Lord’s Day 35, 2019


I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”

image

The Lord sent fiery serpents among the people and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. So the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, because we have spoken against the Lord and you; intercede with the Lord, that He may remove the serpents from us.” And Moses interceded for the people. Then the Lord said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a standard; and it shall come about, that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, he will live.” And Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived. —Numbers 21:6–9

The Same for Ever

image

The cross stands firm; no blast of time,
No hurricane of earth’s rude clime,
Can shake its heavenly stedfastness,
Or lessen its high power to bless.
I look and live!

The tidings from that tree of love
Are still God’s message from above,
Telling, each hour, of cleansing blood,
And pointing to the upward road.
I hear and live!

Still does the Christ His grace reveal,
His well of living joy unseal;
Still telling of His love and light,
His meekness, majesty, and mig\ht.
I come and live!

Still waves life’s tree its glorious wealth,
Laden with everlasting health;
With fruit and leaf divinely fair,
And immortality still there.
I eat and live!

Still from the rock the waters burst
To quench the weary spirit’s thirst;
Who drinketh once will drink again,
Who drinketh shall not drink in vain.
I drink and live!

—Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope, Third Series (James Nisbet & Co., 1878).

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


Please don’t miss worshiping with your local congregation
if you can possibly help it.
But if you’re in need of a good sermon,
try these.
