Watching the End Credits – SK Preview for 052310

No one ever reads the credits of a movie unless they get to watch outtakes as the names scroll or if they hope there is an extra scene at the end.  It is ironic that the people who make the movie possible are generally ignored once the entertainment ends.

The lists of names in scripture often get treated the same way.  They seem boring, random, irrelevant, and listless (pun intended).  But lists of names in scripture are much more than just the odd scrolling of people who played small bit parts.  They are the recounting for eternity the people who God used mightily.

This week at Sovereign King, we get to look at a list of folks that Paul thought a great deal of in the church of Rome.  Despite the fact that some of those names are going to be hard to pronounce and a few of them we know little about, we hope to mine this list of names for great depths of encouragement because we will be reminded that God uses plain old ordinary folks like you and me.

Throw in the second week in a row with a baptism, and it should be a great Sunday.  I hope to see you all there.  If you would like more information, email Gordon at jgordonduncan@ahoo.com or call at 919-412-8161.  We meet each Sunday at 10:30am, and you can find directions to our space at http://www.sovereignkingpca.net/1.2.html.  As always, you can find out more about SK at www.skchurch.com.
