August 18th: “True Spirituality” 1 Corinthians 3:1-9 [Bulletin]
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. – James 3:14-16
August 11th: “Christian Warfare” Ephesians 6:10-18 [Bulletin]
It is an inexpressible comfort in these days of upheaval and turmoil to know that all events, great and small, are embraced in God’s sovereign providence. Present history is not moving toward chaos. It is moving in the grand drama of God’s plan and purpose to the accomplishment of His holy designs and to the vindication of His glory. – Prof. John Murray, in the midst of WW II
August 4th: “Do This in Remembrance of Me” Luke 22:14-20 [Bulletin]
As we gather to celebrate Holy Communion, we must examine ourselves before we partake of the Body and drink of the Cup. The benefit is great, as we are one with Christ and Christ with us. The danger is also great if we come without confessing our sins. We kindle God’s wrath if we don’t truly repent of our past pride and disobedience. Let us come in Christ’s merits alone!
