Bible Verse Sunday #18 & Palm Sunday

Today's verse is 1st Corinthians 1:8-9:

"God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord."

The ESV Study Bible has this to say about the verse:

"1:8-9 guiltless. There is no condemnation on the final day for those who, like the Corinthians, are in Christ Jesus (Rom. 8:1). They already have been justified and, in a sense, even sanctified (1 Cor. 6:11; cf. Rom. 5:1), so no one will be able to bring a charge against them at the judgement (Rom. 8:33). The Corinthians have a long way to go before their behavior matches their status before God (1 Cor. 3:2-3a), but Paul is confident that God, who is faithful, will make them what they should be."

Today is Palm Sunday, the day on which Jesus made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The pastor spoke about the event, and how it relates to things changing when Jesus comes into our lives. In the High School service, the youth pastor continued his lesson on the Beatitudes from last week.

After church, we went over to the house of one of my Bible Quiz coaches and once again assisted in stuffing eggs for a fund raiser. My dad even joined in. We have lots of eggs to stuff.
