Greeting and Announcements

Meditation
“Just as Christ conducted Himself in respect to the law, so likewise He proclaimed the gospel as a prophet. Christ is the author of the gospel, ‘For the law was given by Moses, grace and truth came by Jesus Christ’ (John 1:17). Christ is also the messenger of the gospel. ‘And came and preached peace to you’ (Eph. 2:17). Furthermore, Christ is the object of the gospel. ‘But we preach Christ crucified’ (1 Cor. 1:23). For this reason, the gospel is called the gospel of Christ (Rom. 1:16).”
