Catechism Corner

3. As Christ would have us to be absolutely convinced that there will be a day of judgment, both to deter all men from sin and to give greater consolation to the godly in their adversity, so will he have that day unknown to men, that they may shake off all carnal security, may always be watchful—because they do not know at what hour the Lord will come—and may always be prepared to say, “Come, Lord Jesus. Come quickly. Amen.”

(WCF, Chapter 33, MEV)

TableTalk Moment

Overcoming The World In Christ:  “When we face tribulations because of our own sin or the hostility of others, we are sustained by knowing that Christ has overcome the fallen world, including our own fallen selves.”  (October 3, page 36).

Short Items

Sunday School: This Sunday at 9:30am in the Camellia Room, we will continue our new study in the Book of Daniel. Our topic for Sunday will be, “The Writing On The Wall,” covering Daniel 5. We will see a comparison between two feasts; Belshazzar’s feast of mockery stands as a warning to today’s fallen world surrounded by an army of the heavenly host. For background reading, look at Daniel 6 as well.
