Law and Gospel

No matter what community you live in, the needs are the same. These needs may not be what you think they are. What we all need is, first of all, the law to confront us in our sin. We need to hear that we aren't perfect and that we can't live our lives on our own. But, most importantly, we need to hear the Gospel so that we can be assured that our sins are truly forgiven by the shed blood of Jesus and that our lives have meaning and purpose and lastly that we are a part of something bigger than ourselves. May God help us understand the Christian faith in its purity and power.
