Announcements, Nov. 4, 2016
I’m really looking forward to diving into our text this week, 1 Timothy 6:1–10. The primary thrust of this passage is contentment in Christ in a culture of consumerism. If that was an issue for Christians in the first century, how much more so for us!
Take some time to read the text before Sunday. Be careful not to think about other people who need the truths in this passage, but consider how we ourselves are prone to cravings that draw us away from satisfaction in God. May the Lord make us more like him as we gather this Sunday and may he draw unbelievers to himself.
We’ll also gather around the Table this Sunday and receive the Lord’s Supper. Let’s prepare our hearts for this gospel meal.
See you Sunday!
