“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,

the evidence of things not seen. 

2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.”   

Hebrews 11:1,2

                      “To God Be The Glory”  

                    To God be the glory--great things He hath done!

                        So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,

                        Who yielded His life an atonement for sin

                        And opened the life-gate that all may go in.

 

                        O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood—

                        To every believer, the promise of God.

                        The vilest offender who truly believes,

                        That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

 

                        Great things He hath taught us; great things He hath done,

                        And great our rejoicing thro’ Jesus, the Son.

                        But purer and higher and greater will be

                        Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.

               

            Chorus: 

               Praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord!   Let the earth hear His voice!

               Praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord!   Let the people rejoice!

               O come to the Father thro’ Jesus, the Son,

               And give Him the glory—great things He hath done!

Responsive Reading for the Month of September:

Catechism – a set form of questions and answers to teach the tenets of the Christian Faith:

Question: What does God require in the first, second and third commandments?

Answer: First, that we know and trust God as the only true and living God. Second, that we avoid all idolatry and do not worship God improperly. Third, that we treat God’s name with fear and reverence, honoring also His Word and works.

 

Question: What does God require in the fourth and fifth commandments?

Answer: Fourth, that on the Sabbath day we spend time in public and private worship of God, rest, serve the Lord and others, and so anticipate the eternal Sabbath. Fifth, that we love and honor our father and our mother, submitting to their godly discipline and direction.

 

Question: What does God require in the sixth, seventh, and eighth commandments?

Answer: Sixth, that we do not hurt, or hate, or be hostile to our neighbor, but be patient and peaceful, pursuing even our enemies with love. Seventh, that we abstain from sexual immorality and live purely and faithfully, whether in marriage or in single life, avoiding all impure actions, looks, words, thoughts, or desires, and whatever might lead to them. Eighth, that we do not take without permission that which belongs to someone else, nor withhold any good from someone we might benefit.
