It’s not getting any easier to be a believer in this fallen world. There’s a growing instability in almost every area where we’d normally find security. We have plenty of reasons for our hearts to be troubled.

And yet, Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled…” But how? Especially given our current circumstances? The answer is found in His faithfulness—the great and precious promises and prophecies He has given us. The more we look at God’s track record of faithfulness, the more reason we have to hope.

This hope sustains us and allows us to move forward knowing that God hold the future in His hand. We can face the future with confidence and boldness knowing that He is already there. 

This past Sunday, we considered the prophecies and the promises God has given us so that our hearts won’t be troubled. Listen to our study from John 14:1-6 and remember His great and precious promises—fulfilled and yet to come to pass.

Vision Sunday

THIS SUNDAY (January 5th)

At the beginning of each year, we consider the vision, purpose, and practice of our fellowship—why do we do what we do? Why do we invest in each other and encourage one another to persevere in following Jesus? Why do we tell others about the goodness and faithfulness and love of God and encourage them to do the same? There is a reason—and it is important. So important, it’s worth remembering year after year after year.

Join us for worship at 10am THIS Sunday (1/5/20) as we review the vision, purpose, and practice of our fellowship.

You can read through the Bible in 2020!

All you need is your Bible and two bookmarks. No matter how long it has been since you’ve read, just pick up where you left off and read three chapters from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament. With this reading rhythm five days a week, you will work your way through the Bible in a year (apart from Psalms & Proverbs). After you’ve read the daily reading, listen to Pastor Dominic share insights and encouragements in a daily podcast.

Be Encouraged

“Let not your heart be troubled…”
–John 14:1-6

What troubles your heart today? Maybe it’s current events. Maybe it’s past or present hurts that come from living in an imperfect world with death, disease, and disappointment. Or maybe it’s the anticipation of difficult days ahead.

Whatever the burden you’re carrying, consider the words of Jesus: “Let not your heart be troubled…” But how? Doesn’t Jesus know what we’re going through? Doesn’t He see what’s going on? Doesn’t He care?

YES! He knows. He sees. He cares. And it’s because He knows all, sees all, and cares about all the details of your life that He gives you the key for settling a troubled heart—“…you believe in God, believe also in Me.”

Because of His faithfulness, we can choose to believe Him. You have the ability to set your troubled heart at rest by believing in God. You see, belief isn’t just storing information in your brain. It’s a choice that you can make every day—a choice that leads to hope and a settled heart. 

God makes that choice a little easier for you because of who He is, what He has said, and what He has done. You have the word of the prophets made more certain on this side of their exact fulfillment. Even more, you have the words of Jesus Himself—words of hope and a promise to return to bring you to the place He has prepared for you so you can be with Him forever! 

“Let not your heart be troubled,”
His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth
But one step I may see:
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.
