For the Lord’s Day 2.28.16

Dear Covenant Church Family,

Ephesians 5:14-17  “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”  Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,  making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.  Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Am I awake or asleep/spiritually alive or spiritually dead? (Isaiah 60:1-2)

Am I living in the Light of the gospel of Christ? (2 Cor 4:4)

Am I walking (living) according to wisdom? (Prov 2:6-8)

Am I making the best use of the time God gives me? (1 Cor 10:31)

Am I thinking, living, speaking, foolishly? (Titus 3:3-8)

Do I understand the will of the Lord? (John 17:17; 1 Thess 4:1-8)

For the Lord’s Day 2.21.16

Dear Covenant Church Family,

“Christ is a perfect Savior. Christ has earned and merited salvation for His people. “And I give unto them eternal life” (John 10:28); …One of two things must be true: Either Christ did not merit heaven for His people, or their works do not merit heaven. Christ has merited heaven, however, and thus their works have not.  And in what fashion would their works merit? Completely or partially? If completely, then Christ would be no Savior. If partially, then He would be no complete Savior. Christ is Savior, however, and He is a complete Savior. Thus, our works–neither entirely nor partially–are of no avail as far as meriting salvation is concerned.”
