Quotes to Consider:

C. F. Keil on I Samuel 10:1: "Anointing with oil was a symbol of endowment with the Spirit of God; as the oil itself, by virtue of the strength which it gives to the vital spirits, was a symbol of the Spirit of God as the principle of divine and spiritual power (see Lev. 8:12). Hitherto there had been no other anointing among the people of God than that of the priests and sanctuary (Ex. 30:23ff.; Lev. 8:10ff.). When Saul, therefore, was consecrated as king by anointing, the monarchy was inaugurated as a divine institution, standing on a par with the priesthood; through which henceforth the Lord would also bestow upon His people the gifts of His Spirit for the building up of His kingdom."

Announcements (subject to God’s will):

The November Covenant Reformed News is on the back table. Many of these CR News have already been posted, but there are two bags (one of 166 and the other of 96) that still need to be done.

Douglas Stewart appeared before the Council this past week. He gave a good confession of his saving faith in Jesus Christ, his knowledge of and agreement with the doctrines taught in this church, and his desire to live a godly life. With joy and gratitude to God, the Council approved his confession and scheduled his public confession for Sunday, Nov. 26, if there are no lawful objections.

Catechism: Monday, 7 PM with the Campbells at the manse. Tuesday, 7 PM at the Murrays. Thursday, 7 PM at the Hamills.
