On Sunday July 10, 2016 at 11:00 AM the message "The Sin of the Chosen People" was given by Minister Christine Lee at Gratia Community Church in Sioux Falls, SD. This message was taken from Romans 2:1-11, Matthew 7:2-5 and II Peter 3:9.
This passage is a warning against those that think they are righteous and condemn others that are committing sin. They fail to apply God's commandment of not sinning to themselves and end up being hypocrites.
Christine shared this is a warning against those that know God's Word well, but are despising His grace and mercy by continuing to break His laws. Until they repent they are storing up God's wrath against them. According to verse seven God will reward those "who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honor and immortality". Everyone will give and account for their actions and words because God judge without any favoritism.
Prayers were held for the needs of the members including 3 people that hadn't come before.
After reflection and sharing everyone had lunch and fellowship in the conference room.
