Enough – Easter 2020

by Apr 12, 2020Easter 2020, Sermon

The last week of Jesus’ life began with a parade of celebration and hope. He would be dead by the end of that week. What happened? Even in darkness, God is at work; it just doesn’t feel like it sometimes. And even though there is no darkness in God, He’s never opposed to entering the darkness. God does profound things there. So, don’t instinctively run from the darkness. You might be running from God.
