Victory News – Don’t Be Afraid; Just Believe!

Victory News – Don’t Be Afraid; Just Believe!

Dear Friends,

What does despair look like? Does God care when you feel on the brink of despair? As we continue our “Who is This Man?” sermon series this Sunday we are going to explore a wonderfully comforting account from Luke chapter 8, two interwoven stories that shed light not only on who Jesus is, but faith’s response to a Savior who says, “Don’t be afraid; just believe” (Luke 8:50).

(“Jesus is the man who won’t go away, because his words won’t go away.” ICYMI watch my sermon based on John 7 from last Sunday.)
