 FOOD FOR THOUGHT copied

Any philosophy, religion, doctrine, or idea, though championed by the most brilliant intellects, the most pious religionists, the most respected and popular of men, that tends to lure your mind and heart from Christ, that puts anything in the place of Him, confuses the simplicity that is in Him, or depreciates in any way your estimate of His glorious character and His perfect work on the cross, is false and full of danger for your soul.  Do not be swayed by those who would "beguile you with enticing words" (Col. 2:4), "with enticing words of man's wisdom" (1 Cor. 2:4).  Keep your heart fixed upon Christ, for there is peace, joy, and assurance in Him.

(Isaiah 53:10)  "Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand."

Come To Christ, Not An Altar
Pastor Henry T. Mahan

The "invitation" or "altar call" at the end of a service has become such an accepted tradition in today's religion that those who do not sing an "invitation hymn" and invite people to the front of the church to "get saved" are branded with all sorts of names and charges.

It never seems to trouble religious people that this "altar call" is nowhere to be found in God's Word; that the great majority of those who "come forward" usually "go back" into indifference and worldliness; that coming to Christ is not a  physical move at all but a heart commitment to the Redeemer; that the Scripture presents BAPTISM as our public confession of Christ, not "shaking the preacher's hand;" that the gospel is a COMMAND to repent, believe, and follow the Lord in baptism, not a mere invitation. The King of kings does not invite His subjects to obey and believe Him; He commands them!

I preach to you the Word of the living God! In the preaching of His Word the holiness, justice, and righteousness of God are declared. The truth of our fall, sinfulness, and inability is clearly set forth, as is the grace and mercy of God in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Are you a sinner? Confess that fact before God, not before me! Do you believe the Lord Jesus Christ is the only Redeemer and righteousness and sin-offering for one such as you? Then settle that issue before the throne of grace, not at the front of the church! Has God spoken peace to your heart in Christ? Do you now rest in Him alone as your Lord and Saviour, your High Priest, and Mediator? Is the old man crucified with Christ, buried, and you are risen in Him a new creature? Then ask the pastor to assist you in believer's baptism that you may declare publicly what God has done for you personally!

CALL TO WORSHIP
Samuel Stennett 1787

 

Where two or three, with sweet accord,

Obedient to their sovereign Lord,

Meet to recount His works of grace,

And offer solemn prayer and praise,

 

"There," said the Saviour, "will I be,

Amid this chosen company;

To them unveil my saving grace,

And shed my glory in that place."

 

We meet at Thy command, dear Lord,

Relying on Thy faithful word;

Now send Thy Spirit from above,

And fill our hearts with Thy great love.

 

Here may we prove the pow'r of prayer,

To strengthen faith and sweeten care;

Here to our waiting hearts proclaim

The glory of Thy saving name.

 

(Tune: "Doxology")
