Sundays 9:00 am Channel 5 CWKYT
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 OF THE DAY
O Lord, our languid souls inspire
For here, we trust, Thou art!
Send down a coal of heavenly fire
To warm each waiting heart.
Dear Shepherd of Thy people, hear
Thy presence now display
As Thou hast given a place for prayer
So give us hearts to pray.
Show us some token of Thy love
Our fainting hope to raise
And pour Thy blessings from above
That we may render praise.
Within these walls let holy peace
And love and concord dwell
Here give the troubled conscience ease
The wounded spirit heal.
The feeling heart, the melting eye
The humbled mind bestow
And shine upon us from on high
To make our graces grow.
(Tune: “According to Thy Gracious Word” p. 192)

“A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.” - Proverbs 18:19
DELIVERED TO THE TORMENTORS
“And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.” – Matthew 18:34-35
If I see how much God has forgiven me, I will forgive my brothers, and will do so from my heart! To be able to forgive is a blessing of grace. If I fail to forgive my brother from my heart, I will be delivered to the tormentors in this life. I will be filled with anger, bitterness, and resentment, and in the life to come, being punished for my sins until the debt is paid, which is never.
LIMITED, YET UNLIMITED
We do believe the atonement of Christ was limited to the elect. Everybody He died for must be saved. That being said, the atonement of Christ is unlimited in its saving power. You cannot be too sinful to be saved. It is unlimited in the glory it gives to God. How it magnifies every attribute of God! We are not ashamed of believing the atonement of Christ was limited to the elect. And we do not hesitate to tell all men that the blood of Christ has power to cleanse anybody, no matter how sinful they are, if they come to Christ by faith.
“And they departed from the presence of the council rejoicing…” Before we read the rest of the verse, think of the many things that people rejoice in. We rejoice when we have no trouble. We rejoice when we get a raise. We rejoice when there is no conflict. We rejoice when there is no sickness. We rejoice when everything is going our way. Now, let’s finish the verse… “They departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name.”
“Let your MODERATION be known unto all” (Phil. 4:5). This is the only time the word “moderation” is used in the Bible; and it does not have to do with temperance in food and drink; but it has to do with attitude and conduct. The meaning is “mild and gentle”. Let all people in the church and in the world see and recognize you as a gentle and kind person. Be known, not as harsh and demanding (this seems to be the code of the day), but as “kind and tenderhearted” (Eph. 4:32). – Pastor Henry Mahan
“Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another.” – Romans 12:10
A believer will in truth love all men. There is no room in a regenerate heart for hate, grudges, and bigotry at all; but there is a special love for those who are called Brethren in the Lord Jesus. We are to love one another as members of the Lord’s family giving precedence and honor to one another. In making others happy, we find happiness! In giving, we receive! In promoting the brother’s welfare and honor, we are honored! Someone once said, “A person’s character is not always revealed in what others say about him, but a person’s character is what he says privately about others.”
- Pastor Henry Mahan
I know that there are no errors
In God’s eternal plan
All things work together
For the good of the blessed man!
And I know when my soul goes upward
To meet Christ in eternal rest
I shall say, as I look earthward
What our Lord decreed – is best!
We have no power from God unless we live in the persuasion that we have none of our own. – John Owen
