Though the bodies of God's people cannot escape decay and death in this life, they will be raised into glorious eternal life by the resurrected Jesus on the Last Great Day. Know You Shall Stand and See Your Living Redeemer.
What should a Christian say about his life? Romans 8:31–34 looks forward to the midweek sermon. In these four verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that a Christian is someone who should say that everything in time and space is coalescing for his good.

In 1 Thess 1:6, Paul says that, by receiving the Gospel with joy despite much affliction, the saints were not only imitating him but the Lord as well. In 2:13-16, Paul revisits this theme. When God's people holdfast to Scripture as God's Word, it works endurance that they might remain faithful in suffering. Whatever we might suffer for Christ cannot begin to compare with what He endured to bring us salvation.
Greetings and welcome! This is our worship service for October 1, 2023. Today we continue in our study in Philippians chapter 1 with the call for unity and contending for the Gospel. In addition, we also celebrate Communion. Thanks for joining us!
Unmet Expectations are often the cause of relational difficulties. Maybe you're someone who has unrealistic expectations of others. Or maybe you're someone who has unrealistic expectations of yourself. How should we learn to manage our expectations, especially given the fact we live in a fallen world? Kohelet urges us to examine three areas of "life under the sun" to help us manage our expectations and act accordingly.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. We rarely perceive the moving of a clock's hands as the visible reminder that life is slowly--sometimes quickly--passing us by. To focus on time makes one insane; but to ignore it makes one a fool. How are we to understand our role as "free" beings, when we seem to be held captive by the "tyranny of time?" Join us in Ecclesiastes 3 as we catch a glimpse of the Son's rays yet again, this time through His role of guiding human affairs and giving our "time under the sun" true and ultimate purpose.
As David is on the run from his own son, who is seeking to take the throne through a violent coup, he begins to meditate on God and His Word. Though he finds himself in a dry and weary land with no basic provisions, he thirsts instead for the living God. The reason why is simple: to David, the grace of God is truly better than life. In light of this reality, he gives us five principles to learn how to find satisfaction in God as we traverse through the barren wasteland of the wilderness.
The redeemed heart hungers and thirsts for God righteousness. Ultimately, they, and only they, will be satisfied, for the human heart can find real satisfaction in God alone.
"Satisfied" in this verse is a passive which means God is the actor and the blessed one is the receiver. God gives satisfaction in Him.
The context of the gospel
the righteousness of God
hungering and thirsting for righteousness
the satisfaction found only in God's righteousness
