The Gospel & Politics | Sunday, November 1, 2020

This week’s focal passage:

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation. Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
– 1 Peter 2:9-17

Scattered Worship | Sunday, June 7, 2020

We’re no less the church when we’re scattered than we are when we’re gathered. While there’s nothing good in and of disease itself, we want Cedar City Church to embrace the interruptions and inconveniences that come along with the coronavirus as a sacred disruption in our personal discipleship. The Father longs for his people to worship him, not merely in a certain city, on a certain mountaintop, or in a certain building, but everywhere in spirit and in truth (John 4:21-24). May we demonstrate that in our homes and wherever we can (or can’t!) go over the coming weeks.
