Pastor Barron’s sermon for this Lord’s Day is titled, “Receiving The Whole Christ.” His text is John 16: 16-33.
Following the sermon, we will celebrate the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. Communion is a special act of worship when we remember Jesus’ giving of His life for us, His special presence in this meal, and our looking forward to His physical return at which time we celebrate the marriage supper together.
Those who have been baptized and have made a profession of faith and have entered into communion with Christ in the visible church are invited to participate.

Effectual calling is the work of God’s almighty power and grace, whereby (out of his free and special love to his elect, and from nothing in them moving him thereunto) he doth, in his accepted time, invite and draw them to Jesus Christ, by his Word and Spirit; savingly enlightening their minds, renewing and powerfully determining their wills, so as they (although in themselves dead in sin) are hereby made willing and able freely to answer his call, and to accept and embrace the grace offered and conveyed therein.
A. Justifying faith is a saving grace, wrought in the heart of a sinner by the Spirit and Word of God, whereby he, being convinced of his sin and misery, and of the disability in himself and all other creatures to recover him out of his lost condition, not only assenteth to the truth of the promise of the gospel, but receiveth and resteth upon Christ and his righteousness, therein held forth, for pardon of sin, and for the accepting and accounting of his person righteous in the sight of God for salvation.
God Remembers Hannah: Let us rejoice today that the Lord will never fail to remember us if we have rested in Jesus alone for salvation. (Tabletalk Magazine, March 29, page 64).
