THE MUCH MORE

“And Amaziah said to the man of God, But what shall we do for the hundred talents which I have given to the army of Israel? And the man of God answered, The Lord is able to give thee much more than this.” 2 Chronicles 25:9

A very important question this seemed to be to the king of Judah, and possibly it is of even more weight with the tried and tempted O Christian. To lose money is at no times pleasant, and when principle involves it, the flesh is not always ready to make the sacrifice. “Why lose that which may be so usefully employed? May not the truth itself be bought too dear? What shall we do without it? Remember the children, and our small income!” All these things and a thousand more would tempt the Christian to put forth his hand to unrighteous gain, or stay himself from carrying out his conscientious convictions, when they involve serious loss. All men cannot view these matters in the light of faith; and even with the followers of Jesus, the doctrine of “we must live” has quite sufficient weight.

The Lord is able to give thee much more than this is a very satisfactory answer to the anxious question. Our Father holds the purse-strings, and what we lose for his sake he can repay a thousand-fold. It is ours to obey his will, and we may rest assured that he will provide for us. The Lord will be no man’s debtor at the last. Saints know that a grain of heart’s-ease is of more value than a ton of gold. He who wraps a threadbare coat about a good conscience has gained a spiritual wealth far more desirable than any he has lost. God’s smile and a dungeon are enough for a true heart; his frown and a palace would be hell to a gracious spirit. Let the worst come to the worst, let all the talents go, we have not lost our treasure, for that is above, where Christ sitteth at the right hand of God. Meanwhile, even now, the Lord maketh the meek to inherit the earth, and no good thing doth he withhold from them that walk uprightly. – C.H. Spurgeon

DEEPEST SYMPATHY


We would like to express our sincere condolences to Norm and Debbie Lanting on the passing of Norm’s mother last week. We pray that they will know the comfort of the Lord at this sad time.


CHRISTMAS CARD


Each year, instead of exchanging Christmas cards among the congregation, we donate those funds to a worthy cause. This year we are supporting our mission in Little London, Jamaica and the need for a new church bus. If you would like to help with this special offering, please mark your offering envelope, “Little London Bus”. Thank you! 


INTERNATIONAL LUNCH - DECEMBER 23rd


Everyone is invited to a special ‘International Lunch’ following the morning service on December 23rd. Families are asked to bring a hot dish and salad or dessert. There will be a sign-up sheet so that we can get an idea of how many tables are required.


LET THE BIBLE SPEAK RADIO BROADCAST


Rev. Ian Goligher has been broadcasting on the radio, Sunday mornings at 9:30am on Joy Radio 1250AM. Please pray for this outreach opportunity as the Gospel will be spread across the greater Toronto area.
