Our latest sermon recording is up.
When the man took his son to see Jesus, he wasn't sure if Jesus could help him. Jesus said, "Anything is possible for him who believes." The man replied, "I believe, help my unbelief."
Doesn't that sentence summarize the Christian struggle in faith. I believe, help my unbelief. We know God's promises, but doubt creeps into our hearts when we face terrible circumstances. How does God answer it? The same way that Jesus answers the man, with healing.
Jesus does it, however, in the same ways he heals us all our lives. He does it through his word and sacraments. He strengthens us by repeating his promises through his word. He unites with us by his body and blood. He comforts us by sending the Holy Spirit to us.
No matter what you face, God has an answer for our doubt so we can rest only in him. He gives us the peace that passes all understanding.
