Scripture Reading:  Exodus 2.23-3.6

Christ Community Family,

Thank you.  Thank you to AJ Babel for preaching this past Lord’s Day – listen to his sermon HERE.  Thank you to the elders for encouraging me to remain in the mud and mountains of Doe River Gorge with Nater for our Father-Son-Challenge last weekend.  Thank you to Kori for navigating Nate/my time away with the complexity of 5 children and 1 parent.  Thank you to our weekly Lord’s Day volunteers who work with Covenant Kids, Nursery, and manage the variegated responsibilities of the sound system, door managing, opening/closing our building.   Thank you for grieving with and praying for our former pastor Steve and Cindy with the devastating cancer diagnosis for Cindy.  I am in communication with Steve and we will seek to keep you informed of ways we can pray/serve.  Thank you for our Community Group leaders and hosts for enabling biblical hospitality to be the ethos of Christ Community Church.  Don’t forget to join in the groups as they launch this/next week!  Groups can be found HERE.  Thank you to God for the JOY we are experiencing as his body who bear NO GUILT BEFORE HIM as we are hidden in Christ and are free to confess our weaknesses and need, even as we daily share one another’s joys and bear one another’s pain until the day there is no more.  Oh, and thank you to God for the Fall in East Tennessee.
Thank you to God for the narrative of redemption that has a plotline of FREEDOM FROM SLAVERY.
We return to our study of Exodus this upcoming Lord’s Day as we examine how God meets our groaning with HIS GLORY!
I encourage you to read the text before Sunday – Exodus 2.23-3.6.
Please allow me to encourage you to share with your friends the meaning of Exodus – how God assures our escape from the burden of our broken world of sin and enslavement through his glory, his gospel for our good.  It is a paradigm of life for a disciple of Jesus.   If you know friends who are broken by the burdens of this world and are not in a church that is regularly wrestling with the deep promises and acts of our redeeming God and the cost to follow Jesus who leads us “out of Egypt”, I encourage you to bring them with you on the Lord’s Day.  My prayer is that our trek through Exodus will set you and an increasing motley crew of disciples FREE… totally free … to enjoy the cost of following the true King.
With much love,
Pastor Jimothy
