Preparing for Sunday + Weekly Announcements
In our text this week, Romans 6:15–19, Paul continues his attack on the cheap grace of antinomianism by explaining that true grace transfers us from slavery to sin to slavery to righteousness. The good news is not that we must change our own hearts and do better, but that God gives us a new heart with which we are now enabled to obey.
Take some time to read and dwell on our text before we gather. Ask the Lord to show us wonderful things from His Word. Also, on this first Sunday of October, we’ll gather around the Lord’s Table together. Looking forward to seeing you!
Grace and peace,
