Mark Sayers from RED Church provides a timely message in preparation for Easter. Faith is not about living an easy life, but about being faithful in all situations. God is not absent when we cannot feel Him — painful and difficult times are often a sign of spiritual maturity because God is shaping us in His image. We are more than our desires and emotions — allow Lent (the period preceding Easter) to become a pregnant pause.
This talk is on, well, faith!
I love this talk… Paul shares powerful, personal stories of faith in action in the context of mission. His stories can inspire us practically as we learn to listen to God’s voice and step out in obedience to respond.
This is an old favourite talk of mine by Michael Frost (originally recorded on tape in the 1990’s!) He explains that we need to be willing to lose our first-born faith in order to gain a more robust, second-born faith.
Look out for the marbles analogy… it’s brilliant!
