Today Pastor Wayne shares the story of Jephthah. Revered as a hero of faith in Hebrews 11 Jephthah made a very rash vow to the Lord that cost him a lot. Pastor Sanders shares the cautionary story with the congregation of Chardon Christian Fellowship that mirrors the hope of faith that we all are able to enjoy. God bless you this week!
As David approaches his final years, he reflects upon his life. Overwhelmed by the love and mercy of God, he breaks forth in a Halleluiah Psalm of Praise.

Because our King has rescued us, our response is singing for joy.
Our rescue. (v.1-3)

What was the source of our rescue? Hebrews 10:14
How do people respond to a good King? 1 Kings 1:39-40

Faithfulness Unto All Generations: God looked for a man to stand in the hedge and found none. All he wanted was a common man, not even a mighty man. Today, He looks for a common man with certain traits to stand in the gap and make up the hedge.
Faithful Unto All Generations: The servants of David were embarrassed by the Ammonites. The king sent them to Jericho to heal but left then with the prerequisite to return. They had to get back into their duty for the king. For the believer, he may be embarrassed, but he can find healing with God. But he must also return to the post God has given him to hold.
