Overcoming adversity - part 4. The power of forgiveness is something that we talk a lot about in the Christian church. Christ forgave us, so we can and should forgive others. And it is no coincidence that Jesus talks about forgiveness at the end of our mini-series on Overcoming Adversity.
Overcoming adversity - part 3. When it comes to overcoming adversity, we often find ourselves praying and asking God for help. But does that make sense? Does God even care about my prayers? Does He even listen? And if He hears me - will he actually do anything? This week we take a look at what Jesus says about prayer, and how we can know what God's plan for our lives is.
We all have obstacles and adversity to deal with - heck, we are in the middle of a pandemic that is affecting us all. So how to do we overcome such things? Well, the standard answer is just to think positively, be optimistic, see the glass as half full..but does that really work? Or does Jesus have some other advice to give us?
