Scripture Reading for Worship – August 17th

On Sunday worship at First Baptist Church of Hudson, we will be talking about God’s Gift of Love–that it is for everyone, free, with no strings attached. The gift of love that Paul describes “was poured into our hearts.” It is like an endless stream. It is plentiful and life enhancing.

Come and join us at First Baptist Church of Hudson, at 10:00 a.m. to listen to what the word of God has to say about God’s Gift of love.

Reading from Pauline Epistle:

Romans 5:1-11  Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,  2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.  3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;  4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.  5 And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.  6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.  7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.  8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!  10 For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!  11 Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

Blessed is the one…whose delight is in the law of the Lord

‭Psalm‬ ‭1‬:‭1-2‬ NIV
“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.”
