A Powerful Savior

Hebrews 1:1-4 (KJV)

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Paul met with the church on Sunday 

And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.  And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together.

Acts 20:7‭-‬8 KJV

The possibility of fainting 

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.  And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.  As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

Galatians 6:7‭-‬10 KJV

The blessing of being able to ponder God

O Lord , how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.  A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

Psalms 92:5‭-‬6 KJV

Travel arrangements in the Lord’s church

And after the uproar was ceased, Paul called unto him the disciples, and embraced them, and departed for to go into Macedonia.  And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them much exhortation, he came into Greece,  And there abode three months. And when the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into Syria, he purposed to return through Macedonia.  And there accompanied him into Asia Sopater of Berea; and of the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus; and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy; and of Asia, Tychicus and Trophimus.  These going before tarried for us at Troas.  And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.

Acts 20:1‭-‬6 KJV

The failure of Eli

3-19-17-ryan-austin-1-samuel-4-10-11

And the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen.  And the ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain.

1 Samuel 4:10‭-‬11 KJV

 

Expressing thankfulness for gladness

3-15-17-ryan-austin-psalm-92-1-4

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord , and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:  To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,  Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.  For thou, Lord , hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

Psalms 92:1‭-‬4 KJV

1 Corinthians 12:18-21 (KJV)

But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.

Because we love God

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.  He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Psalms 91:14‭-‬16 KJV
