Reflections on this week’s sermon:

  • How much do I recognize the ministry of the Holy Spirit in my life?
  • How can I be more responsive to the leading of the Holy Spirit in my life?
  • In what ways has God supplied me the strength to be a faithful Christian? How can I trust God more with giving me strength for the future?
2 Corinthians

24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— 26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
