August Proclaimer

View or download the August Proclaimer Here Pastor’s Paragraph When God asked Abraham to give up his only son, to place on the altar the one son that he had through which God had promised would come a nation too large to count, Abraham willingly obeyed God.

LENT: VISUAL SYMBOLS OF WORSHIP During the 40 days of Lent, Christians around the globe remember the sacrifices of Jesus Christ – in setting aside His eternal nature to become human; and in His willing submission of His will in deference to His Father’s will, becoming “obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” (Phil. 2:8, ESV).
