Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. (1 Corinthians 5:8)
Paul’s appeal to Christians is to live holy lives, as God’s holy people. Because of God’s goodness to us, Christians are to be those who live differently - we are to live according to God’s pattern, not our own.
Our approach to how we live in relationship to others, to possessions, and to God is to be different. What would that look like for us? How are we to be different? Why should we be different?
You would be very welcome to join us at 10:30am in St Andrew, Cuffley, or at 8:30am in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we continue to see what it means to live as God’s holy people.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service will also be streamed. This will start at 10:25am, and can be accessed directly via Facebook or YouTube, found on our website, and is advertised on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
If you want to catch up with last week’s sermon, it’s available to listen to via SoundCloud.
