Shaking at Gateway Church: What to Do When The Unthinkable Happens


What do you do when the unthinkable happens?

In a special message to Gateway Church, Pastor Joakim Lundqvist discussed what to do when the unthinkable happens.

Using the story of Lazarus’ death and how it impacted the lives of Mary and Martha, Lundqvist says that believers must first and foremost stay close to Jesus when troubles hit.

“Let me tell you, Gateway,” Lundqvist continues, “Crying at the feet of Jesus is completely different from crying anywhere else. Coming to Jesus might not give you all the answers for all the questions that you have, but you know what? Answers will rarely heal our hearts. But the presence of Jesus will.”

The second thing Lundqvist encourages the members of Gateway Church to do is stay close to their family, community and church.

“If there is one house who suffers, if there is one house who hurts and is heartbroken, all these other people come to join,” Lundqvist says.

“We are not called to be alone. We are called to be parts of a body that is called the body of Christ. That is the church, and then and only then will we find our destiny,” says Lundqvist.

Third, Lundqvist impressed upon the Gateway Church community to keep believing in Jesus’ resurrection power.

“You don’t have to have it all together. You don’t have to have all the answers. You can be sad. You can be hurt. You can be heartbroken. The only thing He asks is ‘Do you trust that He is in control?’” Lundqvist asks.
