Less than twenty four hours later another brother from our congregation passed into glory. His gentle and loving personality has been part of this church family for decades and his testimony was one of quiet faith through his soft-spoken words, even in the face of great difficulty. We continue to pray for his lifelong partner in faith who has stood by him as his faithful spouse for many years and continues to worship here.
From the Pulpit
They were two very different men with very different lives, both a living testament to Christ, even in their physical death — yet they both exemplified a “True Faith.” Yes, I’ll be listening closely this Sunday as we hear from the book of Romans once again on this subject of faith as exemplified by Abraham. And I’ll also be considering these other two lives of faith we’ve been touched by this week in their passing from this world. Take a look with me into the scripture we’ll be hearing from this week, Romans 4:13-25. You can read it from the ESV HERE or The Message HERE. This will be another sermon from the sermon series “The Gospel.” Last week’s sermon was entitled The Accounting, also from The Gospel series.
The recent sermon series “His, in Life and in Death” provided valuable reassurance for us. You may review the series of sermons HERE.
And We Continue in Prayer …
This week we’ve joined in prayer with our brothers and sisters about matters of life and death, health and sickness, sorrow and joy, as we pray together in all things. Hear this word of assurance from Philippians 1:19 — “for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance”
