WEEK 6 - Onward to Jerusalem

If you watch enough TV preachers or read enough religious Facebook posts you might get the idea that being a Christian is an insurance policy against bad things happening to you. You might even get the impression that great things are owed you because of your faith. However, that is not what the Bible promises and it is not what Messiah has experienced. Messiah has had many easy years but there have also been many tough years. There have been years of plenty but there have been years of want. There have been years when the pews were packed and there have been years when you could throw a stone and not hit anyone… So which is the real church; the one where everything is rosy for those who believe or the one where the trials of this life are very real but they are faced with God’s presence and strength?

If we were to delve way back into our history and look at the book of Acts we would see that Paul and the other disciples faced all sorts of hardships. Their faith did not ensure a life of luxury and success. They did have successes, but as we will see, they also had times when whole towns rioted against them. The key for them, as it has been for Messiah, is that through the highs and the lows, our eyes are always looking to the Savior who is with us and will see us through.
