Who You Say I Am
King of Kings
Pastoral Prayer Pastor Michael Best
Scripture Reading from 2 Corinthians 4:1–7
Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart. But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
Congregational Song Yet Not I, but through Christ in Me
2 Corinthians 3:7–18
Dr. Michael Reeves
Thank you for being here today! And thanks to all of you who got up early to cheer on the runners. You put a friendly face on our church for thousands of people to see and only eternity will reveal how the Lord used your ministry for His glory. I love the church family with which the Lord has blessed us!
I am out of town attending a pastors’ conference today. The good news is that I should return a better pastor. The bad news is that I will miss our guest preacher, Dr. Michael Reeves, a distinguished scholar and President of the Union School of Theology at the University of Oxford. We are thankful he is able to join us, and I know that you will be wonderfully blessed by his ministry of the Word this morning.
I look forward to being back next Sunday. Thank you for your prayers.
For His glory,
