Message for this week.

 

As we gather for worship this Sunday the readings speak about faith. In both the first reading and the epistle the holy writers make it clear that everyone–whoever they may be, whatever their nationality–receives forgiveness of sins and becomes a child of God only through faith in Christ who died for them and was raised again. It is through faith that Christians overcome the world and gain the victory. And it is this faith which constitutes abiding in Jesus and his love. This Spirit–worked response to God's love in Jesus gives believers status as friends of Jesus, who become confidants and partners in his work as his love for them overflows in their love for others. God grant us to love one another as Christ has loved us.
