Dear GRCC Family,
In strange times like these, it’s a great joy to have a church family that we can fellowship with and hear the true word of God taught and honored. For the last four Sundays, Pastor Manny has led us in a study of the great book of Jonah. It was a wonderfully fruitful study.
Now, this week, Pastor Wade will share a very personal teaching that our Lord has laid on his heart. It’s entitled: Jesus is My Identity, and his primary text will be from Colossians 3. Here’s an excerpt:
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
So, if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, then do what He says. Pursue the things that Jesus cares about. Look up and be alert to what is going on around Christ…see things from His perspective, not what the world is preaching.
Only in Christ is there freedom and joy and holiness. If you are a Christian, your old life is dead, and your new life, your real life, is with, and in, Jesus Christ. He is your life and He is your identity.
We are so looking forward to this teaching. Come and pray and worship and study God’s Word with your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Prayer and 9:30.
Service begins at 10.
Blessings and love to you all in the name of Jesus,
