June 5, 2016. Pastor Penny tells the story in Luke 7:11-16 of Jesus raising the widow’s son at Nain. The crowd was terrified. They believed that death was their fate. Would we have been terrified too? God is not content for us to be ruled by fear. He sent Jesus so that we don’t have to go through life accepting death as our fate.
