Justly Justified

What is justification? God, motivated by grace, declares guilty people to be righteous. God is both just and the justifier, sending His son to be the atonement for our sin.

Praying for Our Children

The Lord’s Prayer gives guidance as to how we can pray for our children in our congregation. Pray to our loving Father that they will value God’s name as holy and have hearts that desire the Savior’s rule around the globe. Ask that they will live in obedience to God’s word and have sufficient energy to serve God with contentment and thankfulness. Pray that the children will seek daily forgiveness and be led away from temptation. Above all just be faithful to pray!

What Jesus Said on the Cross

On the cross, Jesus prayed for the pardon of sinners and gave His life to purchase their forgiveness. He promised the repentant thief that he would be with Him that day in Paradise. He demonstrated compassion for Mary, bore the wrath of God for our sins, and accomplished our salvation once and for all. After listening to Christ’s statements from the cross and observing Him die, the centurion exclaimed, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” Mark 15:39b (ESV)
The Gospel of Mark

Appointing of the Twelve

The twelve apostles, specially called by Jesus in Mark 3:13-19, became the foundation of the church. They preached the Gospel with the authority given to them by Jesus. Like the apostles, we are to be devoted to spending time with Christ — for us, this happens through prayer and reading of the Scriptures. We are ordinary people who are part of God’s plan to spread the Gospel throughout the Earth.
