FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

Pastor drew dietz

My usual practice is to go to the church building on Saturday and set out the bulletins, walk around and look at the empty building, make sure the nursery is clean, pick up any papers left in the assembly area, and so forth. It always gets to me - it’s a little depressing to think about all the years we’ve been meeting yet how so few actually come. It saddens me to think of various people who have come for awhile, then, for one reason or another, quit because the gospel is too narrow or didn’t fit into their ‘systems’.

But then I remember that our Lord had nowhere to lay His head and I recall the fact that tomorrow, by His grace, THIS VERY PLACE will be the site of the preaching and believing of His sovereign mercy. There are some of God’s sheep here and for that reason I would not want to be at any other location!!!

Brother Jack Shanks told me that when he got discouraged about such things, he would look out at the few gathered and ask ‘who hath believed our report?’ and he would see that ‘you’ have believed this report; yes YOU who faithfully come week in and week out, you who support this very work with your offerings of love and generosity! Let us cherish these times for we are truly blessed of our God to meet once more in His suitable, adoring and wonderful name. 

****************************** 

The God a person worships will be reflected in the way they worship and live out their faith. Some worship a God of justice who is stern and demanding and their God is reflected in their worship by sermons full of sharp rebukes and joyless lives of strict bondage.  Some worship a God of tolerance who hardly has any standard other than accepting everyone and being nice.  Their God is reflected in their worship by sermons that are little more than uplifting pep talks and their lives spent in social endeavors – making the world a better place.

But those who worship the God of Scripture worship a God of unyielding justice who has met all the demands of His justice in behalf of His people in the life and death of the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.  Their God is reflected in their worship by a spirit of awe and wonder at His Being and most of all, His grace toward them.  They worship Him freely, not because they feel an obligation to worship Him but because they are compelled to do so by their love for Him.  Their lives are characterized by the grace and mercy that has been shown to them for they forgive, even as God, for Christ’s sake, has forgiven them.  Even though it is not their aim to make the world a better place, their very presence in the world makes it a better place for the grace that is in them expresses itself in faith working by love.

The kind of person you are and the manner of your worship are always a reflection of the God you worship.
Pastor Joe Terrell
 

****************************** 

However great my troubles, they are not so great as my Father’s power. However difficult may be my circumstances, yet all things are working together for my good. Christian, there is no sweeter pillow than providence! And when providence seems adverse, believe it still, and lay it under your head. For depend upon it – there is comfort in its bosom.”
C. H. Spurgeon
 

****************************** 

CALL TO WORSHIP 

Glory be to God the Father;

Glory to th' eternal Son;

Sound aloud the Spirit's praises;

Hail the glorious Three in One.

 

May the grace of Christ our Saviour,

And the Father's boundless love,

With the Holy Spirit's favor

Rest upon us from above.

 

Thus may we abide in union

With each other in the Lord,

And posses in sweet communion

Joys which earth cannot afford.

 

Thanks we give and adoration

For the Gospel's joyful sound;

Let the fruits of Thy salvation

In our hearts and lives abound.

 

(Tune: "Jesus Calls Us")

(1 Kings 8:56-58)  "Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.  The LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us:  That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers."
