Glorify God, Live Together, Make Disciples

Preparing for this Sunday at Emmaus

This Sunday morning we will gather together in the name of Christ to encourage one another and make much of him. Below you will find our sermon information as well as the liturgy for the morning. Please take some time to review the passage and prayerfully prepare for our time together.

The sermon will focus on Romans 6. This is a crucial passage of Scripture for the believer to go back to and be reminded of the powerful new life that God has worked in us. If you’ve every asked how grace relates to law, this will help you. If you’ve ever wondered how or if you have strength to overcome sin, this will help you. If you’ve ever wondered why you still sin even though you are a Christian, this will help you. We will plan to go through the whole chapter.

Main Point: As believers our relationship to sin has changed because of the work of Christ.

Outline: How the reign of grace dethrones the reign of sin and death.
