Pastor Chris Timm
We continue to look at this idea of from triumph to tragedy to victory. Michael Card, who is a Christian singer, said this: “faith in the Old Testament is defined by a person’s willingness to wait for the promises of God to come, faith in the New Testament means following the promised one". There is a subtle difference there, there is a sense of anticipation and an idea of moment. So when we look at our life as living in the New Testament context it speaks of our experience of the ebbs and the flows. There are times of triumph, there are times of tragedy, but we who know Jesus as saviour ultimately are moving to a final place of victory.
