Sunday Preview: 6.11.17

This Sunday at CCC…

It’ s hard to believe we’ll be wrapping up our series on the parables this Sunday! Though there are many more parables we could explore, it’s fitting that we end with a parable that reminds us of the best place we can be with God – forgiven! Forgiveness is something we all need, isn’t it? Because we all fail. Forgiveness is a value we share, but it’s a concept that’s incredibly difficult to embody and embrace.

Every Christian story begins with God’s gracious forgiveness that we don’t deserve. And, frankly, that story never ends. Yet our performance as religious people can tempt us to think God now accepts us based on the good things we do, rather than on the gracious work He has done. Then, if that’s not bad enough, we can dangerously assume that others don’t deserve forgiveness because they haven’t earned it (like we have!).

Ever been there? Well, if you have, this Sunday will be a great reminder for us to return to the place where our story began. We end our series with a reminder of the  true basis of our forgiveness – God’s grace and mercy. As we will see, it’s the only place of safety. It’s the only place we should long to be. Join us this Sunday as we explore Luke 18:9-14, the Parable of the Pharisee & the Tax Collector, together.
