Psalm 115:3; Exodus 32:9-10; Exodus 32:14
Scripture Text: Luke 7:19-23
19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
20 When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.
22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
The Virus of Doubt
Introduction: Seems we are living in a time with so many problems--The economy--Not enough money--some have too much some not enough. Not enough time in the day--some have too much time some not enough. Some eat too much--some to little. Some work too much--some not enough. Seems as if there are so many diseases--The list could go on & on.
Even among Christians we deal with many things --
discouragement, confusion, commitment--trust--faithfulness etc. Perhaps one of the biggest that Christians have to deal with is the Virus of DOUBT.
The world is dealing with an enemy called the corona virus COVID-19. Many are concerned & confused. Business closed. People losing jobs. Over 26 million lost jobs. Deaths according to CDC as of April 24, 2020, 50,000 plus. There are so many ideas about what is happening & what will happen.
The chances are that every once in a while you're going to come down with some questions, some issues, some uncertainties, some doubts. And, by the way, that's not just a Christian experience; doubt is a human experience that's common across the board. Even atheists doubt their position from time to time.
The problem is that some Christians leave their doubt untreated because they don't want to admit they have it. They erroneously think that to be a real Christian, you must have absolute certainty about everything regarding the faith, and so they're afraid to admit it when doubt starts eating away at them.
F in faith stands for this step: Find the root of your doubt.
A in faith stands for the next step: "Ask God and others for help."
I in Faith stands for this advice: "Identify a course of treatment."
T stands for a preventative measure: "Take care of your spiritual health."
H in faith stands for this:: "Hold your remaining questions for now."
Use your doubt as the motivation to grow stronger in your faith
than you ever were.
