Dear Covenant Church Family,

2 Timothy 2:20-22  “Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable.  Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.  So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.”

For the Lord’s Day 1.10.16

Dear Covenant Church Family,

Praise God that He has told us why things are the way they are in this world that we live in.  He did not leave us in the darkness groping about for answers to life’s deepest questions.  Genesis 3 sheds an enormous amount of light in regard to the evil in our world and how we must live accordingly.  I hope you are making plans to be at Covenant this coming Lord’s Day to worship the God who creates and loves and saves His people.  Glory be to God!!
