Notes:

 

When you hear the term “Reckless Grace” what comes to mind?
Does it sound like an indictment against our gracious Heavenly Father? We don’t normally think of the term “reckless” positively,
but in using it as our Global Outreach Conference theme, we are highlighting the fact that God’s grace is so stunning, so extravagant, that it appears to sinners like us as reckless.

 

Why should He give so lavishly to sinners who deserve nothing?
When we grasp the awesomeness of what God offers us, it takes our breath away. Our prayer is that during this conference we will not only understand the magnitude of God’s grace more clearly, but also be challenged to become channels of that grace to those around us who do not know Him.

 

This morning we welcome Dr. Jerry Root of Wheaton College as our guest speaker. May his love for God and for those far from the Lord inspire us to greater faithfulness.

 

For His glory,

 

Bill Bertsche
