Weekly Update – January 30, 2020

Hello Church Family,

New City Catechism Question 20
    Who is the Redeemer?
    The only Redeemer is the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, in whom God became man and bore the penalty of sin himself.
    Two words in this answer really stand out to me. First, the word, “only.” There is only one Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ. No one else, and no thing else can redeem humanity.
    Second, the word, “himself.” God himself bears our penalty and atones for our offences. This is sheer mercy and true forgiveness. The One to whom we owe a debt we can not pay, pays the debt on our behalf.

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!
