Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue, and
if there be any praise,
think on these things.
(Philippians 4:8)

A Vote Is A Decision

On November 3rd, we have the privilege as Americans to make a personal decision regarding who leads our nation.  While you may think that one vote does not make a difference, keep in mind that there is no such thing as a small decision!  Every decision in life is important, even if you do not realize it immediately.  Pray for God’s wisdom in the voting booth on behalf of yourself in addition to other Bible believing Christians in our nation.

Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
Proverbs 14:34)

On the Death of the Rev. Mr. George Whitefield

The ministry of George Whitefield (1714-1770) affected many in England and America.  A young black poet named Phyllis Wheatley was one of those.  She wrote the following poem about Whitefield.

He pray’d that grace in ev’ry heart might dwell,
He long’d to see America excel;
He charg’d its youth that ev’ry grace divine
Should with full lustre in their conduct shine;
That Saviour, which his soul did first receive,
The greatest gift that ev’n a God can give,
He freely offer’d to the num’rous throng,
That on his lips with list’ning pleasure hung.

                  Phyllis Wheatley (1753-1784)

Lord’s Supper

We will be observing the Lord’s Supper after the evening service next Sunday, September 27th.  This is an important time of remembering our Lord Jesus Christ and His atoning work on the cross on our behalf.

And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
Luke 22:19, 20
