The beauty of a diamond is set on display through the refraction of light through its many facets. The Church is like a diamond in that its many local expressions display the beauty of God’s love for mankind throughout the world. Likewise, each local church is called to display God’s love to others as Christians live their lives in response to the love of God. There is coming a day when the song of the redeemed will be sung with voices from every nation, tribe, and tongue. Until that day, we are to continue the mission of making and maturing disciples of Jesus Christ by living and proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone God places in our path. With our focus upon loving like Jesus, this means we should welcome anyone who will follow Jesus. Please join us for worship this Sunday! Our singing will focus upon praising God for Who He is and for what He has done through His Son Jesus Christ. In preparation for receiving God’s Word through the sermon, please meditate on the many ways Jesus expressed His love to those whom many would have overlooked or pronounced unworthy.
