Is it all chance or providence? [Sermon]

Is your life unfolding according to chance? Or is it a part of a bigger plan?

You’re right; it’s a leading question. Jesus teaches us about providence: The invisible hand of God upholding and guiding your specific life. We see the brushstrokes, but God sees the big picture.

It’s easy to believe in providence when you have sunny skies. But is God still upholding and guiding when the skies are grey or dark? The answer is a helpful and victorious one.

This sermon explores John 16:25-33 (and some of Psalm 22) and ponders chance vs. providence.
