LORD’s Day #26 (2022)

To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD of hosts! My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God. Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King and my God.

Psalms 84:1-3 ESV

SOME Excerpts and Lessons from TODAY’s MEssage

SUNDAY SCHOOL: "BASIC DISCIPLINES OF A CHRISTIAN LIFE: HOW TO READ SCRIPTURE"
Practical Tips in Reading the Bible: 
1. Read at the same time and the same place.
2. Use a Reading plan and system. 
3. Find an accountability partner.

"There must be knowledge of God before there can be love to God: there must be a knowledge of divine things, as they are revealed, before there can be an enjoyment of them. We must try to make out, as far as our finite mind can grasp it, what God means by this and what he means by that; otherwise we may kiss the book and have no love to its contents, we may reverence the letter and yet really have no devotion towards the Lord who speaks to us in these words." - Charles Spurgeon

MORNING SERMON: "RENEWING OF THE MIND:  DEALING WITH PRIDE"
Romans 12: 3
1. PAUL's EXHORTATION EXPRESSED NEGATIVELY ..."For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think..."
2. PAUL's EXHORTATION EXPRESSED POSITIVELY "...but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.”

"When we think of ourselves better than others, we forget that the Christian life is not about "us" but about "grace.""
"The cure of pride (overestimation and undermoderation) is not false humility but sober judgment and accurate self-perception."

"We must not say, I am nothing, therefore I will sit still, and do nothing; but, I am nothing in myself, and therefore I will lay out myself to the utmost, in the strength of the grace of Christ." - Matthew Henry

“Without knowledge, the Scripture is a sealed book; every line is too high for us; and if the Word shoots above our head—it can never hit our heart!”

– T. Watson
Afternoon Sermon: The Truth and the People of God Part 2: The People of God are Trusting in the God of Truth

"You cannot live for God, if you do not have a life wrought by God - by His grace - to begin with"

"Faith is made for the dark day." ~ Alec Motyer

"None can comfort a troubled soul but the TRUTH of God."

"Are we really trusting in the Lord that we are waiting upon Him?"

"We are living for the Lord who gave himself for us, so why will we not live our life for Him? Why will we not trust Him?"

“There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: ‘Mine!’ “

– Abraham Kuyper
