29 Jun Why Abraham? – Romans 4 – June 28, 2020
It may appear that Abraham is a mere example of someone who once trusted God and somehow illustrates how we are to trust God. But a closer look reveals that Abraham is more than an example. Through Abraham, God moves his plan of salvation toward Christ, reveals the gospel of justification by grace and faith, raises up a people from Jews and Gentiles for his glory, and gives his church a mission on earth that extends to all the nations. Christians are connected to Abraham, for he is the father of all who believe.
Grace Community church exists to build spiritually healthy people for ministry in the world. One of the ways that we pursue this mission is by gathering each Sunday for corporate worship, prayer, and biblical teaching. The corporate nature of this gathering is both edifying to the believer and a witness of God’s grace to the world. Sermon speaker is Scott Patty unless otherwise noted.
