Treasured Beyond Measure

Leadership Notes


Short and sweet…which sounds like the polar opposite of the way anyone would describe me…but that is the nature of this week's communication.


Mr. T, who once famously quipped, "I pity the fool who doesn't read their Bible," said last Thursday:


I Felt there Always was A Calling on My Life, But I guess I just

kinda Resisted It until that Tug Got a Little Stronger and Louder.

Thank you Jesus.


This fall has been wonderful here at Covenant Church. Worship is a blessing, as we are properly focused on praising God and loving each other. Church life doesn't seem overbooked or overplanned, which is always a good thing. And the days and nights keep our thoughts on God's grace and mercy as we enjoy the created beauty of the season. God is good all the time!


Finally, Derek Thomas, pastor and writer, as quoted in "Tabletalk Magazine:"


Can a church survive with just that, with just Sunday services, a

midweek meeting for fellowship, and prayer meetings? And yes,

churches for hundreds of years survived all too well and thrived.


I have such warm feelings for the faithful saints here at Covenant Church. You are treasured beyond measure.


And now, your Moment of Spurgeon:


Ah, how the fire of the gospel will test a man's heart. Many a man

thinks he carries something good within him, and he wraps

himself up in the robes of his own righteousness until the gospel

comes, and then he finds that he is naked, and poor, and

miserable.


With Much Love and Affection,


Richard
