This Sunday: “How to Not Lose Heart”
Thanks to Logan Copley for his convicting message last week from Hebrews! If you missed it, you can find it here. Also, be sure to pray for Logan and his wife Molly as they prepare to go to Serbia this Fall where they will serve at the Baptist Theological School in Novi Sad, Serbia.
Our plan later in August will be to start another series through a biblical book, likely something shorter from the Old Testament. But for the balance of the summer, we will look at a few individual passages that I hope will encourage us as a church. Specifically, this Sunday I will preach on Luke 18:1–8 and the story of the persistent widow. Jesus tells this parable for the purpose of encouraging his disciples to not lose heart.
We see brokenness all around us and we’re painfully aware of the brokenness that still resides inside each of us. As a result, it can be easy to lose heart! But Jesus gives us this story and the example of this widow so that we will not lose heart. I’m looking forward to working through this short, powerful story with you!
See you Sunday!
