Getting Through Storms
1. Understand the nature of Storms.
1. Promises in His Word.
2. The Power of His Person.
3. The Presence of Community
2. Recognize our Natural response to Doubt.
We hear so much criticism from skeptics about what they often brand as “secondhand faith.” It is implied that many people believe in God only because of the context of their birth or family or determined conditions.
If the criticism is justified, and undoubtedly it sometimes is, why do we not show the same distrust of secondhand doubt? If it is possible for a person’s belief to be merely an echo of someone else’s faith, are there not hypocrites in doubt also?
—Ravi Zacharias, Jesus among Other Gods (Word, 2000)
