This Sunday: Jesus Our Priest
The Old Testament is filled with examples of men who imperfectly served God’s people as prophet, priest, or king (sometimes maybe in two of those roles), but Christ perfectly fulfills all three. Last week, we kicked off our series on these “offices” of Christ with a look at how Jesus is the truer and greater Prophet. Do yourself a favor and listen to Tyler’s sermon here. This week, we continue our series by considering how Jesus is the truer and greater Priest.
On Sunday, we’ll also have the privilege of seeing a brother baptized! So, come ready to hear from the Lord as we worship together. This Sunday (like every Sunday) would be a good week to invite a friend or neighbor as well.
Grace & peace,
