The Refuge

I preached from Hebrews 4:14-16 yesterday.  My favorite part of the text is an invite to "approach the throne of grace with confidence." 

As the church, we are to extend that same invite to others.  And just as the invite is available to us before and after we've entered into a meaningful relationsihp with Christ, the church (not to state the obvious, but the church is the people, not the building) is to invite others into the church to taste that same grace.

So the main idea was: The church is to be a refuge for sinners not a social club for saints. 

For the entire message, you can go here.

May we be the kind of people that let the church be a refuge for sinners, not a social club for saints.
