Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

Sunday Schools

I realize I did a post late last evening, but I just ran across this quote in a document one of the NCFIC Interns sent me. I just had to post it.

Rev. Thomas Burns (1798), “Sunday schools, then, are reflections on every parish where they are appointed; nay, more, they are reflections upon every parent in that parish.  It is declaring to the world that there is a parish where the parents are either grossly ignorant or shamefully negligent.  Negligent they may be, but ignorant they are not, as I might easily show from several parishes which are under my own observation…” Robert Raikes, The Man and His Work, J. H. Harris, 97
