Easter Sunday PLUS Upcoming Events
I’m really looking forward to this Sunday! Our text will be Romans 3:21–26, one of the most important passages in the Bible. One theologian calls it, “the greatest paragraph ever written,” because in this short passage Paul unpacks the heart of the gospel and how God is both just and the justifier of those who have faith in Jesus. I encourage you to read it a few times before Sunday.
As I mentioned last week, Easter Sunday presents us with more of an opportunity to invite and preach the gospel to unbelievers. Pray for the gospel to be clear, for Christ to be exalted, and that the Lord would give repentance and saving faith to many who gather with us this weekend in both the children’s rooms and the sanctuary. Let’s be on the look out for those we can encourage, bless, help and greet this Sunday!
I love being one of your pastors!
Grace and peace,
