Are you a pessimist or an optimist? Is the glass half empty or half full? I'm glad Jesus chose both kinds of people when He chose the disciples. This weekend we are going to be looking at the encounter "doubting Thomas" had with Jesus, one week after the resurrection (John 20). The title of my message is "Staying Confident in a Pessimistic World." This message is important because we all struggle with doubts. Yes, we might "believe," but there are times when our behavior expresses more confidence in ourselves than it does in God. A growing confidence in God is one of the characteristics of a growing life.
•Not a state of being but a state of doing
•Not about how you think but how you act
•Not intellectual its behavioral
I look forward to talking with you about this over the weekend.
Podcast and notes will be posted...
Read John 20 to get a "head start".
