Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,
This coming Lord’s Day we look forward to Dr. Matthew Elliott’s second sermon on the life of the Old Testament character named Mephibosheth. I know you were all very encouraged and challenged by his message last week. And we also know that the Lord will bless His people richly once again as we take a second look at God’s magnificent grace at work in the life of this Old Testament man. Please be in fervent prayer for Matthew, and for the preaching of God’s Holy Word.
Thank you for praying for the meeting of the PCA General Assembly this week in Birmingham. We all enjoyed a rich time of fellowship together, and we did indeed sense God’s power and leadership among us. As I have previously indicated, the Session of CPC is planning a report to present to you regarding the decisions that were made by the Assembly, particularly those addressing the matters of controversy among us. We will soon announce a date for a Sunday night gathering for this report and for fellowship afterwards. Please continue to pray diligently for our denomination and for our Presbytery and churches.
Speaking of the Biblical and theological challenges confronting us as a denomination, let me also urge you to continue to study and meditate upon the Epistle of Jude. We will begin our journey through this one-page New Testament letter next Lord’s Day, July 3. There could not be a timelier message for our church that will guide and encourage us as we seek to be faithful to the Gospel, to the Scriptures, and to our Savior.
I love each of you so very much, and rejoice and glory in the Lord constantly because of you!
