All of us experience dark moments. Sometimes they last an evening, for others, decades. Times where we wrestle, we doubt, we cry out to God, we wonder if he is there, we wonder if anyone is with us. We try to control life, we try to control what others do, we try to control what we do. And all the while, we get deeper and deeper into despair, anger, pain and hurt.
Maybe that is you right now, or recently, or someone you know. What do you do? Does the Bible have anything to say about that?
Glad you asked?
This week, as we continue our series The Story of God we will look at a man, Jacob and how he wrestled with God. It is a powerful, short story in Genesis 32 that will show us why we wrestle, why we doubt, what is the heart of the pain many of us feel and walk around with, but more than that. It will show us the way forward and how the gospel frees us from those doubts, that pain and hurt and ultimately, the desire to be in control of all things.
On top of that, we will be celebrating baptism together as a community. I love hearing the stories of how the gospel has changed lives and seeing Revolutionaries take that step and public declare their faith in Jesus and the change the gospel has made in their life. If you’d like to be baptized this week but haven’t signed up yet, email Chuck Tommervik and we will get you the information you need.
So, do whatever you have to do to be at Revolution this week (and bring someone with you, you never know how a simple invite can make an eternal difference). An easy way to invite someone is to send them an e-vite.
Remember, we meet at 4:15 & 6pm at 6620 E 22nd St.
See you Saturday.
