Bethany will (Lord willing) have its annual Christmas singing the 2nd Sunday in December (Dec. 11) beginning at 5:30 p.m. and supper to be served after singing which will end about 6:30 p.m. Come join us in singing songs of praise to our glorious Redeemer who is worthy of all our praise. “I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.” (Psalm 89:1). “I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.” (Psalm 104:33). We pray for the manifestation of the Lord’s presence as we lift up our voice in song as we are told to come before His presence with singing. If you cannot sing aloud, you can still sing in your heart as the Lord knows the thoughts and intents of the heart. The Lord also tells us in the New Testament, “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;” (Eph. 5:18-19). Praise the Lord for His wonderful works toward the children of men.
Point To Ponder
All the prisons, jails and detention centers as well as the majority of law enforcement could be eliminated if the masses would just obey the laws of God. But this will not happen because the depravity of man, the carnal mind, is not subject to the law of God and doesn’t want to obey any laws of God or man made laws, whether it be the Ten Commandments or any federal, state or local statute.
