WELCOME TO GCC
Join us this Sunday! Two services offered, 9:00 and 10:45 a.m.
This Week's Teaching:
“The Power of the Persistent”
This week we will continue our series on the parables of Jesus. The scripture for the week is Luke 18:1-8.
Have you ever been so exhausted you asked yourself, “Why am I doing this? Why should I keep trudging through this life?” Well, you are not alone. In fact, these questions are interestingly fundamental to the day to day life of the Christian – they are a sobering inquiry of one’s faith. They ponder Jesus’ instruction that we should always pray and not give up? Well, why?
Jesus made only a few thought provoking statements (sarcasm, of course), one of which is “whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it” (Lk17:33). You see, we lose our lives as we go, one decision at a time. Yet conversely, we gain the life of our Savior, Jesus Christ, one moment, one prayer, one action at a time… and we realize… no matter our modern culture or political climate or even looming persecution, life in Christ is beautiful. It is victorious!
Join us this Sunday as we consider Christ’s parable of the persistent widow and seek His thoughts of our enduring whys.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
