“As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, 5 you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” – 1 Peter 2:4-5,9-10
It seems like the world around is is falling apart. So much brokenness in the lives of those around us and let’s face it, in our own lives. Yet, there is one thing that brings hope, healing, restoration, holiness. That is Jesus Christ! He alone can fix the world in which we are facing. And fix it He will. But until then brothers and sisters, let us come together as Apostle Peter wrote in 1 Peter 2 as, “living stones” a “royal priesthood” who together, with one voice declare who Jesus is and what he has done for us even in the midst of the chaos and fear!
So, join us on Friday, August 18th at 7:00pm here at Encounter Church for a Night of Worship & Prayer, as we together seek Jesus through song, prayer, Scripture readings and testimonies.
Child care will be provided and we hope that you, your family and friends will come out for this event.
