“The Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.” There is a Spirit within that God gives. When we rely on that “wind within” we have a power “greater than ourselves”. This wisdom is the heart of the twelve-step program, and the heart of endurance and discipline for the Christian.
Sermon by: Dr. John (Jack) M. Stephenson
2 Timothy 1:7
“For we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose”. On this Sunday we will strengthen our faith that it will all work out. Detours are hard. Life doesn’t go how we planned or hoped or dreamed. But it does go. And…. It works out.

This sermon could easily be called “The obstacle is the Way” or “The myth of easy Obedience”. Mary says to the angel “Let it be with me according to your word”. Her son, raised by her said, “Nevertheless” to God. Facing Adversity because it is the right thing is different. Purposeless hard is different than hard for a purpose.
