Getting Ready for Sunday February 12 at The Crossing

This week we continue our sermon series, “Risking Reality,” as Dave Cover preaches a sermon entitled, “To Disbelieve Takes a Lot of Faith” from Hebrews 11:1, 3, 6. The Scripture reads,

1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

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).
