It's been a long day. Worship this morning, a funeral this afternoon, and Alpha tonight. Fortunately we have a great team here and I'm not in charge of much. Preaching is my main gig.
I'd like to invite you to hear today's sermon from our church. You can read the scriptures first by clicking here. You might want to have a Bible available - in addition to the scriptures assigned for the day, I refer to Ephesians 1:3-8; Romans 5:6-8; Second Corinthians 5:21--the links are to the Revised Standard Version, which we have multiple copies of. (During worship these scriptures were put up on the screen... if you use those links you'll need to scroll down.)
The audio of this morning's sermon in mp3 format is available by clicking here. It's just over 18 minutes long. Many thanks to Jeff Ertl for his technical expertise in getting the sermon recorded digitally at the 11:00 hour.
God says two things to us: Repent and Believe. Turn away from your sin and believe the one who give amazing grace, who calls us to trust him, and who makes us God's beloved children.
Share your thoughts by making a comment, or call or email me. If you're in the area, feel free to stop by sometime so we can meet and talk! God loves you forever. I hope we, at our church, can be a reflection of that love, however imperfect that reflection may be.
