The words ‘it was credited to him’ were written not for [Abraham] alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness – for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. (Romans 4:23-24)
This Sunday, we’re starting a series looking at a section of Paul’s letter to the Romans. The focus here is on the good news of God’s salvation of us, through Jesus. Paul uses the words ‘righteousness’ and ‘justification’ to describe the salvation: Christians are those who are ‘right’ with God. How do we get this righteousness? Can we ever lose it? How does it affect how we live?
You would be very welcome to join us at our 10:30am service in St Andrew, Cuffley or at 8:30am for a service of Holy Communion in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as look at God’s great gift of salvation.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service will also be streamed. This will start at 10:25am, and can be accessed directly via YouTube or Facebook, found on our website, and is advertised on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Our children’s church meets this Sunday morning in the Undercroft (underneath the main building). Children are welcome from 10:20, and will join us in the main part of the building at the end of the service.
