I hope to begin posting an outline for my morning sermon ahead of time. Here is the outline for 1/30/11 from our series in John, “That You Might Believe.”“Where’s Jesus in the Stormy Darkness?” John 6:15-21 (see also , Matthew 14:22-33 & Mark 6:45-52)
Main Point: We have Jesus’ protection and provision even when we are struggling and feel alone.
