LORD’s Day #17 (2022)

Therefore David blessed the LORD in the presence of all the assembly. And David said: “Blessed are you, O LORD, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever. Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.

1 Chronicles 29:10-13 ESV

On the seventeenth LORD’s Day of this year, we were visited by Ptr. Steve Hofmaier, and shared with us messages concerning the church and the greatness of the saving work of Christ. Next week, LORD be willing, we will be able to transfer to our new worship place. Praise God for the endurance that He has granted His church. Truly, He is good and all that He does is good for His servants.

SOME Excerpts and Lessons from TODAY’s MEssages

1. The Call to Submit and Obedience
2. The Purity of the Church
3. The Peace of the Church
4. The Rebuke and the Hope for Restoration 
5. As A Warning and to note replicate the sin
6. To prevent God's Judgment to the Church

We should declare Christ’s work and His work alone. Our proclamation of salvation should be Christ-centered and should not be about ourselves. Believers will be glad and joyous in Christ. It’s not enough that we are saved but we should be ministers of His work.

Ptr. Steve Hofmaier
Abide in Christ and Don’t Sin
Text: 1 John 3:6 
Message: Believers who abide in Christ do not live a sinful life
(1) Abiding in Christ ensures sanctification. 
(2) Habitual Sinning invalidates one’s profession. 

We sin because we do not abide in Christ. The root of all falling into sin is not savoring, finding pleasure, and finding one’s home in Christ. 

When we abide in the written Word, the Bible, we will abide in the living Word, Jesus Christ.

“86 years have I have served him, and he has done me no wrong. How can I blaspheme my King and my Savior?”

~ Polycarp’s Martyrdom (ca. 69-ca. 155)

“Don’t sing too much of your love for God. But sing more of His love and what He has done for you.”

~ Paul Washer

Without Christ, you have every reason to be distressed, depressed, and terrified.

Blessed Lord’s Day!
