I can’t imagine what my life would be like without Sundays, but I know for sure it would be very dull! Sunday is absolutely my very favorite day of the week because I get to celebrate the resurrection and finished work of my Savior with my siblings in Christ AND I get to hear as many as 4 sermons in one day! woot woot! Here’s your weekly recap. Again, the notes don’t do the messages justice.
Devotion by Bro. Wayne Sparks
“Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.” -Lamentations 3:22 (read whole passage: Lamentations 3:21-25)
We become consumed with the mercy of God! Even when we fall short, fail and sin, His compassions do not fail. Great is His faithfulness, not mine!
Sunday School by Bro. Steve Dawson
“He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish.” -John 21:6
When Christ directs His disciples and they obey, He gives the increase!
Morning Message by Pastor Steve Wainright
“For in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, He has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before Him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.” -Colossians 1:19-23
His plan: Reconcile to Himself all things
His method: Make peace through the blood of Christ on the cross
-When you recognize the greatness of sin, you recognize the greater grace of God!
His Purpose: Present me holy (saint), unblameable (faultless), unreproveable (without blame) in His sight
-When God looks at me, He sees Christ and His finished work!
Reconciliation is ours to share with others.
Evening Message by Pastor Steve Wainright
“For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens.” -Hebrews 7:26
Remember the morning message, “When God looks at me, He sees Christ and His finished work”? How cool is it that God worked it out for these two passages to fit together tonight?! Wow! Praise God for a great High Priest whose name is love. (Exodus 28)
