Last Sunday in the morning we had the baptism of Caleb Hartnett. We sang- Christ Alone, Cornerstone; Christ is Made the Sure Foundation; Psalm 23 (Townend); Ps 119:17-24; In Christ Alone. We read from Acts 15:22-41 and Psalm 119:17-24.
The sermon was Romans 9:24-33 – The New People and the Stumbling Stone
“We must give people a chance, give them an opportunity. They are blinded by the devil; we must not be in too much of a hurry to be negative and denunciatory. We should put the positive and make it as attractive as we can. We must do everything we can to win people. And the more certain we are that they are wrong, the more we should go out of our way to try to win them to the truth”. Lloyd Jones
In the evening we began a new series on Jeremiah. We sang – Praise My Soul The King Of Heaven; Jerusalem (City Alight); Ps 139:13-20; Ps 139 (New Scottish). The reading was from Daniel 6.
The sermon was Jeremiah 1 – Jeremiahs Call – A Message for Scotland
“It means nothing less than the building of the kingdom of God among the ruins of a world that has been turned upside down through the energy of the Divine Word” Stewart.
