Hopefully This Will Whet Your Appetite

We will miss worshiping with our Bethel family this Sunday!

Mike Osborne from Trinity Church of Smyrna will be preaching from the book of Galatians. He will focus your attention on Gal. 3:1-5, but will unpack the theme of "union with Christ" from other parts of Galatians as well.

For Christians, the implications of our union with Christ are manifold. It is a precious and powerful doctrine. I encourage you to reflect on this same theme, in preparation for Sunday's message, by meditating on Ephesians 1:3-14. Notice how many times the phrases 'in Christ', 'in him', and 'in the Beloved' show up. And notice what is associated with those phrases.

I read this quote today from Russell Moore's new book Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ. If that quote doesn't whet your appetite for more on "union with Christ," I don't know what will.
