Preaching on Faith During a Pandemic

Preaching on Faith During a Pandemic

Available on:

Matt Woodley talks to Josh Moody, senior pastor at College Church in Wheaton, Illinois. Josh pointed out how his church had to rethink how they do church in three days. He speaks honestly about how secularism has no answer for the fear and anxiety produced by the coronavirus crisis. Last Sunday he preached a sermon "How Faith Can Free Us From Fear" which streamed on YouTube. Part of that message emphasized how fear of death is what drives all of our fears. He said this crisis is an opportunity to:

  1. Reset our lives around the gospel
  2. Surface what our idols are
  3. For the church to be a witness

You'll also learn about Josh's appreciation for Jonathan Edwards. Check out his book "Jonathan Edwards and Justification" on the subject. You can learn more about Josh's work on his website God Centered Life.

Matt Woodley serves as the Editor for PreachingToday.com and the Pastor of Compassion Ministries at Church of the Resurrection in Wheaton, Illinois. He is also the author of God With Us: The Gospel of Matthew (IVP).
