Pandora’s Box
Rev. Benjamin Wines
Romans 5:1-11

We look forward to joining you in Worship this Sunday, starting at 11:00AM in the Sanctuary. You can also find our services online at the HVBC YouTube Channel. Today’s sermon is titled, “Pandora’s Box”. We will be reading from Romans 5:1-11, and our Call to Worship comes from Psalm 95.

Call to Worship Psalm 95:1-7
Leader: O come, let us sing to the Lord;
People: Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Leader: Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
People: Let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
Leader: For the Lord is a great God,
People: And a great King above all gods.
Leader: In his hand are the depths of the earth;
People: The heights of the mountains are his also.
Leader: The sea is his, for he made it,
People: And the dry land, which his hands have formed.
Leader: O come, let us worship and bow down,
People: Let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
Leader: For his is our God, and we are the people of his pasture,
People: And the sheep of his hand.

Questions for Further Reflection:
In this passage, Paul says that Christians have hope in part because of the Holy Spirit.
How does that reality push back against those who say hope is an evil that causes us to disengage from the world?
