God and Israel: Grace Prevails!

God and Israel: Grace Prevails!

No one can deny that the Jews are a unique people. What other people can trace their lineage to Abraham and the human ancestry of Jesus to their stock? Jesus was Jewish. Yet, given their response to the Messiah when he came, has God given up on ethnic Israel? Is anyone beyond the grace of God? Those are the questions Paul addresses in Romans 11. Join us Sunday for "God and Israel: Grace Prevails!"

Now No Condemnation

Now No Condemnation

Treadmills are unforgiving taskmasters. There's only one reason I'm for a treadmill: I enjoy eating. That's it. Period. Now pass the pizza. Thus far in Romans 1-7, we've basked in the wonderful truths of the gospel: Justification by faith, union with Christ, and salvation through Christ alone. Sunday we transition into the second half of the book. Paul will pick up the pace in examining how faith in Christ leads to real life change. If we've been saved by grace, we are able to live by grace, and put the performance treadmill away. Make plans to join us this week for "Now No Condemnation".

Saving Grace Produces Godly Change

By Aaron Mann

One of the most beautiful truths in all of Scripture is that Christ lived a real life and died a real death in order to bring salvation to the world. For the Christian today, perhaps an even greater truth is that Christ does not ever leave His children to figure things out on their own. Titus 2 reminds us that as much as sinners are saved by grace, saints are sustained by grace. We hope God challenges you as we open up God's Word and look at how saving grace must produce godly change in the heart and life of every Christian.
