  • Scripture ReferenceJohn 14:1
  • Sermon SummaryThe disciples had been like lambs carried in the warm bosom of a loving Shepherd. They were now about to be left by Him, and would hear the howling of the wolves, and endure the terrors of the snowstorm. They had been like tender plants conserved in a hothouse, a warm and genial atmosphere had always surrounded them; they were now to endure the wintry world with its nipping frosts, and so it was to be proven whether or not they had an inward vitality which could exist when outward protections were withdrawn.

Welcome Home!

Liberty is the heirloom of all the sons and daughters of Adam. But where do you find liberty unaccompanied by religion? True it is that all men have a right to liberty, but it is equally true that you do not meet it in any country save where you find the Spirit of the Lord. "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." Thank God, this is a free country. This is a land where I can breathe the air and say it is untainted by the groan of a single slave; my lungs receive it, and I know there has never been mingled with its vapours the tear of a single slave woman shed over her child which has been sold from her. This land is the home of liberty.

But why is it so? I take it, it is not so much because of our institutions as because the Spirit of the Lord is here -the spirit of true and hearty religion. There was a time, remember, when England was no more free than any other country, when men could not speak their sentiments freely, when kings were despots, when Parliaments were but a name. Who won our liberties for us? Who have loosed our chains? Under the hand of God, I say, the men of religion-men like the great and glorious Cromwell, who would have liberty of conscience, or die-men who, if they could not reach kings' hearts, because they were unsearchable in cunning, would strike kings low, rather than they would be slaves. We owe our liberty to men of religion, to men of the stern Puritanical school-men who scorned to play the craven and yield their principles at the command of man. And if we ever are to maintain our liberty (as God grant we may) it shall be kept in England by religious liberty-by religion.

This Bible is the Magna Charta of old Britain. its truths, its doctrines have snapped our fetters, and they never can be riveted on again, whilst men, with God's Spirit in their hearts, go forth to speak its truths. In no other land, save where the Bible is unclasped-in no other realm, save where the gospel is preached, can you find liberty.

Our Announcements

Set your Clocks Back Sunday

Remember to set your clocks back this Sunday. We will be having pumpkin pancakes and bacon for breakfast in the main auditorium so you don't want to much to miss this!

Special offering

We're taking up a special offering for William and Mary Bobaggins, when they come to speak on Wednesday. Their mission work in New Zealand has been fruitful, but also a bit grueling at times. Any financial assistance we can provide will help out.

Parking lot will be worked on next week

Please keep in mind that there will be construction occurring in our west side parking lot. The work should be completed by Wednesday, so it will only affect this Sunday's service.

Prayer

Please lift our nation up in prayer. The venom and divisive remarks coming from all sides is bringing out the very worst in people. Pointing to Christ should be our main response.
