Memory Verse
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not
come into judgment, but has passed from death into life” (John 5:24).
Life Lessons
Since “the Son gives life to whom He will” (John 5:21) and since “all judgment” has been committed to Him (5:22), His divinely powerful word is therefore able to call men into eternal life right here and now with a guarantee that they are free from judgment (5:24). This astounding claim makes of this verse one of the greatest of all recorded statements about eternal salvation. If eternal life could be lost, then a believer would “come into judgment”—an impossibility according to Jesus.

Memory Verse
“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God” (1 John 5:13).
Life Lessons
Every believer knows at the point of saving faith that he has eternal life, because the promises he believes guarantee it (cf. John 11:25–26). But the believer is not immune to doubts after he is saved (cf. John the Baptist; Luke 7:18–19). The antidote to such doubts is always God’s promises. These promises can be referred to repeatedly as a fresh source of assurance. No book of the Bible contains more of these straight-forward guarantees than John’s Gospel itself (John 3:16, 18, 36; 5:24; 6:35–40, 47; etc.). All true assurance of salvation and eternal life must rest on the “testimony of God,” for only that testimony has full reliability.

Memory Verse
2 Peter 1:9—–For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
Life Lessons
The Christian lacking the character qualities in vv. 5-7 is nearsighted. He no longer looks ahead to the Rapture, but to the
present world. He is also blind. He is blind to the spiritual realities of life from God’s viewpoint. He also has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. He has forgotten about how merciful God has been in saving him. Such a person needs to draw near to Christ once again, confess his sin (1 Jn 1:9), and grow in Christ’s grace and knowledge.

Memory Verse
For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:8).

Life Lessons
Do you ever wonder if you are maturing in your walk with the Lord? Peter offers a surefire way to know if your relationship is growing deeper and becoming more fruitful. It is not by the works you do or the sacrifices you make, but by the quality of your character and whether or not you reflect God’s glory in increasing measure.

Memory Verse
By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (2 Peter 1:4).
Life Lessons
Spiritual growth can be a reality for every believer because God already has given us everything required for life and godliness. The spiritual blessings we need are already available to us (see Eph 1:3), but it’s up to us to access them. These comprehensive blessings are appropriated through the knowledge of God—that is, through the specific knowledge of God’s will for and blessings to believers. This knowledge is the difference between merely meeting the President of the United States and having a personal relationship with him.

Memory Verse
“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us” (Matt 1:23).
Life Lessons
Our culture relentlessly promotes the magical fantasy Christmas of our dreams. Industries literally bank on us funding our holiday fantasies. But this year, you may be facing issues that hinder your holiday happiness. Maybe your children are not getting along. Or recent family gatherings have devolved into arguments about culture wars and politics. Maybe one of your children is battling a serious illness or disease or is wandering from the faith. Perhaps this year for the first time you are facing a Christmas alone and you don’t know if you can bear it. As God’s people, we need to remember the truth of Christmas—that God came to dwell with us as our Immanuel. He promises to be with us in every difficulty of life!

Memory Verse
“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled. (Luke 2:38).

Life Lessons
Among the last events before the arrival of God’s Son on planet Earth were two baby announcements. First, an angel told an aged priest and his equally aged wife would have a child who would become the forerunner of Messiah. Then a young virgin was told that she would give birth to that Messiah. The angel Gabriel told her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus”. The God of wonder brought His Son into the world with announcements of the impossible to a couple too old and a girl too young. What amazing declarations! He was sending His Son for all.

Memory Verse
“Then Simeon blessed them, and he said to Mary, the baby’s mother, “This child is destined to cause many in Israel to fall, and many others to rise. He has been sent as a sign from God, but many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your very soul.” (Luke 2:34).

Life Lessons
In Luke’s account of the Christmas story, only one person–the old man Simeon–seems to grasp the mysterious nature of what God has set in motion. “This child is destined to cause many in Israel to fall, and many others t rise. e has been sent as a sign from God, but many will oppose Him,” he told Mary, and then he made the prediction that a sword would pierce her own soul (2:34-35). Simeon knew that though on the surface little had changed–Herod still ruled, Roman troops still occupied Israel– underneath, everything had changed. God’s promised redemption had arrived.

Bulletin Nov 27, 2022

Welcome to Ridge Pointe!
It is our hope today that you will sense our love and devotion for God, our love of great worship music to God, and our love of the timeless and powerful Word of God. Have a blessed day as you worship with us!
Memory Verse
“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us” (Matthew 1:23).
Life Lessons
Jesus’ virgin birth fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecy (Isa 7:14). A “virgin [was to] be with child.” Such a supernatural sign indicated that an unusual child was to be born—unusual because His name reflected His divine nature and presence: “ ‘Immanuel,’ which is translated, ‘God with us.” ’ A virgin birth through the Holy Spirit is a fitting way for God to take on flesh. It provides an explanation for Jesus’ sinless nature (2 Cor 5:21) and qualifies this infinite divine Person to bear an infinite number of sins for all humanity on the cross.
Mens’ Prayer Breakfast
The monthly prayer breakfast will be this Saturday, December 3rd at 9 am. Cost is $5.00 per person, there is a sign-up sheet outside the office.
Ladies Bible Study

Happy Birthday
Lucy Murrey           30th
Ladies’ Brunch
The ladies’ monthly brunch will be on Saturday, December 17th at 10 am. At the home of Kelly Vacendak, address is 4701
Breckinridge Ct. Richardson, TX 75082-3869. Please bring a brunch dish to share and a Christmas ornament in a gift bag to exchange.
 
Annual Christmas Offering
Throughout the month of December, we are asking all of you to give a special offering (above your regular giving) to help
us end the year in good shape financially. This is very important to the continuation of God’s work. And as we give, we will remember the words of Scripture: “God loves a cheerful giver.” When we all take part joyfully, God will use us to share the Word faithfully both here and around the world.
 
Christmas Candlelight Service
December 25th
We will celebrate the day of our Lord’s birth with a special Christmas Candlelight Communion service on December 25th at 11:00 AM. (Please note that there will be no Bible Fellowship that day.) We encourage all of our families to open gifts on Christmas Eve or early on Christmas morning so everyone can be with us for this very special Christmas celebration!
