We had a great worship service yesterday. From the singing, to the prayers, to the scripture readings, to sharing in the Lord's Supper together, to the message, God was glorified and I hope you were encouraged and strengthened by being with us.
You can download yesterday's sermon below. Always remember that God has guaranteed your way home to him by himself! He's given you a part of himself, his Spirit, and pledges himself to us by himself! What a great God we worship and serve.
Like Cain, we often find ourselves "east of Eden," away from God's presence. We are overcome by stress, worry, fear, or whatever, and we move away from God trying to solve our problems ourselves. We search and search for the way home, often frustrating ourselves and our faith because we can't quite find it.
But it is God who does the all the work to bring us home to him. He takes the initiative, he creates the plan, he works the plan, he takes the burden upon himself, all for us. And then he even guarantees it to us!
Make your way home to God by following the Rising (Risen) Sun (Son).
