Announcements, June 10, 2016
While Brad and Will are in Uganda we’re taking a break from the book of Daniel to spend some time in the New Testament, specifically 2 Corinthians. As I’ve been preparing this week, 2 Corinthians 4:1 keeps coming to mind: “Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart.” This passage makes me ask two questions:
1. Why would Paul lose heart?
2. Why doesn’t Paul lose heart?
We find answers to these questions in the surrounding text (4:1 is just a starting point!), and you’ll be absolutely shocked to discover that the Gospel has something to do with it. My prayer is that Paul’s ministry will encourage our own ministry to the lost and to one another.
Looking forward to Sunday. Hope to see you all then!
