Big Idea of the Series: This four-week series addresses seasons when God seems silent or far away. What are Christians supposed to do during a dark night of the soul? When Christians feel far from God, we can survive periods of God’s silence by remembering his faithfulness in the past, relying on Jesus’s example, repenting for any sin that could be causing separation, and rejoicing by faith in God’s promise to draw near to those who draw near to him.
Week 4 Topic: Suffering, God’s nearness, Worship
Big idea of the message: When God seems silent or far away, we must rejoice in his promise to draw near to those who draw near to him.
Application point: We can draw near to God by continuing to come into his presence in worship by faith, even when we feel like nothing is happening.
