A Gift from God we did not deserve.

SERMON NOTES

 

CHARIS (GRACE): Getting what you don't deserve

Doubt: a feeling of uncertainty or a lack of conviction

MAIN IDEA: “Doubt isn't a sign of weakness, doubt is a sign of our humanity. Jesus gracious receives us in the midst of doubts."

 

THREE THINGS WE MUST UNDERSTAND ABOUT DOUBT:

1) EVEN GODLY PEOPLE HAVE DOUBT

Matthew 11:1-3

Reasons for doubt:

1- Perception didn't match his reality.

2- Feelings dictated his experience

2) GODLY PEOPLE SEEK THE SOURCE FOR ANSWERS

Matthew 11:2-3

"Our goal isn't to get people into a building... our goal is to get people to Jesus."

3) JESUS' RESPONSE WILL ALWAYS BE IN GRACE AND TRUTH

Matthew 11:4-11

Jesus response to John was pointing him to Scripture.

- Isaiah 29:18

- Isaiah 35:5-6
