Further Study   -

There is no better assurance of salvation to he found anywhere than can he gained from the decree of God. John Calvin

In themselves, believers have no life, or strength, or spiritual power. All that they have of vital religion comes from Christ. They are what they are, and feel what they feel, and do what they do, because they draw out of Jesus a continual supply of grace, help and ability. J. C. Ryle

Leave not off reading the Bible till you find your hearts warmed. Let it not only inform you but inflame you. 

Thomas Watson

The Bible is not primarily about man at all. Its subject is God& Its main theme is not human salvation, but the work of God vindicating his purposes and glorifying himself in a sinful and disordered cosmos. J. I. Packer

Next Lord’s Supper - June 5th

Heidelberg Catechism

Lord’s Day 20

 53. What do you believe concerning the “Holy Spirit”? 

First, that He is co-eternal God with the Father and the Son. Second, that He is also given unto me: by true faith makes me a partaker of Christ and all His benefits, comforts me, and shall abide with me forever.

Apostles Creed

  I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.  And in Jesus Christ, His only-begotten Son, our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From there He will come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy, universal Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Lord’s Prayer

Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

The God of All Grace!

1 Peter 5:6-11

  1. His grace in the midst of suffering

2. His call to glory

3. His refreshment along the way
