Getting Ready for Sunday February 7th at The Crossing

Prepare

Keith Simon continues our series in the Gospel of John this week with a sermon entitled, “Jesus is Our Light in a Dark World” from John 8:12. The Scripture reads,

12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

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).
