Preparing for Sunday + Weekly Announcements
I hope you've noticed how full of the Holy Spirit Romans 8 has been. He sets us free, indwells us, leads us, gives us life, enables us to fight sin, and adopts us. And in our text this week, Romans 8:26–27, we read that the Spirit helps us when we are weak and intercedes for us according to the will of God.
I'm very thankful for this text because I'm so often weak and wordless. And in those moments the Spirit of God does not draw back with his arms folded waiting for us to figure it all out, but he comes and helps us. This is such sweet news! I'm looking forward to thinking deeply about it with you all this Sunday.
Grace and peace,
