Greetings from Pastor John

Hi Church,

This week we will be looking at Exodus 20-21. Once God gave the 10 Commandments there was discussion on what it meant for people to live in relationship with each other. So, the law came about to equate justice toward your neighbor. We find in these two chapters there is a lot of talk on retribution and repayment. There was a constant balancing act between payment and repayment within relationships. We will look at what that leads to when all we do is balance payment and repayment. We need someone to make a payment once and for all. We will see that the law leads us to Christ.

Also, we have a connection Sunday this weekend after service. Plan on sticking around and getting to know someone new or saying hi to someone you know!

John

Table Conversations

•What did the Israelites promise to do?

•Do you think God’s people kept their promise to worship only God? Why?

•What task did Jesus tell His disciples to do?


Because we rest in the completed work of Jesus for our salvation and relationship with God, we seek to obey God out of love and gratitude while warning others to turn from their sin and turn to Christ alone for their salvation.


HEAD: What are some ways believers can reflect the faithfulness of God?

HEART: How will you reevaluate your present circumstances in light of God’s faithfulness?

HANDS: What are some specific ways you will obey the Lord’s commands this week?
