Announcements, June 13
This Sunday we’ll look at Genesis 15:1–21, one of the mountain peaks of the Old Testament (and, really, all of the Bible for that matter). In this text, we see God counting Abram righteous because of his faith and confirming his covenant with Abram through a striking and vivid sacrifice. Genesis 15 then becomes the basis of Paul’s argument in Romans 4 for how we are justified by our faith in Christ’s sacrifice for us. The beautiful and breathtaking truths of this text are at the very heart of the gospel and what it means to be a Christian. I can hardly wait for this Sunday! Be sure to read Genesis 15 and Romans 4 before Sunday a few times. Looking forward to seeing you!
Grace and peace!
