Jesus, price-less treasure!
Source of purest pleasure
Truest Friend to me.
Long my heart had panted,
'Til it well nigh fainted,
Thirsting after Thee!
Thine I am most spotless Lamb,
I would suffer naught to hide Thee,
Ask for none beside Thee!

Lord's Day December 12th at 9:54 pm Arnprior.


In Genesis the word was made by God's creative hand;
In Exodus the Hebrews marched to greet the Promised Land;
Leviticus contains the Law, holy, just and good;
Numbers records the tribes enrolled-all sons of Abraham's blood;
Moses, in Deuteronomy, records God's mighty deeds;
Brave Joshua into Canaan's Land the host of Israel leads;
In Judges their rebellion oft provokes the Lord to smite;
But Ruth recalls the Faith of one well pleasing in His sight;
In 1st and 2nd Samuel of Jesse's son we read;
Ten Tribes in 1st and 2nd Kings revolted from his seed;
The 1st and 2nd Chronicles see Judah captive made;
But Ezra leads a remnant back by princely Cyrus' aid.
The city walls of Zion Nehemiah builds again;
While Esther saves her people from plots of wicked men;
In Job we read how faith will live beneath afflictions rod;
And in Psalms are precious songs for every child of God;
The Proverbs like a goodly string of choicest Pearls appear;
Ecclesiastes teaches man how vain are all things here;
The mystic Song of Solomon exalts sweet Sharon's Rose;
While Christ the King and Saviour the rapt Isaiah shows.
The warning of Jeremiah apostate Israel scorns,
His plaintive Lamentations their awful downfall mourns;
Ezekiel tells wondrous words of dazzling mysteries;
While Kings and Empires yet to come, Daniel in vision sees.
Of judgement and of mercy Hosea loves to tell;
Joel describes the blessed days when God with man shall dwell;
Among Tekoa's herdsman Amos received his call;
While Obadiah prophesies of Edom's final fall;
Jonah enshires a wondrous type of Christ our risen Lord;
Micah pronounces Judah lost - lost, but again restored;
Nahum declares on Nineveh just judgement shall be poured;
A view of Chaldeans coming down, Habakkuk's vision gives;
Next Zephaniah warns the Jews to turn, repent and live,
Haggai wrote of those who saw the temple built again
And Zechariah prophesied of Christ's triumphant reign;
Malachi was last who touched the prophetic chord;
Its final note sublimely show the Coming of the Lord.

Was born tonight
The Author of both life and light.
The angels so did sound it.
And like the ravished shepherd said,
Who saw the light, and were afraid,
Yet searched, and true they found it.

The Son of God 'th Eternal King
That did us all salvation bring,
And freed our soul from danger;
He whom the whole world could not take,
The Word, which heaven and eath did make,
Was now laid in a manger.

The Father's wisdom willed it so,
The Son's obedience knew no No,
Both wills were one in stature.
And as that wisdom had decreed,
The Word was now made flesh indeed,
And took on HIm our nature,

What comfort by Him do we win,
Who made Himself the price of sin,
To make us heirs of glory!
To see this Babe all innocence,
A martyr born in our defence,
Can man forget this story?

Ben Johnson

Thou Life of my life Blessed Jesus
Thou Death of the death that was mine
For me was Thy cross and Thine anguish
Thy love and Thy sorrow divine
Thou suffered the cross and the torment
That I might forever go free
A thousand, a thousand thanksgivings
I bring Blessed Savior to Thee!

O Lord from my heart I do thank Thee
For all Thou has borne in my room
Thine agony dying unsolaced
Alone in the darkness of gloom
That I in the glory of Heaven
Forever  and ever might me
A thousand a thousand thankgivings
I bring Blessed Savior to Thee!

Jesus, What a Beautiful Name
Words and Music by Tanya Riches
Performed by: Darlene Zschech

Jesus, what a beautiful name
Son of God, Son of Man
Lamb that was slain
Joy and peace, strength and hope
Grace that blows all fear away
Jesus, what a beautiful name

Jesus, what a beautiful name
Truth revealed, my future sealed
Healed my pain
Love and freedom, life and warmth
Grace that blows all fear away
Jesus, what a beautiful name

Jesus, what a beautiful name
Rescued my soul, my stronghold
Lifts me from shame
Forgiveness, security, power and love
Grace that blows all fear away
Jesus, what a beautiful name

Great song, Marcia - that one heated up the cassette player in my car for a long time.

Check out Margaret Becker's new disc, "Faithfully Yours - Psalms." Ten Psalms of praise, seeking forgiveness, and rejoicing in the Lord. I am enjoying how they bring Psalms 40, 50, 51, and - my favorite, 86 - to life.

"Call on me in the day of trouble and I will rescue you." (Psalm 50:15)

 :DJanuary 7th

Hello everyone , how are you been, did you have a good refreshing New Years.

I am trying my hand at poetry.
I am going to share my attempt with you, remember it is abit rough and my english grammar may off.  I am creating a Winter Contest for the Sunday School time at my church.  This is part of idea I am working on. Before I present the ideas I am trying with the example:

What do you think?



There was a man name Saul
Who journey to be called Paul

A journey who took him wide and near
For a God he did fear

A Gospel message he did take
With  Christian letters he did  make

For unto the people of the Gentiles
Where sinners ground was very fertile

Travelling many miles he did go
When God call , he didn't say no

Fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers
Many in churches gathered together

Learn , grow and encourage
Gain in strength and courage

Paul went from place to place
Difficult times he did face

Continue to even unto prison
Obeying as opportunity arisen

Keeping God's people walking on track
By teaching them Biblical facts

To God, Paul gave all he got
With all his life , with all that he fought

Paul received the rewards he did send
Eternal home way in heaven

Father-like, He tends and spares us
Well our feeble frame He knows
In in arms He gently bears us
Rescues us from all our foes
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Widely as His mercy flows!

As I awoke to the beginning of a brand new day
It seemed like a waves of trials kept coming my way,
Problem after problem was all I could see,
I cried out, "Lord, what is it you want from me?"

The answer that came from the One Most High,
Was nothing but a very simple reply,
It was one unexpected, but yet rang so true,
It's something He desires from me and from you.


I want you to know ME as your SAVIOUR and GUIDE,
The One who will always be right there at your side,
I want you to serve ME through the good times and bad,
To sing praises to MY NAME whether you're happy or sad.

I want your faith to grow stronger as each day goes by,
To TRUST ME when there's no answers to your questions of "WHY?"
To learn of MY LOVE and to feel MY EMBRACE,
When you're called to endure the hardships you face.

I want no one or nothing to take MY PLACE in your heart,
In whatever you should do, I want to take part,
Stand on MY PROMISES, let nothing cause you doubt,
In the end you will see that all things will work out.

So you see, MY DEAR CHILD, I want to be YOUR ALL IN ALL,
To DEPEND ON MY PRESENCE when you stand or when you fall,
When you question just what is it that I want from thee?

February 23

Authors: Wendell P. Loveless
Keep praising, keep praising, When the days are dark and drear:
Keep praising, keep praising, God will guide you, never fear;
Keep praising, keep praising, Thankful hearts to Him be raising;
Has the Lord not said,
There is glory on ahead -
So keep praising him

Verse 1:
Something's gonna happen like the word has never known,
When the people of the Lord get down to pray;
A door's gonna swing open,
and  the walls come atumbling down,
When the people of the Lord
Get down to pray

Verse 2:
He's gonna take over,
He's gonna take control,
WHen the people of the Lord get down to pray;
He's gonna move the mountain
He's gonna make the waters roll
WHen the people of the Lord get down to pray.

Verse 3:
You're gonna know it
when the Lord stretches out His hand
When the people of the Lord get down to pray
There's gonna be a brand new song of victory in this land
When the people of the Lord get down to pray
Mark Kisla

Like a foolish dreamer trying to build a highway to the sky,
All my hopes would come tumbling down, and I never new just why,
Until today, when you pulled away the clouds that hung like curtains on my eyes,
Well I've been blind all these wasted years and I thought I was so wise,
But then you took me by surprise.

Like waking up from the longest dream, how real it seemed,
until your love broke through,
I've been lost in a fantasy, that blinded me,
Until your love broke through.

All my life I've been seaching for that crazy missing part,
And with one touch, you rolled away the stone that held my heart,
And now I see that the answer was as easy, as just asking you in,
And I am so sure I could never doubt your gentle touch again,
It's like the power of the wind.

Like waking up from the longest dream, how real it seamed,
until your love broke through,
I've been lost in a fantasy, that blinded me,
Until your love broke through.'

Keith Green and friends

Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

The words are filled with profound and sarcastic contempt.
They are directed at the Lord of Glory.
How strange, that in these words there is tacit acknowledgement that He did indeed save others, but for those mocking and deriding Him, that proves insufficient basis for their believing in Him.
For that, they require that He save Himself...!
It is certainly revealing is it not?
It is amazing to consider that these events, taking place on the fourteenth of Nissan, which was instituted as the first Hebrew calendar month at the Passover in Egypt, are all taking place exactly in accordance with what has been foreordained of the Supreme Ruler of the universe, Almighty God.
On this remarkable day, in accordance with the prophetic Scriptures, God's Paschal lamb was sacrificed in complete fulfillment of the OT type forwshadowed on that distant Egyptian night.
Those sheltering under the shadow of His wings, are covered from the certain wrath to come.
I remember with grateful heart, and love overflowing, that Himself He did not save...!

HI EVERYONE: FOUND THIS BEAUTIFUL POEM ON THE WEB. I was searching for Easter Poem, this is one beautiful one I found.  The author name is on the bottom of it.

                      THE MASTER'S ROSE

The Master had a garden
Filled with flowers everywhere
Each day he'd water, feed and prune
He'd tend each rose with care.

And as he'd walk by each flower,
His face shone with delight,
His eyes would glow his heart would sing;
They were a lovely sight.

But back in one dark corner
A lonely rosebud stood
The water couldn't reach it
It was weak with want of food.

The rays of sunlight never touched its face
Its warmth it cold not feel
And soon the lack took its toll
And the rosebud could not heal.

It slowly began to wither
Its color began to wane
This rosebud would never blossom
Destined to die in lonely pain.

One day the Master was strolling
Through his garden grand and bright,
When he noticed in the corner
A small pathetic sight.

The single, withered rosebud
Its head bowed low in shame
For it had brought no pleasure
And felt it was to blame.

But the master with his loving hands
Began to tend the rose
He watered, fed, and pruned it
And spoke in sweet repose.

He cleared a path for sunshine
So its warmth the rose would feel,
And around the small and weakened stem
Was placed the master's seal.

The rose began to bud again
Its flower rich and lush
And soon the single rosebud
Became a glorious bush

The master made a special place
And put the rosebush there
Its blossoms glistened with beauty
Its fragrance filled the air.

And each day as the master
Would relish in its rebirth
The rosebush bowed in loving gratitude
For the master gave it worth.

O love, that wilt not let me go
I rest my weary sould in Thee
I give the back the life I owe
That in Thy ocean's depths its flow
May richer, fuller be!

Have you ever wondered why the Bible does not say by one woman, sin came upon all men?
After alll Eve was the first one to take the "apple" was she not?

The operation of the will is guided by the affections.
You will choose, based on what you love most.
Sin is entirely a matter of the heart! Smiley

If ye love me, keep my commandments.

I was going to say this at a later time but I need to take some time off so here is an excercise for all in the meantime.
Open your Bibles and starting with Genesis, check how many times the word commandment is coupled with the word love and you will have the answer. Would you post each instance?
God richly bless and keep!
