This Sunday: “The Heart of Christ”
I’ve long loved the letter to the Hebrews. It’s rich and beautiful in its Christology and helps us understand how the whole Bible fits together as God’s one unified plan of redemption. Someday I hope to preach through this majestic book.
But for now, this Sunday we will consider just one verse, Hebrews 4:15, which says, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.” Our plan will be to think upon the heart of Christ for his people—how tender he is towards us in our weaknesses, and then how tender we should be toward one another.
As for the big question about when we will be able to gather again—we just don’t know yet. We hope and trust it will be soon, but it is too early for us to tell at this time. We continue to consult with national and state church networks along with other local churches in Columbus to helps us think through the best course of action. One thing seems to be clear—even when we do gather again, it will likely be a phased approach incorporating some temporary social-distancing procedures. This, of course, will require much patience, grace, and wisdom. Pray for your leaders.
I’m thankful for you, brothers and sisters!
