Announcements, August 11, 2017
If you can run a marathon, how much more easily could you run a mile? If you can do the harder thing, then how much more can you accomplish the lesser? That’s Paul’s reasoning in our text this week, Romans 5:9–11. If we can be sure that God has done the seemingly impossible task of reconciling his former enemies to himself, then how much more certain can we be that he will finish the work and bring them safely home? That’s the point of this text, and I believe it is intended to produce assurance and grit for the Christian as we walk through this life. Looking forward to seeing you all this Sunday!
Grace and peace,
