Shout for joy in the LORD, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright. Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre; make melody to him with the harp of ten strings! Sing to him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts. For the word of the LORD is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD.Psalms 33:1-5 ESV
SOME Excerpts and Lessons from TODAY’s MEssage
SUNDAY SCHOOL: "BASIC DISCIPLINES OF A CHRISTIAN LIFE: WHY ARE WE TO READ SCRIPTURES?" 1a. BECAUSE of the BENEFITS OF READING THE SCRIPTURES 2a. BECAUSE of our DESPERATE NEED FOR SCRIPTURE 3a. BECAUSE of the SUBLIME CONTENT of THE SCRIPTURES "The law doesn't give provision for atonement, forgiveness or cleansing, it just declare us guilty in the sight of God." "The Bible is a single book with a single purpose: the glorification of God in the salvation of man" "The whole. Bible is the Word of God, therefore the whole Bible should be studied. Men become insufferable cranks by confining their Bible study to single books or to a rarrow circle of topics. Settle it in your own mind -that you will study the whole Bible and have a comprehensive grasp' of all that Göd has revealed." - RA Torrey MORNING SERMON: FOCUS: "SPIRITUAL GIFTS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST" Romans 12:6-8 1. THE SOURCE 2. THE FUNCTION "You are detaching yourself from the body of Christ if you are thinking that you have nothing to contribute" "You are connected to Christ- and if you are connected to Christ, How can you say that you are not capable of contributing to the body of Christ?" "Each man was given some gifts, No man has all the gifts - This should regulate our pride"
“The church is not a one-man show. It is a corporate effort. It is also a depiction of the Triune Jehovah working together – The Father planned. The So executed it. The Spirit applied it in the hearts of the believers”
Afternoon Sermon: THE TRUTH AND THE PEOPLE OF GOD Part 3: STANDING FOR THE TRUTH" Text: Isaiah 8:19-22 Message: STANDING FOR THE TRUTH IS A MARK OF THE TRUE PEOPLE OF THE GOD OF TRUTH The People of God stand for the truth... 1. IN SPITE OF THE WORLD'S REJECTION 1a. Lack of trust with the God of truth 1b. Hatred 2. BECAUSE THIS IS THE WORLD'S ONLY HOPE 2a. This is the only hope of the dying 2b. This is the only hope given by God [Alec Motyer, TOTC Isaiah] There is no hope outside of what the Lord has spoken; every utterance, however spirit-authorized, which fails to accord with his word is darkness without light. APPLICATION - 1. STAND FOR THE TRUTH CONSISTENTLY - If you are a Christian, why are you still not standing for the truth? 2. STAND FOR THE TRUTH LOVINGLY - "Though we preach lovingly, we do not preach to beloved by men" 3. STAND FOR THE TRUTH FEARLESSLY - We don't have to be the eloquent preacher, we just have to know the truth of the Gospel. - We beg men but we do not water down the gospel
“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”CH Spurgeon
