Meditation
HE KNOWETH OUR FRAME There is a peculiar adaptability in the character of our Lord Jesus Christ to the weakness and fears of his people. Early was he designated as One who should bear our griefs and carry our sorrows; commissioned to bind up the broken hearted, and to comfort all that mourn. The Man Christ Jesus is touched with feelings of our infirmities Heb. 4 15; He knoweth our frame; He remembers that we are dust Ps. 103: 14. The Shepherd of Israel will gather the lambs in his arms, and carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that are with young Isa. 40: 11. It is He who giveth power to the faint, and to them that have no might, he increaseth strength Isa. 40:29. O believers! That we all might learn to fasten our affections, to rivet our hopes on the cross of Christ! Here is our comfort. We must think much and make much of Christ. In Him all fullness dwells. He is the captain of your salvation. He is the Fountain for your uncleanness, and the Light for your way. It is He that is of God made unto His people wisdom and righteousness and sanctification. 1 Cor. 1: 30. No matter how great your guilt, rest on Him, and He will be increasingly precious; precious in life, precious in death, precious forever. While your life is hid with Christ in God, however languid the throb, it shall never expire. Come then, lift up the hands that hang down, and comfort the feeble knees Heb. 12: 12. The heavens and earth shall sooner crumble into their native nothing, than the feeblest lamb of the Shepherds fold stumble and finally fall. Loose thyself, therefore, from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion ! Isa. 50: 2. If you have seasons of trial, be not alarmed; if you have moments off despondency and weakness be not dismayed. Fear not, thou worm Jacob, for thou shalt thrash the mountains and beat them small, Thy Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel. He will strengthen thee; yea, he will help thee; yea he will uphold thee by the right hand of his righteousness Isaiah 41: 10. Say, is it not enough? Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift 2. Cor. 9:15. G. Spring

Thank you so much for coming to worship God with us today. We hope and pray that you will be blessed among us and that you also will be a blessing to us. If you have any prayer needs or if you'd like to know more about our church, one of our pastors or elders would be very happy to speak with you. ______________________________

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble, Psalm 46: 1 ______________________________
