AT TODAY’S SUNDAY GATHERING, Eric will preach from Matthew 5:21-26: “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell. “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.

“Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.”

READING RECOMMENDATIONS:

–GREG STAWICKI writes: “I just wanted to send along a book that I recently finished. It’s called ‘Stepping Up: A Call to Courageous Manhood,’ by Dennis Rainey (the guy from Family Life Radio). While it’s not a dense book theologically, I found that it was helpful for common-sense advice on my role as a father and husband, especially in how I interact with my son and other men.

“The key word throughout this book is ‘intentional,’ and it’s challenged me to work harder at pursuing meaningful interactions with my family, looking for ways to incorporate the Gospel more into everyday life. Rainey has created an entire curriculum around this book, so there are videos and a blog that tie into it. If someone’s interested in reading the book, I actually found a full PDF on their blog. Not sure if I should recommend using that instead of purchasing the book, but it is on their own website.” http://bit.ly/1DKXJeM

–RHEA sent this to her CG this week: “If you guys haven’t yet chosen [a Bible-reading plan] for this year, here are some compilations of reading plans to choose from (there are set timeframe and also flexible options) … www.ligonier.org/blog/bible-reading-plans … www.thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/justintaylor/2008/12/30/bible-reading-plans … www.hopeingod.org/resources/bible-study-aids.

“Also, I found this short [Desiring God] video helped me to start … http://bit.ly/1yRKHNj … I might go with this one that divides the Bible up into 4 sections. http://bit.ly/1A49ER6 … I’ve used the [Discipleship Journal] reading plan in the past and it’s nice because it has built in ‘catch-up’ days.” http://bit.ly/1ACFEi2

–RHEA ALSO SENDS a link to this colorful Bible Reading Chart. http://bit.ly/1y5i8JC

–AN AMBITIOUS CG will begin reading “The Pilgrim’s Progress” this week, with a goal of finishing Part 1 (Christian’s journey) by April. They group then plans to read Tim Keller’s “Generous Justice.”

–CBR JOURNALS SALE CONTINUES – Chris Hemmelman on The City: “Back by popular demand, 2015 Community Bible Reading Journals will be for sale … The cost is $7.

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: This week’s Servant Shoutout is to Amanda for sharing her beautiful voice with Redeemer on Sunday mornings. Amanda has served on the worship team for several years. While attending Redeemer, Amanda, originally from North Carolina, met and married her husband, TJ. Amanda and TJ serve together by praying before the service and for others during communion. Thank you, Amanda for sharing your voice in prayer and praise!

Redeemer is filled with servants and I am looking forward to 2015 being filled with our appreciation of these servants. I know I can easily list 52 servants, but I want to also allow others to also identify servants in our midst. If you want identify a shoutout to someone you are aware is serving, please let me know at jackie@redeemerarlington.com.

AT TODAY’S SUNDAY GATHERING, Eric will preach from Matthew 5:17-20: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

“Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.”

This Sunday – January 11th, 2015

1 I love you, O Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies.

Psalms 18:1-3

This Sunday we will gather to sing together, study God’s word, and take communion. As we prepare to encounter and respond to God, I want to remind us of our desperate need to find our strength and refuge in the Lord.

Where is your confidence as we enter into the new year? What gives you hope that this year will be a better one than last? Come this Sunday to be reminded that our strength is found in God. He never changes. His every thought towards us is love and good. We will find rest in believing he is in control.

Eric will continue our series on the Sermon on the Mount, and I’ll be leading our times of singing.

Come and be encouraged in your faith. Come expecting that God will speak to you!

I look forward to worshipping with you all.

MEMBER NEWS:

DALE emails, with subject line, “Redeemer’s investment in Guatemala church plant”: “Brothers & Sisters, We had an opportunity [Dec. 30] to visit the little village of Xecotoj (Show-kah-toke) where the Templo church and Redeemer’s House International are partnering to plant a church. Redeemer Church of Arlington contributed toward the purchase of this little sliver of land, up the side of this hill, where the church building will be built.

“The 80+ families in this village lost their homes in Hurricane Stan in 2005. This will be the first church in the village, which has been slowly rebuilt over the last several years. Pastor Pablo of the Templo church is already ministering in Xecotoj a few days each week, all while pastoring his main congregation in Panajachel. Oh, and he supports his family with his fulltime chiropractic practice.”

READING RECOMMENDATIONS:

–Front page of yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, “NEW MISSION: Europe’s Empty Churches Go on Sale,” by Naftali Bendavid in Arnhem, Netherlands: “The closing of Europe’s churches reflects the rapid weakening of the faith in Europe, a phenomenon that is painful to both worshipers and others who see religion as a unifying factor … Trends for other religions in Europe haven’t matched those for Christianity. Orthodox Judaism … has held relatively steady. Islam … has grown …

“The U.S. has avoided a similar wave of church closings … But religious researchers say the declining number of American churchgoers suggests the country could face the same problem in coming years.” With sobering graphics, “No Congregation” and “Empty Pews” http://on.wsj.com/1xFjKN7 (Read free by typing “Europe’s Empty Churches” in Google.)

He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”) Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.”
