Last week during the sermon portion of our worship service I asked the question, ‘How can you be saved?’ I want to thank those of the congregation that texted, tweeted, emailed or wrote out a response to the question. I really enjoy hearing from you, the congregation, in regards to what the Lord is saying. I truly believe that God speaks to us individually and corporately. It is good to spend time in God’s word, to share with each other what we discern His word is saying and to take time to share it with one another.
Here are some of the responses that I received:
- We haven’t done anything to earn it. It was all accomplished on the cross. A stumbling block for some and foolishness to others, but for us who are being saved, Christ the power of God.
- Saved by grace not of works lest any man should boast.
- By the grace of God as I learn to relate to the Lord Jesus Christ as my Saviour.
- Trust the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.
- I believe Christ died for me to give me everlasting life hereafter.
Thanks again for the responses. If by chance I missed your response, let me know. You can email to email@example.com, text 306.533.7795, tweet @cory_papac or call 306.789.2727
If you were unable to attend the worship service this past Sunday I would like to encourage you to read through Acts 15. The key verse from yesterday’s sermon was Acts 15:11. Feel free to send any thoughts, insights, revelations or questions in regards to Acts 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org
This upcoming week Pastor Josh Smith from The Link Church in Medicine Hat, AB will be preaching from Acts 16.
We announced on Sunday that our Wednesday night Generations service will be resuming on September 11, 2013. I have really been missing the Wednesday night service. If you are unable to attend a Wednesday night service, we hope to see you on a Sunday morning. If you are unable to attend a Sunday morning, then we hope to see you on a Wednesday night.
