Scripture Reading – 2 Corinthians 6-8

Wherever you are in the world this Sunday, May 7, 2017, I trust you are heeding the exhortation of the writer of Hebrews:  “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” (Hebrews 10:24-25).  The “day approaching” is the imminent return of the LORD Jesus Christ.  For this pastor, there is no other place I want to be than worshipping the LORD with His people!

I am continuing my series, “Perspectives on the Cross” in today’s 10:30 AM service and considering the perspectives of the Nameless Faces of those “that passed by”, the Religious Hypocrites represented by the chief priests, scribes and elders, and the two thieves dying on crosses beside the cross on which Jesus Christ suffered and died.

In today’s 6:00 PM service I will invite our church family to consider the “First Mention Principle” of interpretation as we examine “Seven ‘Firsts'” found in Genesis 14-15.

With the heart of a shepherd,

Pastor Travis D. Smith
