From the Pastor

The Bible is full of wisdom and instruction. For example, the Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart: and lean not to thine own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5). “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Proverbs 9:10), and “wisdom is the principle thing” (Proverbs 4:7). Therefore, no person should depend on his own understanding to solve his problems or guide him over the treacherous pathway of life.

Leaning on one’s own ability and understanding will eventually bring defeat and disaster. Wisdom from above is pure, gentle, and easy to be entreated. God promises wisdom to all who ask for it in faith believing.

The Bible also teaches that there is a way that seems right, but it’s end is disaster. When we trust God we are relieved from relying on self. Acknowledging God’s providential care assures us of Divine guidance. Confidence in God and His Word is a prescription for success in the Christian life. Abandon your way! God’s is much better!

Thought for today: The truth and mercy revealed in the Bible can never be known without knowing the author of the Bible.

Sermon: Life’s greatest miracle. Titus 3:3-7.
