Announcements, Aug. 19, 2016
This Sunday we’ll finish the first chapter of 1 Timothy, in which Paul recounts God’s grace to him in his own salvation and call to ministry. In verse 15, we read one of the most succinct and powerful gospel statements in all of Scripture. Paul says, “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.” This truth is at the center of the theology of not just this letter, but the whole Bible. We’ll unpack the beautiful doctrine embedded in this short sentence and consider Paul’s warning about shipwrecking our faith.
Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
