Gender Roles, Modest Worship
Our culture sinfully distorts gender and the gender roles that God laid out at the beginning of creation. Unfortunately, in some ways the church has gone right along with the world, and we have allowed our own ideas of these issues to be formed more by society than God's Word. God made us different for a reason, and if we fail to recognize and encourage the differences in the church, we are liable to confuse further an already confused world. May God grant us the grace to recognize and rejoice in the differences.
This Sunday at Liberty we will have a full day. In the Sunday school hour, we will continue to consider our salvation as we look at our adoption in Christ. In the morning worship, we will look at 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 and Paul's discussion of gender and modesty in our Being the Body series in 1 Corinthians. Then in the evening worship Jason O'Sullivan will encourage us with a reminder of God's powerful sovereignty from 1 Chronicles 1. I hope to see you there as we worship together as the body of Christ.
