What do you do when you pour out your heart to God in prayer, but you hear nothing in response? Dr. Mark Foster shares about when God's answer to prayer is "Yes," "No," and "Not Yet," and he talks with Acts 2 member Cathy Meyer about her experience with God through struggle and loss.
We all go through times when God's voice seems silent. Some have called it "the dark night of the soul." In the Bible, we read about people who also went through these dark nights. However, as Christians, we can confidently know that darkness is not the end of our story, and resurrection is coming!
God is more ready to talk to you than you are ready to listen. You can learn to hear the direct, loving, weighty voice of God through scripture. Over thousands of years, God’s voice is consistent. Pastor Mark shows us how we can know God’s voice today.
It can be difficult to know what God sounds like. Through sharing his personal experience of hearing God, Pastor Andy encourages us not only to listen, but to obey God’s voice as well.

God's voice can be difficult to hear, as the boy Samuel found out. However, Samuel was able to discern God's voice through the help of his mentor Eli and through praying this prayer: "Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening." Often, the first step needed to hear God's voice is simply to listen.

On Friday, Jesus was crucified, and his followers were overcome with pain. On Saturday, they waited, and nothing made sense. But on Sunday, Jesus rose from the dead, and they experienced deliverance. Whether you find yourself in a time of waiting or pain, Easter means that Jesus still delivers us from death to life, hope, and love.

He IS Risen

When Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday, it wasn't just one glorious moment. It was the culmination of God's saving work that began with the creation of the universe, and it's the source of our hope for the future and the beginning of God's new creation when all things will be made right.
Sloth is painful to watch, but easy to fall into. When we give in to sloth, we become indifferent to those around us. But throughout his life, Jesus models a better way—the way of diligence.

While it's easy to see greed as a temptation only for the very rich, the desire for more affects all of us. Instead of accumulating as much as possible and holding on for dear life, though, Jesus teaches that generosity sets us free from greed and lets us live lives of blessing for others.
Greed affects us more than we like to admit. This week we learn how to apply generosity to our lives and find joy even with less stuff.
Whether it's food, shopping, or scrolling on our phones, we all struggle with wanting more than is good for us, and the excess leads to ruin. But God desires our freedom, and through the virtue of temperance, helps us trust that Jesus is enough. Find sermon notes and more at https://acts2umc.org/sermons/gluttony-and-temperance/.
