The Christian gospel always calls for and expects a response from those who hear it. Thus, Jesus himself preached, “Repent and believe the good news!” (Mark1:15). Paul declared to everyone to whom he preached, “Turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus” (Acts 20:21). Through faith, sinners receive Jesus’ sacrificial death for the forgiveness of our sins.
In this session, we will talk about:
what it means to have faith in Jesus;
how God preserves our faith; and
how to persevere in view of personal tragedy and loss.
