It is requested that all children under the age of five stay in our nursery
so there will be no distractions during the preaching of the Gospel.


Sovereign grace o’er sin abounding
Ransomed souls, the tidings swell
‘Tis a deep that knows no sounding
Who its breadth or length can tell?

Heirs of God, joint- heirs with Jesus
Long ere time its race begun
To His name eternal praises
O what wonders love hath done!

Who from Christ our souls can sever
Bound by everlasting bands
Once in Him, in Him forever
None can pluck us from His hands.

O such love, my soul, still ponder
Love so great, so rich, so free
Say, while lost in holy wonder
Why, O Lord, such love to me?

(Tune: “Jesus Calls Us”)

“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.” - Proverbs 15:1


WANTED: GOD SENT PREACHERS
“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith He unto His disciples, the harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His harvest.”
– Matthew 9: 36-38


As the Lord was moved with compassion, we should be moved with compassion. As He told us to pray that the Lord would send forth laborers into His harvest, we should make it a matter of prayer that He would raise up men to preach the Gospel in our day. While I would not want to influence anyone to be a preacher, I will be thrilled to see the Lord stir men up to preach His Gospel to fainting and scattered sheep. The great need of our day is God-called laborers into His harvest.

Christians might avoid much trouble if they would believe that God is able to make them happy without anything else. God has been depriving me of one blessing after another; but as every one was removed, He has come in and filled up its place. Now when I am a cripple and not able to move, I am happier, than ever I was in my life before or ever expected to be. If I had believed this twenty years ago, I might have been spared much anxiety. – Dr. Payson

TRUE SAVING FAITH
True saving faith throbs in a man’s pulse, it looks out of his eyes, it lights up his countenance, it softens his touch, it mellows his voice, it bows his head, it bends his knee, it opens his hand, it soft-pedals his tongue, it breaks his heart, it orders his steps, and gives him a hearing ear. He lives for Christ; and if necessary, he would die for Him.
- Pastor Henry Mahan

Preaching is not designed to teach us something new in every sermon – something we did not know before. Its main purpose is to put us in remembrance. – Pastor Milton Howard
