Getting Ready for Sunday April 30 at The Crossing

This week we continue our sermon series, “Risking Reality,” as Keith Simon preaches a sermon entitled, “Could God Use You?” from Hebrews 11. Given the size of the passage, we will simply link to the whole chapter.

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).

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