Welcome Home Sunday
October 20, 2019 - 9:00 a.m.
God Speaks and Reality Results When God said, “Let there be light,” he wasn’t just expressing a wish, like walking into a dark house and saying, “Let’s turn some lights on.” He was actually calling a new reality into existence. “And there was light.” God speaks and reality results.
When God tells you that you are a saint, you might want to say, “But, I sin every day!” True enough, but God has spoken. He sent his Son to live, die, and rise for you, creating a new reality. In your baptism, God himself spoke to you, telling you that you are pure and blameless. And when God speaks, reality results. When God - throughout Scripture - refers to believers as a family, that is more than a metaphor. That is God calling a new reality into existence. It is our privilege and responsibility to take the power God gave us in our baptism and live in that reality, showing the same level of love and sacrifice that we would show to biological kin.
Welcome Home Sunday is a celebration of that reality. We plan to praise God for giving us a spiritual family... a spiritual home. We want this day to be a spiritual family reunion, with 100% of our members attending Why? Because God has told us we’re a family. And when God speaks, reality results. We are brothers and sisters in Christ! Please, do what you can to be here on Sunday,October 20!
