Welcome to Hope Talk
Lord willing, we will celebrate baptism this Sunday either at our home or at PGBC. Baptism. Celebration. Fellowship. Stories of God’s grace. Reminders of transformation. Worship. Foundation. Joy! All this is on Sunday as we meet to give thanks to God for His providential work and provisional care for all His children. Jesus was 30 when He was baptized without the admission of sin and only the need to fulfill all righteousness (Mt.3:15) – John the Baptist agreed. He knew there was no need for repentance and his was a baptism of repentance so why did the Son of God, perfect, without sin, and equal to God be baptized by a sinful, needy, and fallen individual? It was part of the active obedience of Christ that accomplished our salvation. He did all things right. As He led the way forward, we follow with joy and celebration proclaiming the work of God in our hearts. So we will hear testimonies of God’s deep and abiding grace confronting and changing individuals with a proven life of grace and goodness. We know these people. We have watched them and rejoiced with them in their walking the path God has put before them and us with them. Please pray for Sunday that we will enjoy the manifest presence of God as we view and focus on His mighty works. Also remember to bring all kinds of food to bless others with as we meet at our home… kids bring swimsuits to enjoy the pool afterwards.
