Reflections for this week’s sermon:

  • What are some of the challenges to CCC’s Ministry of Mercy in DC?
  • What makes us hesitate or be afraid to reach out to the helpless around us?
  • Let’s think on how God blessed us with generous mercy. Now, who could we share that same kind of mercy with this week?
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.
