Midweek Update: Feb. 2, 2023

Dear Faith Community Church Family,

One of the most comforting truths that we see in the book of Hebrews is that Jesus is with us and for us in the Christian life. In other words, when we believe in Jesus, we are given a Savior who not only covers our sin with his own blood, but also actively helps us and aids us in every part of our Christian journey. Hebrews 2:18 says, “For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.” Jesus himself was tempted, yet he was victorious over sin in every instance. Today if you are tempted to sin, to despair, to anger, to pride–turn to Jesus, our Savior, who lives to help his redeemed people. Our passage for this Sunday is Hebrews 2:10-18.

This Sunday we will join together for the Lord’s Supper. Please prepare your hearts for this special covenantal meal through prayer and confession before Sunday’s service.
