Tomorrow, we'll be welcoming some new members in worship, which is always a highlight. Please come share your support. Our reading this evening is a reflection on one of the most important ideas in our faith: God saves us, not us. There is nothing we can do to make God love us; nothing we can do to earn our salvation. God already loves us and saves us from sin. We come to know that through faith, through trusting God. When we trust God we feel the assurance that we are loved and that the ruler and judge of creation is love, so everything will be alright. That's especially important to remember in our world, where rockets and bombs fall on innocent children tonight and people will go to bed hungry because we are too selfish to share. God saves us, and in the end love will win.
