Norman Reece, one of our elders, will continue his series of messages on prayer in the life of Elijah and its relevance for our prayer lives on Sunday, May 17.
And thus God, though just and holy and righteous, can in Christ Jesus give to us this wonderful blessing, to share His own eternal glory, and to share the eternal glory of the Lord Jesus Christ! . . . If this were entered into, we should sing and rejoice all the day long, under all circumstances, under all trials; but because we enter so little into it, we apprehend so little of it, we pass by so much of what is declared in the Word of God about these things, and are so short of happiness as we are! Now let us ponder more abundantly all these things, that the heart may be brimful of joy. This is so important, because “the joy of the Lord” is the spiritual strength of the believer while we are this side eternity.George Müller, “The God of all grace” sermon, preached at Bethesda Chapel, Bristol, March 28, 1897
