This week’s readings are based on the “Running The Race” sermon from the On Your Marks series. This season, we want to focus on what it means to be the Church (God’s people). Slow down, read the text, and then let it read you…
"So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.”
2 Corinthians 5:16-19 (NLT)
Run With Reconciliation. The reason we can run the race set before us is because we have been reconciled with God through Jesus. In your own words, why is this so wonderful? How can you share the wonderful message of reconciliation this week?
