John 20; Luke 7; 1 Corinthians 13:12
Doubt leads to questions, which leads to answers, which leads to stronger faith.
When we find answers to our questions created by doubt – then doubt has done its job!
Three Truths about Doubt
- Doubt is the opposite of certainty.
- Doubt is forgivable.
- Doubt is healthy.
Three things that cause us to doubt:
- Our minds
- Our emotions
- Our will
How can we grow through our doubts?
F – Find the root of our doubt
A – Ask God and others for help
I – Identify a way to overcome
T – Take care of our spiritual health
H – Hold our remaining questions in tension
Main Point: We don’t have to be afraid of questions, because God isn’t. We don’t have to be embarrassed to bring them up, even at church…that is why we are here!
