This Sunday, we'll be starting a 5 week series entitled "Flawed", which looks at how, throughout the Bible and throughout history, a perfect, holy, and righteous God uses imperfect people in carrying out His wonderful story of redemption. We'll specifically be looking at how God used Abraham to fulfill His promise to all nations

Gabe deGarmeaux will preach from Genesis 12:10-20

 

Through the liturgy, we will look at how God has called us to Himself despite our sinfulness. God knows that we are sinful but He has gone to great measure to bring us to Himself and called to to be ambassadors of Him.

Throughout the series, we'll read this assurance of our salvation. Let these words be true for you:

But the Lords tells us

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."

Therefore, let our weakness not be an position of shame but a display of the power of Christ in us.

from 2 Corinthians 12:9

 

Some songs that we will be singing are:

Murdered Son - Celebrating how Jesus Christ's sacrifice has given us right standing before God!

Beautiful Things - God takes imperfect people and makes us beautiful things. He's been doing it from the beginning of time: making Adam out of dust. He makes us beautiful every day, over and over again.

Come Thou Fount - A classic hymn with a new arrangement. This hymn speaks of our naturaly sinful state and God's supernatural love for us. We'll sing "Here I raise my ebenezer hither by Thy help I come". "Ebenezer" means "stone of help". It's most known in in 1 Samuel 7:11-13 where the Israelites defeated the Philistines. In honor of God, they raised an Ebenezer (similiar to a monument) declaring that God is the reason they've won. When we sing this line, we're saying the same thing: "It is God who has brought us to Himself".

 

It is a joy to be reassured of this: that we all are flawed people in the hands of a FLAWLESS GOD. Please join us in prayer as we pray that the gospel would be made evident, that God would bring lost people back home, and that the gospel would sink deeper into our hearts. Don't forget that we are having breakfast together at 10am at the school. Please join us!!! See you all on Sunday morning.
