Hymn: “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” by Joseph M. Scriven


What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

What Does the Bible Reveal about the Human Heart?


Our Creator designed every aspect of our being, including all of the emotions, thoughts, and desires whose origins we attribute to the human heart. So what does God have to say about our hearts? And what can we learn from all that the Bible teaches about how the heart directs our actions, attitudes, and motives?

As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

The day is almost here. You’ve been planning and waiting for months. Those colors you chose came together nicely. The catering is finally all set (although maybe it was a bit pricier than you’d hoped). Guests have started sending back RSVPs. This is the day you and your future spouse have been waiting for. It seems there’s always more to do, and yet the details are coming together.

But what about your wedding vows?

Hymn: “The Love of God” by Frederick M. Lehman

The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell,
It goes beyond the highest star
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win:
His erring child He reconciled
And pardoned from his sin.

Alistair Begg on the Importance of Church Attendance


Dear Friend,

I think I caused a little confusion when I mentioned that Truth For Life is going to discontinue the livestream of Parkside’s Sunday morning service. I hasten to add that the livestream will continue to be available on Parkside’s website. Our reason for this change is that Truth For Life is committed to the ministry of the local church, and we regard our role as supplemental to the hard work of the local pastor. I am a pastor, and my concern, along with my colleagues, is for the flock under our care. We want to do nothing that would hinder the work taking place Sunday by Sunday in local congregations.

Hymn: “I Will Sing of My Redeemer” by Philip P. Bliss


I will sing of my Redeemer
And his wondrous love to me;
On the cruel cross he suffered,
From the curse to set me free.
Sing, O sing of my Redeemer!
With his blood he purchased me;
On the cross he sealed my pardon,
Paid the debt, and made me free.

The book of Hebrews encouraged believers in the early church to remain steadfast in their faith by pointing to saints in the Old Testament—men like Noah, Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph, all of whom trusted unwaveringly in God's promises and who were enabled to achieve great things in God's name.
