Building Faith that endures the storm
Storms. Everybody goes through them. The Bible tells you it’s coming, but regardless of whether you expect it, the storm claims more Christian casualties than all evil dictators combined.
No matter how strong you think you are, the storm designed for you will rock you to your core – casting doubt on everything you say you believe. When storm came to the 12 disciples, they cried, “Master, carest thou not that we perish?” The storm caused the men who had given their life to follow the Messiah to not believe He could save them; even more, they didn’t believe He even cared!! Jesus pointed to the heart of the issue, “How is it that ye have no faith?”
The question is not “Will a storm come?” but “Will your faith endure?” Will your disciples’ faith endure? And what about your kids’ faith – will it endure? Thankfully, God tells us how to build a faith that will endure the storm. In this 4-week study of 1 Thessalonians 3, you’ll learn how to prepare yourself and those you lead for the storm.
