It's always amazing to me how the Lord continues to show up and work in us every single Sunday. This week we were blessed to have Travis leading us in worship for the last time till he goes back to Liberty *sniff* and if you don't already have it, here's the link
to pick up his song "God of the Ages" on iTunes.
Mike worked us through 1 John 1:1-4 which deals with the idea that all believers should be absolutely certain of their salvation. We can be completely sure that God has saved us when we grow up into spiritual maturity and see the fruit of God's work in our lives. So do you know Christ as your Saviour? Are you growing and finding your joy in him? Mike shared a quote from Martyn Lloyd-Jones which described the joy true believers experience:
“Joy is something very deep and profound, something that affects the whole and entire personality. In other words, it comes to this; there is only one thing that can give true joy and that is contemplation of the Lord Jesus Christ. He satisfies my mind; he satisfies my emotions; he satisfies my every desire. He and his great salvation include the whole personality and nothing less, and in him I am complete. Joy, in other words, is the response and the reaction of the soul to a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Be sure to pray as our summer day camp is underway with tons of kids from the community attending and many of our youth and adults serving. Pray for salvation and much fruit!
Have a great week,
