012 – For the City Weekend (Romans: A Life of Faith)
In the second half of chapter eight, Paul reminds us that God has adopted us into his family as his heirs. Our identity is not based on anything that we have done, but rather on what God has done and who he says we are in Him. Embracing this gift of grace means that we can fearlessly enter into the family business of God: working towards the renewal of all things.
Pastor Brad shares some very practical ways that we, as a church, want to do this in the next 18 months. We are called to invest in ourselves and our relationship with God, growing in spiritual formation. We are called to invest in the church, forming relationships and being willing to serve and give of our time and resources. Lastly, we are called to be for our city, working to positively impact the culture and well-being of our neighborhoods and the people who inhabit them.
