Getting Ready for Sunday May 28 at The Crossing

This week Shay Roush preaches a sermon entitled, “A Heroine of the Faith” from Esther. The book is too large to put it all in this blog post, but if you have some time, I would say sit down and read the whole thing through. It’s a great, engrossing story, and will take you about 15–20 minutes.

You can watch this great video that tells the story of Esther, complete with drawings, part of The Bible Project (which is worth checking out for all its other amazing videos).

 

Here’s our song list for this Sunday (with links to lyrics and music):

This week we continue our sermon series, “Risking Reality,” as Dave Cover preaches a sermon entitled, “Living into God’s Better Story” from Hebrews 11:39–40. The Scripture reads,

39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, 40 since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.

We will take communion together this Sunday. God gives us communion to feed our faith, to help us trust in Christ’s death on our behalf. That means we have to reflect on why Christ died for us. We have to look again at ourselves and recognize our sin and ask God for forgiveness. A great way to get ready for communion, therefore, is to take some time this weekend to ask God to show you if there’s any sin in your life that you’re not seeing. Ask him for forgiveness. And if there are things you need to put right, in keeping with repentance, take the time today or this weekend to do that (e.g., Matt 5:23–24).

This week as we celebrate Easter, Keith Simon preaches a sermon entitled, “The Best Argument for Christianity” from 1 Corinthians 15:3–8. The Scripture reads,

3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve. 6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, 8 and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.
