Last week we saw that God loves us right now, he has loved us since the beginning, and he will love us forever. This should provide a comfort and confidence that can keep us strong and steady in an ever changing and turbulent world.

This week we will look at a passage in 2 Corinthians 4 to gain some insight about how we can live in this world as sons and daughters of God. Read the whole chapter to prepare for this time together. In it, Paul talks about how we are “jars of clay” holding the treasure of the truth of the gospel. Pretty cool imagery that I can relate to a great deal.

Looking forward to Sunday!


Grace and peace,

Last week we talked about the fact that all of us come into the world with a question mark over our heads asking, “What Am I Worth?”

We spend our lifetime looking desperately for an answer.

The world answers that question by saying that you must prove your worth. You are defined and valued by what you do and how you look. The better you perform the more you are valued.

Most of us approach God the same way. We try to prove our worth and earn his approval… But no matter how good we are, we fail at times. And when we do, we believe that God is either angry, disappointed, disgusted  or all three of those things.

But God, in his Word, gives a totally different answer than the world. He says you are already worthy because he made you in his image and he loves you. Your value is based on what he has done.

This week, we will explore this idea a bit more. Many times we think that Jesus is the loving part of God– the New Testament shows God’s love. But then we may think that the Old Testament shows the angry, punishing God. We will see from the Old Testament that God has always loved people.

So what went wrong? Why is there so much pain and brokenness in the world? How come I don’t feel like God loves me?

Well, we’ll talk about that too. Join us at 9:15am this Sunday to see more about God’s incredible love for you.

Looking forward to Sunday!
