Announcements, May 26, 2017
Mark 9 serves as a ballast. At the transfiguration we are brought joyfully into the coming glory of the Son, but we also see the weight of sin and the grim future for those who trust in their own righteousness.
We are not allowed to simply sleep on grace! The death and resurrection of Jesus resides within the tension of unspeakable horror and unfathomable glory. We cannot obtain one without escaping the other. Either we have faith (a grace-purchased gift), or we do not.
This is what we’ll be thinking about on Sunday, so read Mark 9 for yourselves, and come ready to lean forward!
Grace and peace,
