Sundays 7:30 am Channel 27 WKYT
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.

Sing ye saints, admire and wonder
Jesus’ matchless love adore
Sing for Sinai’s awful thunder
Shall upon thee burst no more
Sing, in spite of Satan’s lying
Sing, though sins are black and large
Sing, for Jesus, by His dying
Set you free from every charge.

Sing, thou sense and canal reason
Fain would stop the joyful song
Sing, and count it highest treason
For a saint to hold his tongue
Sing aloud, whose holy calling
Your election clearly shows
Sing, nor fear a final falling
Jesus’ love no changes knows.

Sing, for you shall heaven inherit
Sing, and ne’er the song be done
Sing, for He alone is worth it
He our sins did all atone
Sing aloud among God’s people
In your heart when all alone
Sing to Father, Son and Spirit
One and three, and three in One.

(Tune: “Come Thou Fount” p. 17)

“Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.” - Proverbs 16:8

KNOWLEDGE
John says to every believer, “But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things”( I John 2:20), and “Ye need not that any man should teach you” (I John 2:27). What does John mean? When you know Christ, you know all things. In knowing Him, we know all things intuitively, because we know Him. When we hear the Truth, we know it is true because we already knew it in its essence because of our knowing Him. We know the Bible is God’s Word because we know His voice. If you know Him, you don’t need to be convinced you are a sinner. You know! You know all He died for must be saved because of who died. You know He is incapable of failure and His will must come to pass. You may not have heard all things as yet, but you know all things because you know Him. Knowing that “Christ is all” we know all! That is why a believer cannot finally be seduced by error. He knows all things.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE SLIP?
Have you ever slipped on ice? Before you hit the ground, you know you are in for a painful fall, and there is not one thing you can do to prevent it. Have you ever felt like you slipped and fell into sin? It happens so quickly, and you could feel yourself falling? David said, “When I said, my foot slippeth: thy mercy O Lord, held me up” (Psalm 94:18). What a blessing of grace. When the believer’s foot slips, we fall into the hands of mercy!
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” What a promise! What a glorious inheritance! What a blessed comfort! Walk in it, believer; lie down upon it; trust in it; rest upon it; it will do for all the days of your life and be a soft pillow for your death! When the news is not good, when your body is tired, when disappointments and doubts fill your mind, when the flesh is weary and weak and you lie upon your bed staring into the sleepless darkness asking yourself, “What shall I do?” Hum to yourself these blessed words, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” These words will be like a lullaby to your soul, and you will find rest. – Pastor Henry Mahan

“Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortable to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for her sin” (Isaiah 40:1-2). My desire is to comfort God’s people. It is also my desire to see the lost saved. Isn’t it amazing how the same message of Christ and Him crucified, both saves the lost and comforts God’s elect? There is only one way to be saved, there is only one way to be comforted and that is by the preaching of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. – Pastor David Eddmenson

True religion and worship originates with God and is sustained and carried on by the sovereign power of the Holy Spirit. It is simple, serious and Scriptural. Much of modern religion and worship has its origin in the flesh. It consists of fleshly preachers, who preach flesh-honoring messages, which are received in fleshly wisdom. Their so-called worship or praise services are carried out in their own feeble fleshly power and are designed for the purpose of recharging their own little religious batteries. The preacher is little more than a religious cheerleader, whose business it is to entertain and excite his fan club.
