What About Israel?
You will encounter events in the world that challenge your faith. There will be times when things don’t happen as you expect and you feel as though your foundations have shattered. I think that may be happening for many across the world today as we watch the Western world move farther and farther from a Biblical worldview. It is frightening and can tempt you to panic or despair or react in anger. These are all challenges to your faith. As such, they offer an opportunity to deepen your faith. This is the kind of thing happening in the 1st century. Events were unfolding that seemed to shock everyone’s expectations. It may have been faith-shattering for some, but the faith that was shattered was in the wrong things. It paved the way to building a better faith.
