Announcements, Feb. 26, 2016
How I’ve missed you! Robert and I had a great time ministering alongside some dear brothers and sisters in India, but I’m really looking forward to seeing you all Sunday. We’ll pick back up where Will left off (by the way, great work by him last two weeks!) as we look at Matthew 7:12–14.
The first verse in this text is one of the more familiar ones in the Bible, often called the “golden rule.” But while it’s familiar, it’s often misunderstood and misapplied. The danger of misunderstanding this truth is underscored by the next two verses where Jesus plainly declares there are only two ways to live. In this text, and for the rest of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus lays siege to ‘easy-believism’ and mere cultural or nominal Christianity. Take some time read the text before Sunday and pray for God to transform us!
