Chestnut Ridge Church
Seven - Part 7
One of Jesus’ closest friends, John, witnessed Jesus perform dozens, if not hundreds, of miracles. When he penned the Gospel of John, he only chose seven of them to highlight who Jesus was (and is!) and the difference he can make in our lives. Join us for this new series as we focus on how amazing Jesus is, and consider what he is capable of in our lives.

We have all experienced the sinking feeling associated with being lost. It’s a scary feeling. We reach out for something familiar or a sign to point the way. Often, it’s only when we realize we are lost that we are willing to ask for help. Jesus described our spiritual condition apart from him as being lost. This Easter, we will explore how Jesus is the destination for the lost.

Seven - Part 7 [March 25, 2018] Tim Haring

Problem: Sometimes we give into hopelessness

Solution: We can trust Jesus no matter how hopeless our circumstances



We can trust Jesus no matter how hopeless our circumstances
If Jesus Christ can do nothing about death, then whatever else He can do amounts to nothing.

We can trust Jesus no matter how hopeless our circumstances
We can trust Jesus no matter how hopeless our circumstances
We can trust Jesus no matter how hopeless our circumstances
As with many people today, human problems crowd out the sense of the divine presence, and as a result hopelessness can reign even in the company of God’s people.[1]
