How are we to respond when the world seems to be on a collision course with the gospel? In truth, the gospel has always been on conflict with the world. The collision has always been heading toward us. We just have to prepare for the impact.
Our journey to the heart of God has been illuminating. We have seen His heart for the hurting, for the outcasts, for the doubters, and for the faithful that need encouragement. Now, we see where the journey ends; at a cross where Jesus will die for our sins.
Doubt is universal, even among the most solid of Christians. However, our God has a heart for doubters.
Even the coolest of cool kids will experience pain. They will experience hurt. No one is immune to it, and we all have to deal with it. Thankfully, our God has a heart for the hurting.
