To the Sojourners in Christ gathered in Ruston,
May his grace be near to you and help your heart be satisfied in Christ. I pray you are all well and are prepared for tomorrow's stormy forecast. I was at Presbytery yesterday and heard strong words of hope and confidence for the PCA.
First, in Sunday School we continue our series: Christology through Heresy. This week we will look at some movements that mixed legalism with bad Christology, which is always a recipe for a creative heresy.
In worship, we continue in our series by turning to Matthew 17:14–27. The passage has a strong message for children, adults, those who like governments, those who don't like government, and those who like fishing stories. I am pretty sure that is inclusive of all people. Something quite striking about the scene is how little it is used in modern discussions of Christian conduct. I remind that as politics in America continues to rage, we have a sure, fixed hope. We worship a sure and fixed king. We have nothing to fear, but heartfelt reverence for our triune God. So, come to be built up and equipped for this life and the next.
