We have some news. Our last Sunday at GracePoint Community Church will be July 26th. And so that means we have four more Sundays together. That means I have four more opportunities to preach to you from God’s good book.
I consider it the deepest honor that you have let me be your teacher, by God’s grace, these past six years. I have not earned it, and I have not deserved it. But it has been my joy. And so I want to leave you well, with four of the scriptures that have most shaped me and my ministry.
My first real sermon series was on Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. I picked it because it sounded cool. But the Lord picked it because we needed it. His teaching is not just counter cultural. It gives us a picture of life that is other-worldly and good. And so we will tackle the first few verses this Sunday (Matthew 5:3-5), to see that Kingdom life–the happy life–is not won by our strength, but by our weakness. Pray for humility and joy.
