“For He Himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in His flesh the dividing wall of hostility.” -Ephesians 2:14

Scripture @ Sunrise 2.2.09

It was another great Sunday at New Life Baptist Church (always in the Lord)!  Here’s your brief recap, which by no means does the day any justice.  Get a CD if you had to miss it for some reason.

There’s not a verse that sums it up, they’re all sooooo good! 

Sunday School (Steve Dawson)

The reason Christ was born was to die.

Sunday Morning Sermon (Pastor Steve Wainright)
“So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.  May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy…” -Colossians 1:10-11
*Know God’s Word if you want to be filled with the knowledge of His will.

“For He Himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in His flesh the dividing wall of hostility…”  -Ephesians 2:14
*Tabernacle: Courtyard (People)>Holy Place (Priest)>Most Holy Place (High Priest)
God tore down the middle wall through Christ!

*At the altar, you’d probably see blood, representing God’s wrath. 
*There must be a sacrifice to approach God. 
*Christ is the propitiation for our sins. (Romans 3:25)
*The Perfect Lamb became the Perfect Priest and also became the Perfect Altar!
*Since He has done so much for us, how then shall we live?  (Romans 12:1) As living sacrifices. 

AMEN and amen!  Happy Monday!  :o)
