Midnight in Phillipi



So many stories sound like this, “I was a person of God, I heard the messages and sang the songs, and then life happened; the night grew dark, and when I couldn’t see what God was doing, I swore never to darken the door of the Church again.”

As we kick-off our new series, EVEN THOUGH, Louie Giglio has a goal for all of us: That we would become a people who move from hearing about God to a people who are in a relationship with the Almighty that emblazons us with a Heaven-born confidence that anchors our lives in the mighty gale, and radiates hope in the darkest nights.

That’s Defiant Faith.

Key Takeaway

In Acts 16, Paul demonstrates perfectly what it is to have defiant faith in the darkest night. Louie encourages us to model his faith by seeking to understand who God is by having a deep relationship with the Lord almighty, even when life takes a detour, and we find ourselves in a dark place.
