Deliverance from Our Second Guessing

 

Part 3

"Deliverance from Our Second-guessing"

John 20:19-31

Deliverance from second-guessing the claims of Jesus demands that we:

1.      DEVELOP A RELATIONSHIP WITH A DISCIPLE WHO DOUBTED.

THOMAS WAS:

  • A FISHERMAN (John 21:1-3)
  • A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST (Luke 6:13-16)
  • FOCUSED ON FINDING ANSWERS (John 14:5)

 2.      DEFEND AGAINST THE RISKS SURROUNDING THE DOWNWARD OF SPIRAL DOUBT.

DOUBT LEADS US DOWN THE PATH OF:

  • DESERTION (v.19)
  • DELAY (v. 24)
  • DENIAL (v.25a)
  • DEMAND (v.25b)

3.      DEEPEN OUR RESOLVE TO DISARM THE DOUBTS OF LIFE.

DOUBT IS DISARMED BY:

  • DRAWING CLOSE TO JESUS (v.26)
  • BELIEVING THE DEMONSTRATIONS GIVEN TO US. (v. 27)
  • DECLARING OUR ALLEGIANCE TO GOD. (vv. 28-29)
  • DEVOTING OURSELVES TO THE WORD OF GOD. (vv. 30-31)
