Jesus predicted that he would start a gathering, a movement . . . what we call church. And that church would spread all over the earth and outlast the Roman Empire. It would change the world. His prediction must have sounded outlandish to even his closest followers. But here we are, two thousand years later, and the Roman Empire exists only in history books, while Jesus’ gathering is still going strong. The church is the hope of the world because the church is the vehicle by which God is bringing the solution to mankind’s greatest problems: sin, sorrow, and death.
Jesus came that we might discover “life to the full,” while the enemy plots to steal, kill, and destroy. Many often miss out on this abundant joy available to them due to “fatal distractions.” It's much easier for the enemy to keep us distracted than it is for him to take us out. In this series, we’ll explore both the implications and antidotes of three major types of distractions: fog, fires, and fear.
