...but God

Darkroom

Analog photography is anything but instant. Film negatives must be carefully processed through the developer, stop bath, and fix chemical washes under a safelight in the darkroom. Like fine art photography, God develops us through hardship—in the dark rooms of life. He exposes the negative images of suffering and fixes them on the print of our lives to showcase His presence. In this teaching series, Skip Heitzig demonstrates how God develops some of His greatest portraits and masterpieces in the dark rooms of life.

Confronting the Prince of Darkness
Luke 4:1-13
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
As we have seen in this series, some of the Bible’s greatest heroes had darkroom experiences. They were developed by those painful experiences and used by God to impact their world. Today we examine Jesus Himself, the Light of the World (see John 8:12), facing off with the Prince of Darkness (see Ephesians 6:12). Five adjectives describe this confrontation, giving us insight into both the nature of temptation and the resolve of Jesus to follow His Father’s plan for saving the world.

Facing Darkness with Grace
2 Corinthians 12:1-10
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
How do you face dark times? Notice I didn’t ask how should you face dark times, but rather how do you? Pain and suffering are universal, but for the Christian, they are valuable and even beneficial. Today we take a look at the apostle Paul’s own personal experience. He had a very positive episode followed by a very negative one. It rattled him at first, but eventually he learned a lesson that lifted him to a place where he could face the darkness with confidence and grace.

When Society Grows Dark
Daniel 6
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Every culture ebbs and flows as it marches toward extinction. The great Roman Empire, the Mayan civilization, Bronze Age Greece—every complex society in history has eventually collapsed. Daniel was in the midst of the great Babylonian Empire (also extinct today). As a godly and faithful man, he experienced the darkness of an oppressive government. When the foundation of society crumbles, where do you go for solid footing and how should you respond?

The Darkness of a Broken Family
1 Samuel 24
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
One of the darkest rooms anyone can enter is dealing with a broken family. To be part of a family that is fragmented and malfunctioning feels bleak and miserable. The by-products of being in such a family are feeling unwanted, unloved, and isolated. But did you know that many people in Scripture came from such families, including David? The good news is that God is in the business of fixing broken things, including broken families. David’s darkroom of family difficulty is what we consider here.

Choosing to "Go Dark"
Hebrews 11:23-29
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Though dark circumstances are everyone’s lot, no one deliberately chooses a gloomy experience. Why opt for pain when you can have pleasure? Why pick suffering when you can have solace? But Moses did exactly that. Moses was a man who made the deliberate choice to suffer. He picked the darkroom! Why he did that, how he did that, and what became of that choice are the basis for his story and his fame. We remember Moses because of his personal choice to “go dark.”

Welcome to the Darkroom
Genesis 39:20-23
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Just as photographs were once developed in a darkroom, so God develops our lives through dark and difficult times. A photographer works to make a beautiful picture come to life in the dim light of that environment, and God develops us in the gloomiest of circumstances. He’s done it for years and He’s done it with great success. God’s best workers have emerged from the darkest moments to make the greatest impact. Joseph was one of them. Pockmarked by early hardship in life, Joseph eventually got thrown into a dark dungeon. But that’s just the beginning of his story!
