FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

Pastor Todd Nibert

"Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief" Mark 9:24

I really believe that Christ is all in salvation and yet I constantly look within for evidences of salvation.  I really believe that God is sovereign and yet I worry and complain. I really believe that God is the first cause of all things, yet I can harbor anger and resentment.  I really desire likeness to Christ, yet I still have a desire for sin.  Why these contradictions?  Because I have two natures - the nature of the first birth and the nature of the second birth.  One that always believes; one that never believes.  One that always sins, one that never sins.  These two natures operating in my one consciousness.  Hence my cry, "Lord, I believe, help Thou mine unbelief." 

******************************
Come Hear

Since God is pleased by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe, should we not be continually urging the lost to come hear the gospel? May God be pleased to open doors for us to go to this dying world and compel men and women to come to Christ.
Pastor David Eddmenson 

****************************** 

Luther says, "Once upon a time, the devil said to me, 'Martin Luther, you are a great sinner, and you will be damned! "Stop! Stop!' said I. 'One thing at a time. I am a great sinner, it is true, though you have no right to tell me of it. I confess it. What next?' 'Therefore, you will be damned.' 'That is not good reasoning. It is true I am a great sinner, but it is written, "Jesus Christ came to save sinners." Therefore, I shall be saved! Now, go your way. So I cut the devil off with his own sword, and he went away mourning because he could not cast me down by calling me a sinner."

****************************** 

(1 Timothy 1:15)  "This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief."

There's a nice word in the text: it is the word "acceptation." It's all provided for you. It's very much like a supper. You'll find the table laid, and everything all ready. You're not expected to bring anything at all. I was once invited out to tea by a poor widow, and I took something in my pocket. But I'll never do it again. It was two cakes; and, when I brought them out and laid them on the table, she picked them up and flung hem out into the street and said, "I asked you to tea; I didn't ask you to provide tea for me." And so with Christ: he asks, he provides, and he wants nothing but ourselves; and if we take aught else, he'll reject it. We can only sup with him when we come as we are. Who will accept salvation? Who'll say,

I take the blessing from above,

And wonder at thy boundless love?

John Wold Ackrill, in "The Sword and the Trowel"

(Matthew 1:23)  "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us."

CALL TO WORSHIP
Isaac Watts From Psalm 145
 

Long as I live I'll bless Thy name,

My king, my God of love;

My work and joy shall be the same,

In that bright world above.

In that bright world above.

 

Great is the Lord, His power unknown,

And let His praise be great;

I'll sing the honors of His Son,

His works of grace repeat.

His works of grace repeat.

 

Thy grace shall dwell upon my tongue,

And while my lips rejoice,

The men who hear my joyful song,

Shall join their cheerful voice.

Shall join their cheerful voice.

 

To Christ the Lord let every tongue

Its noblest tribute bring;

When He's the subject of the song,

Who can refuse to sing?

Who can refuse to sing? 

(Tune: "Majestic Sweetness")

(2 Samuel 22:50-51)  "I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name.  He is the tower of salvation for his king: and showeth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore."
