If we choose to live for Christ, we live no longer for ourselves. This is what is so counter-cultural, radical, and difficult about the Gospel. The old has passed away; everything is made new.
Welcome to First Baptist Church of Pendleton!
This week marks our first live Sunday morning worship service (albeit outdoors in the parking lot) since March.
Drawing from 2 Corinthians 5:11-21, Pastor Jennifer Rygg starts by asking “When have you had a life-changing experience?… a marriage, the end of a marriage?… the birth of a child, the death of a spouse?… this global pandemic has been life-changing.” The Apostle Paul writes that the death of Jesus is a life-changing event for us, and three phrases from this passage define us as disciples of Jesus: “The love of Christ urges us on.” That is our motivation, our strength, our power. “Jesus died for all.” No exceptions, no limitations. This is not dependent on us. All people are valuable to God. “We live no longer for ourselves.” If we choose to live for Christ, we live no longer for ourselves. This is what is so counter-cultural, radical, and difficult about the Gospel. The old has passed away; everything is made new.
