In recent years, there has been a movement of people away from Christianity to a path toward unbelief. This shift is called Deconstruction which is defined as the process of dissecting and often rejecting the beliefs that you once held true. Like taking a building apart section by section, deconstructing is taking apart your faith to examine it, piece by piece, to see if those beliefs are worthy of your trust.
Here are some links Pastor Chuck has mentioned as you dive deeper and study further as we continue our sermon series Under Construction: Building Strong Faith in the Face of Doubt.
WEEK 1: Believe in Something
It’s ok to have doubts, ok to pull apart your faith and examine it; but it’s important you are able to scrutinize what you believe under the magnification of absolute truth. Absolute truth is what God says. CLICK HERE for resources for doing a deeper dive on the realiabllity of Scripture.
Our faith is built by what God says. That’s one of the reasons we methodically teach you to use a Bible reading plan is so that you can put yourself in a position to hear routinely what God has to say to you. CLICK HERE for our Listening Plan and the SOAP resources.
WEEK 2: Believe on Something
“So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 2 Corinthians 5:20
A vision for how that ambassadorship can be honored:
- Praying for people who have not found the way of Jesus.
- Support and serve the work of the church in this mission.
- Have gospel conversations. CLICK HERE for a tool to share the gospel.
WEEK 3: Believe for Something
One of the ways to learn to ask in faith is drawing on Scripture. Praying Scripture is a way for us to ask in faith. CLICK HERE for some Bible verses that are helpful to pray back to God when asking in faith for something bold and specific.
