Why does it sometimes appear that people have it together? Why do we try so hard to do things on our own? It’s because we’re deceived. Deep down, all of us fail to see the depth of our sinfulness and desperation for Jesus—and we don’t run to him to be our Savior as a result. This weekend, Pastor Joe reminded us that we desperately need Jesus—every moment of our lives. We are not as good as we think we are. But there’s good news. When we realize how desperately we need a Savior—and that Jesus bought our forgiveness on the cross—we can fully abandon the idea that we can do it alone, and run to Jesus, our advocate, and receive grace and forgiveness for our sins.
Joe Coffey | This weekend we kicked off Love Matters Most— our new theme that will carry us through September. From the beginning, people were created and called to love God and love others no matter the cost. But in a culture that often feels more divisive than unified, radical love is no easy task. In 2020, we want this church to be full of people that are marked by love—love for God and love for one another. Our year together will focus on loving others in a way that makes a difference wherever you are, and in a way that continues to make Jesus famous and transform lives. Will you join us?
