David preaches on the New Covenant in Jeremiah 31, which is fulfilled in Jesus Christ, who is the New Covenant, the crowning achievement of God’s merciful, gracious redemption of the world. The John passage deals with the necessity of a seed to be planted and die as a seed in order for it to be transformed into a healthy plant that produces fruit. This is a powerful metaphor of what a Christian must go through to become one: we die with Christ to the power of sin and death and are raised with him as a new creation capable of great mercy, love, and empathy.
We are so grateful for the generous contributions to help the Raleigh Dream Center.Thanks to you, we collected $765.00, which turned into hundreds of canned items, diapers, and wipes - wow! And add to that a donation of $78 to their food pantry. The center operates a mobile food pantry and a food warehouse, which provides nearly 40,000 pounds of food a week to local communities.
