Ephesians 2:8-10: By Grace

Church Family,

My heart is so full of joy this morning. I literally told my King and Savior all of the ways that I could remember of how I sinned against Him. Rebelled against Him. Spat in His face. Lied to the world about Him. In my brokenness I looked for every way to bring peace and happiness to my life, but none of them could satisfy my need for long.

Ephesians 2:8-10 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

By Grace, God’s unmerited favor. I can’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, but Praise God He gives it. Praise God that my sin weighs me down. How else would I know that I needed someone to heal the brokenness in my life? So, be amazed by this fact, God shows us that we have sinned and then God offers to pay for our sins. The one that we betrayed has chosen to save us.

Will you put your Faith in God today? Faith that by His grace He has paid it all. That all your sin can be forgiven. Faith that trusts that His ways, word, and promises are what we need. His commandments aren’t keeping us from joy, but they are screaming, if you do that, it is going to hurt you. God wants the best for us. Will you put your Faith in God today?

Reminders:

  1. Thursday night the Baptist Women are meeting at Wanda Jordan’s and the Baptist Young Women are meeting at Jeana Carroll’s.
  2. Sunday, we will have a brief meeting for those interested in going to Toronto on a mission trip this summer.
  3. Monday night at 6pm supper will be served and at 7pm the Association meeting begins. It will cost everyone $5 to eat.
  4. Wednesday January 24th, we will meet at 6pm. Supper will be free. We ask that you bring a dessert. We will meet with Matt Hess and Scott Ridenour from our Toronto church plant. Come and see why we are so excited to partner up with these and others in Toronto to reach the world for Christ.
  5. We will monitor the weather for tonight’s service, but as of right now we are still having services tonight. I look forward to praying, singing, and worshipping together.
  6. This Sunday we will have a baptism service. Please invite all your lost friends and loved ones to see this. Pray that God will pour out His Spirit on us before, during, and after this service.

Love, Serve, Go
