Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Thought of the day—

The most effective and influential Christian in the world is not the one filling their lives with spiritual service. Nor is it the one who knows the most Bible. And it isn’t the one who lives a morally upright life. No, the most effective and influential Christian is the one whose character is consistently being transformed to that of the Lord Jesus in the Fruit of His Spirit – ‘love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control’. And how are these developed? By faithfulness to the means of grace God has given us – prayer, His Word, and fellowship with like-minded brothers and sisters (Galatians 5:22-23).

The Beauty Of Togetherness

My church holds two services on the Lord’s Day. Each Sunday morning, we gather for worship, fellowship, and instruction for about ninety minutes. Some Sundays we may go a little longer but we are generally in a corporate setting from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Then we have an evening service. It normally lasts from 6:00 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. Like the morning service, we may go a little longer. Yet, we aren’t in a hurry. It is standard practice to see many people hanging around after both services to enjoy the togetherness as God’s people. There is something beautiful about the togetherness of God’s people on the Lord’s Day and having two opportunities is a delight and joy. And it is this beauty of our togetherness we want to consider from today’s scripture.

A Satisfying Command

Psalm 27:8 – You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, Lord, do I seek.” THEME OF THE DAY. A SATISFYING COMMAND. Human beings are fully satisfied with only one thing. Yes, we find temporary pleasure in things of the world, even sin, but ultimately everything apart from the One thing will prove to be unfulfilling. That…

Remember His Mercy, Not Your Sin

1 Timothy 1:15-16 – The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal…
