This Week at Calvary!
Hi Calvary Family,
What a blessing yesterday was to continue in our series, It's Easter... so, what? We were able to finish up Romans 6 as we explored together the themes Paul introduces of the old life in sin and the new life in Christ.
In Romans 6:15-23 we discovered five points Paul wanted to make:
- The Confusion Paul Assumes (15a)
- The Correction Paul Applies (15b-18)
- The Challange Paul Advances (19)
- The Contrast Paul Amplifies (20-22)
- The Conclusion Paul Argues (23)
The final verse of chapter 6, is often used as a salvation verse. However, in context, we see that Paul is really talking to Christians. He wants us to know that our old master gave us wages that resulted in death. But our new Master does not give us wages, but the free gift of Life! How amazing it is to live in grace!
As we think about new life we can't help but reflect on the new life that comes with the abundance of children! Mother's Day is right around the corner and we want to celebrate Moms! We will be having Mother's Day Brunch on May 8th from 10:00 am - 11:30 am in the Dinning Hall (Cafeteria). We hope this will be a refreshing time for Moms as they fellowship with one another!

I pray that you are able to live in the newness of life this week!
