VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED: You may find the information in this sermon graphic or triggering. Graphic details regarding Jesus Christ's crucifixion are given at the beginning. There are statistics regarding the frequency of abuse, and some details regarding the pastors own life experience. If any of these things may be triggering to you, or if you are easily overwhelmed when someone is discussing trauma and abuse, we recommend watching a different sermon in this series. Life.Church has many resources available for you if you are in need of counseling or prayer. Feel free to contact a local campus (or the online campus) or request prayer.
