A Storm is Coming - Message Minute
Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bringing your message minute.
How do storms make you feel? In your mind picture the bright flash of lightning, hear the rumbling crashing thunder, feel the air, the ground, your body shake, smell the hard rain coming. Does the thought of a coming storm scare you?
Last night, a good friend texted me these words, "A storm is coming…" in reference to a tough situation I’ll have to handle soon. The truth is, Jesus never promised us a life without storms. He even told his closest friends, those twelve disciples, this statement, "In this world you WILL have trouble."
But here's what the Master Teacher said, in the context around His troubling statement.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” - John 16:33
"Have peace, Take heart, Jesus has overcome the world."
Today, there may be a storm coming that fills you with fear and trepidation, but make an effort to have faith in Jesus, follow His teachings, and have peace, knowing that He has overcome the world. You'll be glad you did.
