Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

Preaching Jesus Christ 9/27/19

Dear River Reach Family,

“And we preach to you the good news of the promise made to the fathers, 33 that God has fulfilled this promise to our children in that He raised up Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, ‘YOU ARE MY SON; TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU.’

Acts 13:32-33

The goal of our ministry efforts is to point people to Jesus Christ! (Acts 13:32-33) The Holy Spirit sends us on mission to connect with the lives of people to share the Gospel with them (Acts 13:2). In our passage for this Sunday morning we will hear Paul preach for the very first time. The theme of his message will be the greatest theme of all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ! We preach Christ to sinners because in Christ alone hope is found (Acts 13:38-39). In Christ sinners are forgiven! In Christ sinners are freed from bondage to their sin! Let’s listen to Paul’s Gospel message and find the motivation to share that same message with ourselves and others.

Sermon: “Preaching Jesus Christ” – Acts 13:14-43

Upcoming Sunday Evening Bible Study: The God Who Hears

On Sunday evening October 6th we will begin our new study on prayer through the book, The God Who Hears. I have a few books available if you want one, or you may order your own book. If you do order I would suggest saving money and buying one of the many used copies available. I’m looking forward to how the Lord will use this study to strengthen our prayer lives.
