This Sunday: “Watch Out, Be Wise”
We’ve got just two more Sundays in Romans! Glory! Then, on the last Sunday of June, we’ll have the privilege of hearing from Conrad Mbewe, pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church in Zambia. Dr. Mbewe is an internationally respected preacher, known for his gospel clarity and wisdom. If you’re not familiar with him, here’s a short video to acquaint you. He’ll preach the morning of June 30 and that evening as well at 6 p.m. He’ll also do a preaching and Bible-teaching seminar for local pastors and Bible teachers the following Monday, July 1. Pray that the Lord would use that weekend to bear fruit in our church and community!
Now back to this Sunday. Our text is Romans 16:17–23 in which Paul warns the church against those who create division and teach bad doctrine. We too must watch out for bad doctrine in our day. In fact, with the accessibility the internet provides, we live in an age where more than ever we need to be aware of teachings and teachers that create obstacles contrary to good doctrine. I hope our time working through this passage will help us grow in wisdom and discernment as a congregation. The stakes are high.
Looking forward to Sunday!
