Lexington Campus Family!
Is there anything about you that blows the minds of your family members? For me it is my crazy love of winter and especially snow! When we lived in Texas people thought we were insane to miss the snow and seasons like we did. In Texas we had two seasons… hot and hotter. So my family and I were so blessed by the snow this week.
It got me thinking about Isaiah 1:18 that says, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be like wool.” This is such a beautiful picture of the grace and mercy of God. I would encourage you to read all of Isaiah 1 sometime this week. In this chapter God is pleading with His people to simply reason with Him and repent from their wicked ways. I’m so thankful for the relentless pursuit of grace that God has pursued me with. I have had so much sin, apathy, and iniquity in my life and yet God says to you and I: if we will just come to Him, admit our sin, and need for His mercy, He will wash us with His blood. His blood will wash all of that sin, apathy, and iniquity away and will make us pure before God. We will be clothed in the righteousness of Jesus!
In fact, God makes us a promise which says, “If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose].” (1 John 1:9, AMP) I’m so thankful for this promise!
Be sure to mark your calendar for an exciting event taking place at our campus in 2021! We will be launching monthly prayer events at Parkside Theatre on the first Thursday of every month starting January 7th from 6:30pm–7:30pm! We would love to see you at these monthly events.
The Best Is Yet To Come!
