Join us this Sunday at 9:30am, as we continue our series called, The Gospel: The Story of a Redeeming God. This Sunday, Larry Annes will unpack for us the amazing, indescribable, unconditional, mind-blowing, unshakeable love of God.
Jeremiah 31:3 reads: "Long ago the Lord said to Israel: 'I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself'."
In commenting on this verse, the Dutch theologian, Geerhardus Vos, once wrote: "The best proof that He will never cease to love us lies in that He never began." If God loves you eternally, there was never a time when that love began, so there will never be a time when that love ends. It is an eternal, everlasting love. There was never a moment in time when God didn't love us. He has loved us eternally. He has forever loved us and will forever love us.
On days when it doesn't feel like it...you are eternally loved by God.
When you are plagued by doubt...you are eternally loved by God.
When his promises seem absent and he seems distant...you are eternally loved by God.
When you feel alone and misunderstood...you are eternally loved by God.
On you best day and in your darkest moment...you are eternally loved by God.
His eternal love is your foundation. Live in this hope.
Join us at 9:30am, as we continue our deep-dive into the nature, character and love of God; the person of Jesus Christ; the scope of salvation; and the finality of eternity. A journey that will help us discover our own place in the gospel story and will fuel a passion to point others to the work of Christ in our own lives.
As we gather for our in-person service, Parkside church staff and leadership will be wearing masks and we are asking everyone to do the same. Please consider joining us this weekend at 9:30am...and don't forget your mask!
Thanks in advance for being a church that values prayer.
See you Sunday!
Doug Boyd - Sr. Pastor
