Hello Church Family,

Prayer Meeting: Tonight at 7:00pm at the church.

New City Catechism: Question 25
    Does Christ’s death mean all our sins can be forgiven?
    Yes, because Christ’s death on the cross fully paid the penalty for our sin, God graciously imputes Christ’s righteousness to us as if it were our own and will remember our sins no more.
    2 Corinthians 5:21: “For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
    A couple of weeks ago I referenced the song “Man of Sorrows, What a Name.” Sovereign Grace music has arranged it and called it “Hallelujah, What a Saviour.” It wonderfully reinforces the truth of this week’s Catechism question. This is the Good News. All our sins can be forgiven. Praise God! If you have a few minutes here is the song on YouTube: “Hallelujah, What a Saviour”

Hello Church Family,

New City Catechism: Question 24
    Why was it necessary for Christ, the Redeemer, to die?
    Since death is the punishment for sin, Christ died willingly in our place to deliver us from the power and penalty of sin and bring us back to God. By his substitutionary atoning death, he alone redeems us from hell and gains for us forgiveness of sin, righteousness, and everlasting life.
    Colossians 1:21–22 “And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him.”
What we have been learning about in this Catechism is what is known as the Penal-Substitutionary Theory of the Atonement. There are other theories out there. For example, some people believe that Jesus was more of a moral example rather than a sacrifice. Our responsibility as Christians is to check what we believe with the Bible. What theory makes the best sense of what God has revealed to us in His Word? For more information you can check out this website: https://www.gotquestions.org/atonement-theories.html
