My hope and prayer for this blog each week is that God would use it to stir your affections for Him and for His Word, and to help you prepare for and eagerly anticipate what God will do through our time gathered together on Sunday. Here’s the first Preparing for Sunday post with a more in-depth explanation of why we do this.
PREPARING FOR SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4
This week we’re introducing a new song, “But God.” This song is taken right out of Ephesians 2:4-7:
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
I want to encourage everyone to take some time and get familiar with this song this week. It’s full of rich, gospel truth. May this song and the truth that God, by his grace in and through Jesus, has saved us “even when we were dead in our trespasses” encourage our hearts this week.
I look forward to singing this song together with you all this Sunday!
