Bringing Many sons to Glory
10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings.
11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,
12 saying, “I will proclaim Your name to My brethren, In the midst of the congregation I will sing Your praise.”
13 And again, “I will put My trust in Him.” And again, “Behold, I and the children whom God has given Me.”
14 Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
15 and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.
16 For assuredly He does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendant of Abraham.
17 Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
18 For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.
Harvest is a little more than a month away… Sunday night, October 29… and that means we need candy…lots of it! We will need hundreds of bags of candy to make sure the kids can eat their fill. If you can help us out by purchasing a few Costco-size bags of candy, that would be awesome! There will be bins in the lobby and in the CentralKIDS building for you to drop the bags into. Or you can always stop by the church office during the week.
Concert of Prayer
Please join us next Sunday for a Concert of Prayer during our 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. services. We will have an extended time for worship and dedicated time to prayer for Central, our community, our country, and our world.
