Washed in the Blood for the Rest of Your Life”

1 Corinthians 6:9-11, 19-20

Steps to Christ: “God does not regard all sins as of equal magnitude; there are degrees of guilt in His estimation, as well as in that of man; but however trifling this or that wrong act may seem in the eyes of men, no sin is small in the sight of God. Man’s judgment is partial, imperfect; but God estimates all things as they really are. The is despised and is told that his sin will exclude him from heaven; while pride, selfishness, and covetousness too often go unrebuked. But these are sins that are especially offensive to God; for they are contrary to the benevolence of His character, to that unselfish love which is the very atmosphere of the unfallen universe. He who falls into some of the grosser sins may feel a sense of his shame and poverty and his need of the grace of Christ; but pride feels no need, and so it closes the heart against Christ and the infinite blessings He came to give.” (30)

  •   1 Corinthians 6:20—“You were with a price.”
  •   Acts 20:28—“ . . . which [God] with His own blood.”
  •   1 Peter 1:18, 19—“ . . . you were redeemed . . . with the precious of Christ, a

    lamb without blemish or defect.”

  •   Hebrews 9:14—“How much more will the blood of Christ our consciences

    from acts that lead to death.”

  •   1 John 1:7—“ . . . the blood of Jesus His Son us from all sin.”
  •   Zechariah 13:1—“On that day a fountain will be opened . . . to them from sin

    and impurity.”

  •   Revelation 7:14—“ . . . they have washed their robes and made them white in the

    of the Lamb.”

Steps to Christ: “If you give yourself to [Christ], and accept Him as your Saviour, then, sinful as your life may have been, for His sake you are accounted righteous. Christ’s character stands in place of your character, and you are accepted before God just as if you had sinned.” (62)

“And that is what you were”

Love on the Move

Over the summer and fall of 2019 Pioneer underwent significant physical renovation—including a new roof and a major Sanctuary makeover. During the same time congregation leaders engaged in multiple conversations about our missional renovation—how does a faith community like Pioneer seriously engage and impact the people around us for Christ? From this dialogue emerged a fresh new expression of our Pioneer mission: "Love on the Move."
