Men’s Breakfast

Men, bring your breakfast on Saturday at 8 a.m. and we’ll spend some time in fellowship before turning to J. C. Ryle’s book, “Holiness”.

All Christians are but God’s stewards. Everything we have is on loan from the Lord, entrusted to us for a while to use in serving Him.
John MacArthur

Spurgeon Speaks

“Beloved, I believe that every Christian person should follow Christ in the waters of baptism, and, having done that, should join the Church of Christ, not so much to follow the Church, as to follow Christ. We are not to follow men, even the best of men, any farther than they follow Christ; but we must take care that we do boldly stand up as adherents of his cause, so that, if it be asked, “Who is on the Lord’s side?” we may put in an appearance directly, and avow ourselves as his followers. …  If you would really serve Christ, come right out from the world, and say, “Let others do as they wilt as for me and my house we belong to Christ, and we will never hide our colors. We will bind the scarlet thread in the window, and we will let all who come by this way understand that here live those who have been redeemed with precious blood, and who therefore cannot, dare not, and will not conceal the gracious fact.” “If any man serve me, let him follow me by taking up my cause, and working for it with all his heart.”

Happy Independence Day!

“The general principles on which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity.”
John Adams

The Bethesda Academy

We complete chapter 1 of Revelation this evening (Monday) and begin chapter 2 beginning at 6:30 p.m.  Come out and join us.

For the LORD is our judge; the LORD is our lawgiver; the LORD is our king; he will save us. Isaiah 33:22

Pastor’s Postscripts

A couple of notes concerning our July calendar:

1.  We have a swimming fellowship scheduled for 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 26 at the Diamonds.  You don’t have to swim to enjoy the fellowship.  Mark the date on your calendars.

2.  Our business meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, July 9.

3.  You will notice on the church calendar that Dr. Curtis McClain is preaching on Sunday, July 13.  Debbie and I will be out of town from the 10th through the 15th and Curtis will fill in for me on that date.  We are finally making the Indiana trip we had to cancel back in January.  I appreciate you supporting Dr. McClain’s  labors.

I do hope each of you have some plans for July 4th.  Despite the current “goings-on” in Washington, we live in a great country.  God has blessed us with the freedom to worship Him as citizens of this land, a freedom many around the world have lost.  That’s a good reason to celebrate our nation’s birthday even if you can’t think of any others.

Our family has always enjoyed the day.  We’ll take in the St. Charles parade Friday morning and end the day somewhere watching fireworks.  Romans 13 teaches that it is God who has ordained governments.  Furthermore, it is God who has put you in this country at this time in history.  So celebrate our nation’s birthday.

As you enjoy the 4th, please pray and (1) thank God for giving us our nation and (2) ask God to heal our land.  Government can not fix the problems we are experiencing in America.  We need a sweeping move of God’s Spirit to bring revival!  Changed lives, lives that have been born again, will change the direction we are headed.

May you enjoy the 4th of July with family and friends.  May our Lord turn the United States back to Him.  And may Christ bless you throughout the remainder of the week.

I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday!
