In our new sermon series “The Greatest Adventure” we will get to know people that have discovered and learned that walking with God is truly an adventure.
But before we go even any further, let me ask you: Do you trust God?
I mean do you really trust God, even with the impossible? In our story today a priest named Zechariah really was confronted with what he thought would be impossible.
>>Some of us are okay with bad news, but what do you do with impossible news? <<
Zechariah & Elisabeth had experienced the tough and painful situation of not having children. For sure they had prayed about it, like Hannah in the Old Testament. For sure they had trusted that God can do the impossible, But over the years it had become somewhat difficult to trust God, or even believe that he can do it. Here is a question:
Do you still trust God? Do you believe that God can change even world events? He did it in the Bible times, but can he still do it today?
Here is the first task for you to be able to explore this somewhat deeper. Ask yourself -and maybe even share with your group- this question: What is your reason for doubting God?
-> Past wounds and disappointments? -> Because it defies logic?
Tell your story, or write it down. What makes it hard to trust God? What made you lose hope?
In your next step ask yourself: If God is still the all-powerful God, and if you still want to trust him, what would it practically look like to CLING to him? What do you need to say to yourself, write to yourself, or be reminded of?
What attribute of God comes to your mind right now? Write that attribute on a piece of paper and look up a Bible verse that proves that this is really an attribute from God.
If you can’t think of an attribute of God can think of a biblical or historical story where God showed himself powerful and trustworthy. Try to remember a story that is similar to your story.
Now, get out a paper and some coloring pencils, and write down the following sentence:
Through the Bible in one Year
Join us in reading through the entire Bible in one year. Each day of this plan guides you through passages from both the Old and New Testaments, allowing you to see connections between the history of our faith, and the fulfillment of God’s redemptive plan. Readings average four chapters in length, so it is posible to do. When you use the YouVersion Bible App, you can even have the app read the Bible text to you – very useful when you are in the car or otherwise occupied with your hand.
All you need to do is click the link to the Bible Plan, which should lead you straight to the Bible app. Your two options are now (1) to read the plan on your own, one day at the time. Or (2) you can make it more fun and rewarding, by sharing the plan with one or more friends, and then even “Talk about it”.
