Genesis 12:1-3 The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.“I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you;I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse;and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Galatians 3:7-9, 13-14 Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance Read more
Genesis 3:14-15 So the LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,“Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals!You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers;he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” Genesis 4:25 (ESV) And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and called his name Seth, for she said, “God has appointed for me another offspring instead of Abel, for Cain killed Read more
Luke 24:13-27 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him. He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?”They stood still, their faces downcast. One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?” “What things?” he asked.“About Jesus of Nazareth,” they Read more
We moved from India to the US in September 2013 and began attending GRC in October. Our first vivid memory of Thanksgiving revolves around the warm invitation we received from the Hanna family. Since then, our dear friends, the Mathews, graciously welcomed us into their family circle. For the past decade, we've been part of their Thanksgiving tradition, gathering at their home. It's been a wonderful experience where we've enjoyed a unique twist on the traditional feast - an Indian (masala) turkey that's been a delightful treat.For our family, this commemoration holds a unique significance, steeped in its historical roots Read more
The Grace Of Liberality “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their Read more
Have you heard this before: "How hypocritical for Christians to want abortion to be criminalized, but are unwilling to take care of the unwanted babies after birth….Christians only care about the babies until they are born.”Ouch, right? I don’t know about you, but this has a painful ring of truth for me. As one who has taken a few steps to fight for the lives of the unborn, I had never really focused on supporting the life of the mother and her baby after his/her birth–until about 3 years ago. That was when Stan and I got involved with Lighthouse Read more
Hello GRC! This past Sunday during the adult Sunday School hour, attendees could ask any question of GRC’s elders (our Session).  Separately, some of us have gotten questions like “What’s GRC’s position on Israel and Hamas?”  Sometimes underneath a question like that is this curiosity (or demand): “What side are you taking?”  For some people, it’s intended as a litmus test for allegiance to a church.  For others, it's a request for guidance: “Which side should I take?”  But unless the issue is explicitly laid out in Scripture and relates to the heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (and Read more
“Experiencing the joy of the Gospel with the kids.” “Helping kids learn more about Jesus’ tremendous love.” “Connecting with the kids and sharing the good news about Jesus.” “Watching the kids fall in love with Jesus.”   These were some of the many responses our Grace Kids teachers gave when asked what they were looking forward to the most in teaching our kids this year.  We have a fantastic team that makes Grace Kids a joyful ministry of sharing the Gospel with our children at Grace Redeemer.  Our teachers live out the sentiment of the apostle John in 3 John Read more
Yall, I live a loud life. At the office, I sit in a tornado of sound, with televisions blaring, newscasters loudly enunciating, breaking news teams chittering and my computer and phones endlessly dinging for attention. When big news breaks, the whole buzz breaks into a roar.  It’s not any quieter in my head. My inner monologue runs hot, constantly collecting tasks to be completed and problems to solve. I write down both daily and big-picture to-do lists, just to dull some of the resounding.  It’s loud in my heart, too. The Lord has given me many roles — from wife Read more
Take a minute to look back on your life so many people who you thought would be in your life forever are no longer in it? How many relationships you thought would never change have changed... for better or worse. As cynical as this sounds, I saw the limitations of human relationships at a young age. The brevity of people's devotion to me and mine to them. So in every new setting, I would find one or two people and choose to invest in them. I wouldn't neglect the others, but I wasn't going to let my emotional connection Read more
