Dear Mosaic Family,
Do you ever get to a passage of Scripture that is hard to understand? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! In 2 Peter 3:15-17, Peter confessed that some of the things Paul wrote in his letters were “hard to understand.” In that same passage, however, he also confessed that these letters were “Scripture.”
2 Timothy 3:16 tells us, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.” Studying Scripture can be hard work, but it’s always worth the effort.
This week’s text is one of the most puzzling in Scripture, but it’s also filled with beautiful truth and wisdom. If you’ve ever read 1 Corinthians 11 and been left thinking, “what on earth is Paul talking about?” then hopefully we can shed some light on the passage this weekend.
Paul talks about gender, marriage, head covering, and hair styles. It all seems very strange at first, but at the heart of this passage is the story of the Gospel. It is the story of a Father who loved the world to such an extent that He gave his only Son to save His people from eternal death. It is the story of Jesus the Groom, who laid down his life his life and made the ultimate sacrifice, to redeem his beloved bride, the Church.
Please join us at one of our services this Sunday. We also invited everyone to join us in the downstairs hall at the Temple after the 11:15am service for a baptism celebration!
Praying for you,
