Quotes to Consider:
Augustine on heavenly citizenship: "The citizen
of the city of God [is] predestined by grace, elected by grace, by
grace a stranger below, and by grace a citizen above" (City of God,
XV. 1, p. 284).
Gerrit Vos: "Now then, when God has sought you
out, and entered your heart by His Word, Spirit and grace, you are
blest. Then the earth and all its treasures cannot charm you any more.
Oh yes, we have our flesh with us, and it lusts after the things of
the earth not only, but also after sin and corruption. But we crucify
our flesh, we hate ourselves for Christ’s sake, and we mortify the
deeds of the body. Then we do not hunger for heaven for heaven’s sake.
Oh no. We long for heaven for God’s sake."
Announcements (subject to God’s will):
Nathan Buchanan was hospitalised this past week
to have a feeding tube inserted. The doctors hope that by feeding him
through the tube at night, he will gain weight. At this point, he is
being fed at the hospital at night but is able to return home during
the day. They hope to start doing the feedings at home this week. Let
us remember the Buchanan family in our prayers.
