Hymn: “God Make My Life a Little Light” by Matilda B. B. Edwards

God make my life a little lightWithin the world to glow;A little flame that burneth bright,Wherever I may go.

The Principles and Practice of Intercessory Prayer

The story is told of a young pastor who, in his first pastorate in Philadelphia, was visited by a group from his congregation. Coming into his home, one of the members told the minister, “You aren’t a strong preacher. In the usual order of things, you will fail here. But a little group of us have decided to meet every Sunday morning to pray for God’s blessing upon you.” In God’s providence, that little Sunday-morning prayer group grew to one thousand people in number. And it was that group and that prayer meeting which underpinned the ministry of J. Wilbur Chapman, one of the great American preachers around the turn of the twentieth century.

“In all life’s ups and downs, remember that you are not bobbing around on the sea of chance, nor are you held in the grip of blind deterministic forces; you are being trained in the school of God’s providence.” —Alistair Begg

Hymn: “There's a Wideness in God's Mercy” by Frederick W. Faber

There’s a wideness in God’s mercy Like the wideness of the sea; There’s a kindness in God’s justice Which is more than liberty. There is plentiful redemption In the blood that has been shed; There is joy for all the members In the sorrows of the Head.

Who Is God? What Is Man?

Unless we first understand God’s identity, we will never make sense of our own. So who is God? Psalm 8 proclaims that He is the Lord, the ruler of all things who created mankind in His image. Our inherent dignity, however, has been tarnished by sin. Contrasting God’s greatness with humanity’s frailty, Alistair Begg demonstrates the immense care for us that God expressed through the death of His Son, Jesus. It is this God alone who reaches out to us, answering the deepest questions of our souls.

Following Jesus Means Trusting the Father’s Provision

Jesus Christ’s teaching about possessions is radical. It confronts both the selfish society in which we live and the sleeping church, which has so often gone with the flow of the world’s anxieties and greed. If the church is to be a shaft of light in the world’s darkness, then those who follow Christ will need to demonstrate a godly outlook toward worldly goods by embracing an absolute trust in the Father’s provision.

‘Corporate Worship’ is a Foundational Read for All Church Members

As a local church member, you’ll want to read Corporate Worship: How the Church Gathers as God’s People. This book explains the foundational framework of a worship service prescribed by Scripture. It unpacks who should gather, what we should do when we gather, and how each of us is to participate individually.

“If you consider yourself of little import, little ability, and little influence, then be encouraged, for God works through insignificant people in insignificant places.” —Alistair Begg

Poem: “Love Constraining to Obedience” by William Cowper

No strength of nature can sufficeTo serve the Lord aright:And what she has she misapplies,For want of clearer light.
