It is requested that all children under the age of five stay in our nursery

HYMN OF THE DAY
Though troubles assail, and dangers affright
Though friends should all fail, and foes all unite
‘Tis one thing secures us whatever betide
His promise assures us, THE LORD WILL PROVIDE!

The bird without barn or storehouse are fed
From them let us learn to trust for our bread
His saints what is needed shall ne’er be denied
So long as ‘tis written, THE LORD WILL PROVIDE!

His call we obey like Abram of old
We know not the way, but faith makes us bold
For though we are strangers, we have a sure guide
And know in all dangers, THE LORD WILL PROVIDE!

No strength of our own, nor goodness we claim
Our trust is all cast on His precious Name
In this our strong refuge for safety we hide
The Lord is our refuge, THE LORD WILL PROVIDE!

When life is most o’er and death is in view
The Word of His grace will see us safe through
Not fearing nor doubting, with Christ on our side
We hope to die shouting, THE LORD WILL PROVIDE!

(Tune: “O Worship the King” p. 1)

“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.” - Proverbs 24:16

 


ALL I NEED, HAVE, AND WANT
The Lord Jesus Christ is all that I need to make me perfect before God on judgment day. Not only is He all I need. He is all I have! I have nothing to commend me but Him. Not only is He all I need and all I have, He is all I want. I do not want to have anything but Christ only as all I need and all I have. Christ only is all I need, all I have, and all I want! Nothing more, nothing less, and nothing else!



If someone would ask what we preachers of the Gospel would choose for our motto, we would reply, “God only is our salvation.” That is the epitome of our Calvinism, it is the sum and substance of it. I cannot find in Scripture any other doctrine than this, “Salvation is of the Lord.” To tell me anything that departs from this and it will be heresy. What is the heresy of Rome but the addition of something to the perfect merits of Jesus Christ? What is the heresy of Arminianism but the addition of something to the complete work of the Redeemer? Every error and heresy departs from this, “He only is my Rock and my salvation.” - C. H. Spurgeon



If the speaker knows his heart at all, there are two things with which he is eminently and forever satisfied. One is that he is satisfied with his salvation, which he has through faith in Christ. He is satisfied with what Jesus Christ did at Calvary when He put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. He is so satisfied that he would not add so much as the lift of his finger to what Jesus Christ did at Calvary as the ground of his acceptance with God. The second thing with what he is satisfied is the providence of God in his life. The way has not always been plain, nor has it always been pleasant; but we believe that God’s way with us has been profitable to us and to His glory. – C. D. Cole



Now then, there is but one thing with which Almighty God is satisfied – entirely satisfied – and that is THE PERSON AND WORK OF HIS SON! It is with Christ that we must be satisfied, not with ourselves, nor anything about us! When we cease from ALL our labors, and ALL our righteousness, and ENTER INTO HIS REST, pardon and peace will come without delay. - Horatius Bonar

 


SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS
It is not merely that the sinner cannot come to Christ, but he will not come to Christ that he may have life; it is not merely that he cannot see the Truth, but that he loves darkness rather than light, and does not want to see. Sinners are not willing to see. The natural will itself is in bondage. It takes the divine will of God to overcome the wicked will of man by creating life where there was no life. This blindness is more than blindness of the natural eye. It is blindness of heart, blindness of will, blindness of conscience, blindness of understanding, blindness of all things Spiritual. You who are yet blind may raise your objections to my Gospel but you are as unqualified to express an opinion about something you have never seen as a blind man is to argue with you about the color of an object. - Clay Curtis



We dare not hope to be accepted with God because of anything that is in us by nature, or may be infused into us by grace: we are accepted in the Beloved, and apart from Him we look not to be accepted. Even what the Holy Ghost works in us does not furnish us with any merit which we can plead, for it is a gift of grace, and no part of our justifying righteousness. We rest upon Jesus Christ crucified (His righteousness imputed, atoning blood and mediation alone), and not upon our faith, repentance, or prayers. - C. H. Spurgeon



Any sermon that does not have Christ in the beginning, the middle, and the end is a mistake in conception and a crime in execution.
- Scott Richardson



NOTHING
God creates out of nothing. Therefore until a man is nothing, God will make nothing out of him. - Martin Luther
