Quote to Consider:

Herman Hoeksema on Romans 10:9: "This confession [of Jesus as Lord} implies, moreover, that you would never voluntarily appear in any place where it would appear strange and awkward to confess Jesus as your Lord. It is well to remember this. To determine whether or not it is proper to partake of certain kinds of worldly amusements, we often proceed from the viewpoint of the question: what is wrong with it? It is more salutary to remember always your positive calling to confess with your mouth that Jesus, in Whom you believe, and of Whom you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, is Lord! And wherever your very presence would be in conflict with that confession, so that it would appear absurd if you would make it, you have no proper place as a member of the body of Christ. [If you think] of the words of our text in this light, the matter of our salvation does become a rather serious question, does it not? The way becomes narrow, indeed! The gate through which you and I must enter is strait! In our light-hearted, worldly-minded, superficially religious age we have almost forgotten the seriousness of the Christian faith. O, just accept Jesus and you will go to heaven! That is all! That we cannot serve two masters, God and Mammon, we hardly understand any more. They that profess to be Christians amuse themselves with the world, associate themselves with the world, dance and sing with the world. Only, they insist that they do not go to perdition with the world! But why not, pray? We have forgotten, indeed, that the word of the Lord concerning the narrow way and the strait gate is still true ..."


Having received approval of Hudsonville PRC consistory and the PRC Domestic Mission Committee, Cherith Crossett makes public confession of her faith this morning. May she experience the Lord’s richest blessing as she takes up her place as full confessing member in the Fellowship.
