Weekly Update – January 22, 2020

Hello Church Family,

Potluck Sunday: This week, January 26 will be the first potluck of 2020! 

New City Catechism Question 19
   Is there any way to escape punishment and be brought back into God’s favor?
   Yes, to satisfy his justice, God himself, out of mere mercy, reconciles us to himself and delivers us from sin and from the punishment for sin, by a Redeemer.
   Through the work of our great Redeemer, Jesus Christ, we can be not only forgiven of our sins, but restored to a positive relationship with God.   We don’t just go from negative to zero, and then have to earn our righteousness from zero. Instead Jesus removes our negative sins to zero and then gives us His positive righteousness. This is indeed Good News!

Ladies’ Isaiah Bible Study: Tomorrow, Thursday, January 23, 10:00am at the church.

Important Congregational Meeting: Thursday, January 23, 7:30pm at the church. Representatives from the Alliance Office in Calgary will be present to discuss matters with you. This is a follow up to the December 11 meeting. This meeting is for both members and non-members.

Tonight’s Prayer Meetings for both the elders and the church are cancelled due to the weather. Stay warm!

New City Catechism Question 18
    Will God allow our disobedience and idolatry to go unpunished?
    No, every sin is against the sovereignty, holiness, and goodness of God, and against his righteous law, and God is righteously angry with our sins and will punish them in his just judgment both in this life, and in the life to come.
   Charles Spurgeon wrote that were God to not punish the wicked then the innocent would bear the offences of sin. There are two meanings here. First of all, we understand that it isn’t just for innocent people to be wronged and for the guilty to go unpunished. Secondly, when we consider our own sinful selves, we glory in the mystery of the cross whereby our innocent Saviour bore our offences and satisfied the justice of God.
