More than Conquerors

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”  Romans 8:37

 The believer is to persevere in his Christian course to the end of his life. We have known many who have gone into the field, and liked the work of a soldier for a battle or two, but soon has had enough, and comes running home. There are so many professors and so few Christians indeed; so many that run and so few obtain; many go into the field against Satan, and so few come out conquerors. Few have the courage and resolution to grapple with the difficulties that meet them in the way. Israel came joyfully out of Egypt, but when their bellies were a little pinched with hunger, they were ready to fly from their colours, and make a dishonourable retreat into Egypt. Many who profess the gospel fail to endure when trouble comes, and Alas! Their hearts fail them. O how many depart from Christ at this cross-road! Do not say you have royal blood running in your veins, and you are born of God, except you can prove your pedigree by this heroic spirit; to dare to be holy in spite of men and devils. How uncomely a sight it is to see a bold sinner and a fearful saint; one resolved to be wicked, and a Christian wavering in his holy course; to see hell keep the field while the saints hide their colours for shame. Take heart O ye saints, and be strong; your cause is good. God himself adopts your quarrel. He shall lead you on with courage, and bring you off with honour. He lived and died for you. For mercy and tenderness to his soldiers, there is none like him. Christ poured out his blood as balm to heal our wounds. He never turned his head from danger: no, not even when hell’s malice and heaven’s justice appeared in the field against him! A few days’ conflict will be crowned with heaven’s glory. In a word, Christians, every exploit of faith causes a shout in heaven while you slip out of your enemies’ hands! – William Gurnall Excerpt from -The Christian in Complete Armour

THE MESSIAH - UPDATE

We have been able to purchase a block of seats for “Messiah” on Tuesday, December 19th at Roy Thomson Hall. Tickets are $36.75 and $27.50 for seniors. There are still some seats available. Please see Ruth Slade. Today is the final day to order.

CHRISTMAS OUTREACH

Each Lord’s day in December there will be a Gospel outreach with caroling and tract distribution from 2-5 pm. The Jew family has kindly offered to host lunch each of those days. Please pray and participate in getting the Word of God into the hands of our neighbours.

CHRISTMAS CARD APPEAL

Each year, instead of exchanging Christmas cards among the congregation, we donate those funds to a worthy cause. This year we are supporting the Good News Bible Club. If you would like to help with this special offering, please mark you offering envelope, “GNBC”. Thank you!

CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICES

We are planning a special International Lunch following the morning service on December 24th. Everyone is invited, and families are asked to bring a hot dish and salad or dessert. After lunch, we will have a time of Carol singing and Scripture reading. There will be a sign up sheet so that we can get an idea of how many tables are required. There will be NO evening meeting that day.

BAPTISMAL SERVICE

We are planning to have a baptismal service at the end of January. If you have come to Christ in salvation and desire to be baptized, please speak to Dr. Saunders.

Please Pray for
