Today’s lecture | Church reloaded: gratitude 

I had a very interesting conversation with a cab driver recently who was a Muslim. 

Unlike most ‘Christians’, this man had taken his time to research all major faiths in the world. 

So with all this knowledge at his disposal he asked me a salient question. He said: “If Jesus’ death meant that we are delivered from all: past, present and future sins; does that mean we just do whatever we please?”

Dear friends this question is the inspiration behind tonight’s lecture under our Church Reloaded series, entitled: gratitude.

With this in mind, what did Paul mean when he wrote asking his friends in Rome to “offer themselves as a living sacrifice”?

He even went further to explain that it was “our reasonable service after all that Christ had done for us” (Rom. 12:1-2).

Since we are not expected to payback anything for salvation – as it’s a free will gift, and even if we were it is impossible to pay back… What do we do?

Join us if you can as we explore these and other questions: (6:00-7:30)pm.
