This Week’s Focus Passage: Jeremiah 6:16 ‘But they said, we will not walk therein.’

This Week's Focus Passage: Jeremiah 6:16 'But they said, we will not walk therein.' Jeremiah 6:16 contains one of the most beautiful exhortations in the whole of the Word of God. We read in that lovely and compelling exhortation here given. This has been a blessed direction for many over decades and centuries, and more; it is most certain. "Stand in the ways, and see." ...

This Week's Focus Passage: James 1:18 'Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth.' "Be not deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom can be no variation, neither shadow that is cast by turning. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we sho...

This Week's Focus Passage: Luke 24:27 'He interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.' And beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he interpretedtothem in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

This Week's Focus Passage: Proverbs 21:31 'The horse is prepared against the day of battle; but victory is of Jehovah.' Although the attribution of the saying is questioned by some, it is largely held that it was Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson who coined the phrase, "Do your duty, and leave the consequences to God," or perhaps, more correctly, 'Duty is ours; consequences ar...

This Week's Focus Passage: Luke 22:43, 44 'And there appeared unto him an angel from heaven, strengthening him.' Consider the entire 'pericope' which, we believe, is that which makes up verses 39-46. We set them before our readers for their convenience: And he came out, and went, as his custom was, unto the mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed him. And w...

This Week's Focus Passage: Proverbs 19:5 9 'A false witness shall not be unpunished; and he that uttereth lies shall not escape.' It seems quite strange to find in the Proverbs of Solomon, a particular sentiment stated, not only twice, but stated within a range of five verses. The Proverb cited above from Proverbs 19:5, is virtually duplicated in Proverbs 19:9. The si...

This Week's Focus Passage: Proverbs 16:16 'How much better is it to get wisdom than gold!' If we ascribe, as many do, the writings of mostly all the Proverbs, to the son, and successor, of David, king of Israel, as the very beginning of this grand book of collected writings, informs the reader, clearly, as follows:The Proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel,...

Letter From the Elders: Downstairs Seating Rotation

Dear Congregation. As you are well aware, we have been blessed over the past months with additional families worshiping with us on a regular basis each Lord's Day. For this we are truly thankful to the Lord. And, as a result, we have tasked the diaconate with starting investigation of a new facility - either existing or new built - for our church family. This process has...

This Week's Focus Passage: Luke 18:35ff. And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.' We may read, in Luke 18:35-43, of one of the miracles granted by our Lord Jesus Christ, as He walked upon this earth. In point of fact, He was making His way, with His disciples, on this particular day, to Jerusalem, and to a cross on Golgotha. It is well worth rea...
