Have you ever been confident about something (like, really confident) only to find out later that you were really wrong? It happens! We're all bound to get things wrong once in a while, but when our eyes are opened to the truth, what matters is that we change our minds. But when it comes to Jesus, it's not
always easy to know what the truth is or how to share that truth with others. What do we do with all of the big questions that hard to answer? Is Jesus still trustworthy even when His followers mess up or life gets hard? In this 4-week series, Look and See, God invites us to look, and then see, that Jesus is someone we can believe in, Jesus teaches us new things, God can use your story to help others see, and God gives us the strength to keep following Jesus.
Okay, here's the deal. I've been a Christian for a while now, but when I first started to believe, I had no idea what it meant to follow Jesus. I thought trusting Jesus meant God was going to solve all my problems and that Jesus was going to fill my heart with happiness and peace and love all the time! No. That's not how this works. It turns out, following Jesus is actually really hard sometimes. In the book of Hebrews (that's in the Bible), following Jesus is compared to running a race. If you've ever run a marathon, you know those are hard. You keep chasing that finish line because you know it's going to be worth it in the end, but — wow, it's not easy. Whether you've been following Jesus for a while or you'll still trying to decide what you believe, let me say this: yes, it's hard sometimes. But yes, it's worth it. And along the way, God gives us the strength to keep following Jesus.
Join us as we study from the Word of God to grow as the "sons and daughters of God." We also will take time out for some fun and games, relaxing and connecting with each other. See ya' there!!
