“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; Whatis man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?”. Psalm 8:3-4

A certain writer ridiculed the idea that the Almighty Ruler, who inhabits the stellar spaces, can have any knowledge of such a cheese-mite as man. He says: “Put yourself in the planetary space, a mere dot, and do you think that the Almighty Maker can have discernment of thee!” But bigness is not greatness! The infant in the cradle is worth more to the parents and the nation than the royal palace in which he was born. The age which discovers the telescope, with the infinite abyss above, discovers also the microscope, with the infinite abyss beneath.

How absolutely different is the outlook of the Psalmist! He stands under the Eastern heavens, blazing at midnight with myriads of resplendent constellations, and cries: “O Jehovah, my Lord, how excellent is Thy Name in all the earth, who has set Thy glory above the heavens! They are Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers; as for moon and stars, Thou hast ordained them. How great Thou art!” Then he turns to think of man, and says: There must be something more in man than a superficial gaze is competent to discover. He must surely possess an unrealized dignity and worth, since the great God, the Maker of these worlds, stoops to call him friend.

But the question arises: How can God find pleasure in visiting, i.e. in having fellowship with a race so full of evil as ours? Granted that He might have fellowship with Moses or Elijah, with Daniel or John, but how can He stoop to have dealings with ordinary people like ourselves? What is Zaccheus, that the Son of Man should visit at his house? is he not a publican? Yes, but of late he had been restoring his ill-gotten gains, and Jesus sees in him the possibility of a son of Abraham! What is Simon Peter, that Christ should visit him? He, but he will one day become the rock-man, the foremost leader of the Church! So does Christ our Lord see what we may become, and He stands at the door of our life, seeking admission. Let us heed His knock and bid Him come in. – F. B. Meyer

Free Presbyterian Youth Camp 2020

The annual FPC Youth Camp is planned for July 18th – 25th in South Gibson, Pennsylvania. The camp is a great opportunity for our youth (ages 13-18) to have fun and fellowship together and most importantly, to be in the Word of God and under the sound preaching daily. Camp registration forms are now available and the deadline to sign up is Sunday, May 24th. Please see Jonathan McAnally for camp forms and any questions you might have.


Iglesia Cristiana El Redentor

(Redeemer Christian Church)

 Mexico City, Mexico

 Rev. Jason Boyle

On January 1st, the Mexico City church celebrated its eighth anniversary. The Boyles are thanking the Lord for signs of growth recently. They have had an increase of attendance at the Wednesday evening prayer meetings. Please continue to pray that the Lord would guide and provide for a new meeting place.

Another matter for prayer is that three churches in the states of San Luis Potosi and Queretaro are interested in the FPC. Jason will be visiting their churches in March. They first visited the Mexico City church in November, when they enjoyed sweet fellowship in the Boyles’ home. The pastors are already studying books and documents on the FPCNA’s beliefs (such as the translated version of Separated Unto the Gospel).

In February Jason will visit for the first time some remote mission churches in the state of Puebla that have also expressed interest in having supervision, teaching, and support. The pastors in this village have less training and are in a humbler setting with greater physical needs. Please pray for the Lord to guide in regard to their future relationship with our denomination.
