Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It was a joy to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior with you on Sunday. Because of the resurrection of Jesus, we have been freed from our sins and have been given an unfailing hope. We serve a living Savior, who is “the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth” (Revelation 1:5). This Sunday we return to our series in the book of Hebrews, The Glory of Christ. Our passage for this Sunday is Hebrews 4:14-16.
