Preparing for Sunday + Weekly Announcements
We’ve said for a few weeks that Romans 8 is all about assurance: God will bring his people safely home. For those who are in Christ Jesus, there is no condemnation and there will be no separation. In our text this week, Romans 8:28–30, we see the grounds for that rock-solid assurance—the unconditional, electing love of God for those whom he has called.
Admittedly, this is a deep and even controversial text. But we must not let that keep us from wrestling with it and considering what it says. I’m really looking forward to working through this very important passage with you. Take some time to read it and dwell on it before Sunday. Pray that God would help us see and savor the beauty of the gospel and the unbreakable chain of his love in the life of his people.
See you Sunday!
