Memory Verse
Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep (Luke 15:6)

Words Of Wisdom
Jesus told the Pharisees the story of a lost sheep. The sheep was of such value to the shepherd that he left his other sheep behind while he searched for the wandering one. And when he found the one that had strayed, He celebrated! Such is the happiness of God over those who turn back to Him. Jesus said, “Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.” God has sent us a Savior to rescue us and bring us home.

Memory Verse
“…the man of sin … opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thess 2:3-4).

Words Of Wisdom
The “man of sin” is the final human dictator that will rule over humanity the last three-and-a-half years of the tribulation period. In the first three-and-a-half years, he will be a Middle Eastern king who will gain more and more power (see Daniel 11:35 ff.). But at the midpoint of the tribulation, he will be indwelt by a demon and will be given power to make war against believers in Christ (Dan 7:21; Rev 13:5, where continue = make war). But his doom is sure. Jesus will return to earth (Zech 14:3-4) and the man of sin (Rev 19:20, “the Beast”) will be cast alive into the lake of fire. The “triumphing of the wicked is short” (Job 20:5).

Memory Verse
For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts another (Psalm 75:6–7).
 
Words Of Wisdom
In regard to Psalm 75:6-7, theologian Allen Ross wrote: “The people of God can look through history and see how time and time again God has humbled proud individuals or nations, and raised up the meek. But down through history and in the present time God does this only enough to prompt people to submit to him before the final judgment when he will do this universally and finally. [Psalm 75] began with the word that he has set the time for the judgment; so what he does now at appropriate times, he will do for certain at the set time.”

worship with us!

Memory Verse
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).

Words Of Wisdom
In Hebrews 11:1 we have a definition of faith and the value it has. Faith is the “substance” of things hoped for. The word translated substance (hupostasis) is quite flexible in meaning, but in this context it probably stresses the confidence or assurance that one has in something. It is the assurance we have
in what God has promised. In Hebrews 10:38 believers “live by faith” (i.e., with confidence in what God has said, and acting accordingly). The word translated “evidence” (elegchos) would better be understood as “a conviction about” something. Faith is being sure about future hopes (e.g., eternal rewards) and certain about things we cannot presently see (e.g., the eternal kingdom of God).

Memory Verse
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap (Galatians 6:7).

Words Of Wisdom
Sowing and reaping are agricultural terms. When a farmer plants wheat, he reaps wheat. So too when a believer sows what is displeasing to God, he reaps God’s displeasure and the consequences of that displeasure. A believer may sow to his flesh (Gal 6:8; see 5:19–21) or to the Spirit (see 5:22–23). The fleshly sower will of the flesh reap corruption (or, ruin). The future tense [“WILL reap”] could refer to reaping later in this life. However, verse 9 shows that Paul is speaking of the next life. In the context of the epistle of Galatians, sowing to the flesh is living legalistically (on the basis of man-made rules). Sowing to the Spirit is living by faith in Christ (on the basis of God’s Word).
