NOW I BELONG TO JESUS
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
· A sincere “THANK YOU” to all who were able to contribute to yesterday’s Workday. The fellowship was good as was your labor of love, much was accomplished. Once again, THANK YOU!
· Immediately following our Morning Worship, we will come to the Lord’s Table.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost” (Titus 3:5).
“There are only two kinds of people in the world--the righteous and the wicked. Interestingly, the righteous believe themselves to be wicked. That is why they need the Gospel. The wicked believe themselves to be righteous. That is why they do not need the Gospel.”
Pastor Todd Nibert
Philippians 3:20 For our conversation (citizenship) is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
I love the present tense assertion here that we believers are already, right now, no longer truly citizens of this world, but of Heaven itself, and from here we look for Him. Being here, but being citizens there, we look for Him to come and get us from where we don't belong (John 15:19), from this place where we are strangers and pilgrims (Hebrews 11:13), from this world we are dead to, and it to us (Galatians 6:14), and bring us home, to be in His glorious presence forever. And as the verse says, to be like Him. He will wipe away the last tear from our eyes, that we will ever shed. And we will have a glorious body like Him, that no enemy or disease can ever touch. With Him and like Him. That's Heaven. That's glory. O how we look for Him. Even so come quickly, Lord Jesus.
