Presence: The Authority of Christ Come to Earth

Happy 17th Sunday after Pentecost!  

On Sunday we continue our series on Revelation and the vision of the church.  Last Sunday we began the 4 “P”s with Purpose, reflecting the importance of purpose for our relationship with God and our walk with God together as a church family.  This Sunday we’ll read through some sections of our Bible Study, from John’s visions about the Dragon, the two Beasts, the Lamb, demonic cavalry, swarms of unnatural locusts, and on and on!   As the presence and authority of these horrors come to earth, we’re encouraged by John to remember that we who worship the Lamb are to represent a different kind of authority: the authority of Christ.  Through our presence, we present a different narrative to the dragon, the beast, and their minions.   

See you on Sunday!
