FOOD FOR THOUGHT COPIED
In the life of faith, we have entered a race. In this race there will be difficult times, perhaps heavy trials; and along the way there will be tempting pastures of pleasures of which appeal to our flesh. We must go on! We may proceed rapidly or slowly; we may even stumble and fall; but, looking to Christ and depending upon the merits of His righteousness, we continue. We have a responsibility to the Gospel and the doctrines of Christ. Neither the frowns, the accusations, nor even the ridicule of men need cause us to surrender in this responsibility. We have a responsibility to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, the light of the Gospel. We must not let the cares of this world cause us to neglect this important responsibility. We have a responsibility to our families, to keep them together, to set a Godly example in worship, integrity, and in faithfulness and giving. We must not lay down this trust nor fail to see it through. Let us all pray that by God's grace He will keep us and keep us diligent in all these important and vital responsibilities.

A FOUNTAIN OPENED
Horatius Bonar
 

"In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness." (Zechariah 13:1) 

It is the conscious absence of all good things that leads us to this fountain of all goodness. It is as unclean and unrighteous that we come to God, not with goodness in our hands as a recommendation, but with the utter want of goodness. Nor do we come with promises of amendment and future goodness and service; but we come to the fountain as unrighteous, unclean, and unable to remove that unrighteousness or offer anything in exchange. The fountain is open to all who thus come. It is closed against all who come on any other footing. He who comes to the fountain as partly righteous is sent away empty. He who comes as a guilty sinner to a righteous, yet merciful God, finds not only ready access to the fountain of life, but plenteous grace! The righteous God receives unrighteous men if the sinner presents himself in his own true character as a sinner and does not mock God by pretending to be something LESS or BETTER than this.

SOME THOUGHTS ON SPREADING THE Gospel 

"Sinners must hear the Gospel of God's grace in Christ Jesus, not sugary morsels of worldly wisdom, not sappy stories that tug at the emotions."

"The Gospel is not to be preserved like the Crown Jewels, locked in our ecclesiastical strong room. It is to be spread locally, and to the ends of the earth."
Herbert M. Carson

CALL TO WORSHIP
Samuel Medley - 1738

The Saviour lives no more to die!
He lives, the Lord enthroned on high!
He lives triumphant o'er the grave!
He lives eternally to save!

He lives to calm His people's fears!
He lives to wipe away their tears!
He lives to soothe their troubled heart!
He lives, all blessings to impart!

He lives, all glory to His name!
He lives eternally the same!
He lives, their mansions to prepare!
He lives to bring them safely there!

I would forever speak His name;
I would forever praise the Lamb;
I would to all His grace make known,
And worship at His Holy Throne!

(Tune: Doxology)
