authority?
