FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

Henry Mahan

So long as two men are walking together, you cannot tell which one of them the dog belongs to. But let the two men part company and it then becomes evident; the dog will follow his master! The dog does not hesitate, debate, or remain undecided; he quickly follows the one he loves. 

Where Christ and men separate; where the Word of God and the traditions of men divide; where the ways of God and ways of the flesh part, the servant of Christ does not hesitate, debate, or remain undecided; he follows Christ, whom he loves, regardless of the cost.

The master may go to a simple cottage, a meal of dry bread, and a lonesome existence while his companion enjoys all the luxuries of the world. But the faithful dog cares little for these things so long as he is with his master. 

****************************** 

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

There is a lifetime of preaching in this verse but there are two points of great importance which are sometimes overlooked; the truth of the saying and the worth of it! To discover the truth of the gospel is to find true peace of mind and to discover the worth of the gospel is to find true peace of heart. 

1.  The truth of it. "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son" (1 John 5:11).  I believe the record that God hath given concerning Christ; therefore, I am not troubled and confused by other voices or other claims. Let God be true and every man a liar. The apostle summed it up this way; "To whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life" (John 6:68). My mind is satisfied! 

2.  The worth of it. If I have Christ, I need nothing else, either in this life or in the life to come. I am complete in Him, redeemed in Him, accepted in Him, and already seated with Him in glory. I have ceased from all my labors and efforts to secure divine favor. His redemptive work is not only effectual but is sufficient for the greatest sinner, the poorest sinner, and the weakest sinner. "My grace is sufficient for thee" (2 Cor. 12:9). Does this not leave your heart in a state of rest and peace? If not, then you have not yet discovered the worth of His great atonement.  Pastor Henry Mahan

A General Principle

It is a general principle that a blessing is about to come from God when we are moved to seek Him with all our hearts. Men do not, by nature, long for nor seek God. So if one is aware of his great need and impressed to seek mercy in Christ, he can be sure the blessing is already designed.  Pastor Henry Mahan

CALL TO WORSHIP
Thomas Kelly - 1809
 

The Lord of glory, moved by love,

Descends, in mercy, from above;

And He, before whom angels bow,

Is found a man of grief below.
 

Such love is great, too great for thought,

Its length and breadth in vain are sought;

No tongue can tell its depth and height;

The love of Christ is infinite.
 

But though His love no measure knows,

The Saviour to His people shows

Enough to give them joy, when known,

Enough to make their hearts His own.
 

Constrained by this, they walk with Him,

His love their most delightful theme;

To glorify Him here, their aim,

Their hope, in Heaven to praise His name. 

(Tune: "Doxology")

(1 Timothy 3:16)  "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."
