Who Can Condemn? – Romans 8:33-34

Who Can Condemn? – Romans 8:33-34

The first and the chief consolation of the godly in adversities, is to be fully persuaded of the paternal kindness of God; for hence arises the certainty of their salvation, and that calm quietness of the soul through which it comes that adversities are sweetened, or at least the bitterness of sorrow mitigated. Hardly then a more suitable encouragement to patience could be adduced than this, a conviction that God is propitious to us; and hence Paul makes this confidence the main ground of that consolation, by which it behooves the faithful to be strengthened against all evils. And as the salvation of man is first assailed by accusation, and then subverted by condemnation, he in the first place averts the danger of accusation. There is indeed but one God, at whose tribunal we must stand; then there is no room for accusation when he justifies us. The faithful are very far from being involved in the danger of condemnation, since Christ by expiating their sins has anticipated the judgment of God, and by his intercession not only abolishes death, but also covers our sins in oblivion, so that they come not to an account. – John Calvin

Sunday Service has resumed! Click here for more information.

The following changes have been made to our service schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic:

We will have Sunday service from 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM at Harvest Creek Venue and then dismiss for the day.  If you think it best to stay home then please stay home.  DO WHAT YOU THINK IS BEST FOR YOUR SITUATION.

Tuesday and Wednesday Bible studies will be combined.  We will meet at 7:00 PM on Wednesdays.  Call for details.

Sunday Service and Wednesday Bible study will be available as a Facebook live stream.  If you will be watching the live stream we recommend that you set aside the time for the service as if you were present.  We will pick songs that are familiar so you can sing along from home.  Please have your Bible open and ready to follow along for scripture reading and the sermon.

Hopefully this will soon pass and we can resume our normal schedule and activities.  Until then we will make adjustments as the need requires.  STAY SAFE and MAY GOD BLESS YOU.
