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.
HYMN FOR THE DAY
O Jesus, Saviour of the lost
My rock and hiding place
By storms of sin and sorrow toss’d
I seek Thy sheltering grace.
Guilty, forgive me Lord, I cry
Pursued by foes I come
A sinner, save me, or I die
An outcast, take me home.
Once safe in Thine almighty arms
Let storms come on again
There danger never, never harms
There death itself is gain.
And when I stand before Thy throne
And all Thy glory see
Still be my righteousness alone
To hide myself in Thee.
(Tune: “My Faith has Found a Resting Place” p. 228)

“Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips. – Proverbs 27:2
“Take heed to yourselves: if thy brother trespass against thee: rebuke him: and if he repent, forgive him.” - Luke 17:3
When our brother trespasses against us, we are the ones in danger. We will be misrepresented, misunderstood, and even slandered. There will be injustices and hurt feelings. We are in danger of not having a forgiving spirit and harboring ill will and resentment! Take heed to yourselves! The only part of the disciples prayer that the Lord commented on was the part about forgiving our brother. “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: but if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your heavenly Father forgive your trespasses” (Matthew 6:14-15).
What a blessing of grace when we are enabled to forgive. At no time do we demonstrate more likeness to Christ then when we forgive those who have wronged us. “Be ye kind, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32).
Noah went into the ark BEFORE ONE DROP OF WATER FELL! If he had waited until the rain commenced, he would have been joined by thousands of false converts. True faith believes the promises of God and the warnings of God BEFORE they come to pass. A refuge built or entered during the storm is usually forsaken when the sun shines again. Be wary of those who seek the Lord when their flesh is pained.
- Pastor Henry Mahan
Any ministry which does not have for its foundation the absolute and sovereign rule and reign of God in Christ Jesus, is a false ministry! The foundation of all true spiritual knowledge is the knowledge of the sovereign, eternal God of the Bible! (John 17:2-3; I John 5:20)
- Pastor Maurice Montgomery
I do not believe that we can preach the Gospel, if we do not preach justification by faith, without works; nor unless we preach the sovereignty of God in His dispensation of grace; nor unless we exalt the electing, unchangeable, eternal, immutable, conquering love of Jehovah; nor unless we base it upon the peculiar redemption which Christ made for His chosen ones. – C. H. Spurgeon
“In everything give thanks; for this is the will of
God in Christ Jesus for you.” – I Thessalonians 5:18
Thanks to God for my Redeemer
Thanks for all Thou dost provide!
Thanks for times now but a memory,
Thanks for Jesus by my side!
Thanks for pleasant, balmy springtime,
Thanks for dark and stormy fall!
Thanks for tears by now forgotten,
Thanks for peace within my soul!
Thanks for prayers that Thou hast answered,
Thanks for what Thou dost deny!
Thanks for storms that I have weathered,
Thanks for all Thou dost supply!
Thanks for pain, and thanks for pleasure,
Thanks for comfort in despair!
Thanks for grace that none can measure,
Thanks for love beyond compare!
Thanks for roses by the wayside!
Thanks for thorns their stems contain!
Thanks for home and thanks for fireside,
Thanks for hope, that sweet refrain!
Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow,
Thanks for heav’nly peace with Thee!
Thanks for hope in the tomorrow
Thanks through all eternity!
- August L. Storm (1891)
