THIS SUNDAY’S WORSHIP:

The Rich and the Kingdom of God

NOVEMBER 17—BIBLE SUNDAY
Luke 18:9–14
 
Luke tells a story of two people who are opposite each other. The story is directed towards those who consider themselves righteous and look down on others, but it is also about grace—about God forgiving what He cannot excuse. And so our salvation depends not on what we can achieve, but on what we are willing to receive. We are not saved by good works, but by God’s work. The true “righteous” person is not someone who flawlessly observes all the “rules”, but someone who begs for mercy and is accepted by God—despite having plenty of human imperfections. 
 
 
Pastor Ezekiel preaching. Tree of Life Praise Band at 9:00. Joy Bells at both services.
