The gift of salvation through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is entirely from beginning to end the loving sovereign work of our great God. In John 10:22-30 the Lord Jesus Christ defends His deity against the religious leaders who are seeking to undermine His claim to be God.
In defending His deity the Lord Jesus Christ makes one of the great statements in Scripture of the keeping power of God. The Lord who has chosen us in Christ, who has gone to the great lengths to save us from sin through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ will keep us into eternity no matter what we face in this life.
Our salvation is clinched through the sovereign perfect salvation secured for us through the Lord Jesus Christ. The assurance that no one can snatch us out of God the Father's hand, God the Son's hand and from the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit is the greatest motivation to serve Christ in this world.
May the Lord deepen our knowledge of His sovereign love for us and strengthen our dedication to Him.
In Christ's Love,
The Scripture today is John 10:22-30
I. Kept in the sovereign security of God The Father's Hand. verses 27-29
II. Kept in the security of God The Son's loving hand. verses 27-30.
We are now open for a limited in-person worship service each Sunday. The service time has temporarily been changed to 10:00am Sunday morning.
Those attending should arrive by 9:40 if possible to be allow time to be seated in the sanctuary. We continue to request mask use and social distancing, as ordered effective August 1, 2020 by Wisconsin Governor Evers.
We are grateful that we are able to gather together for worship, and hopefully other activities soon. We have resumed celebration of the Lord's Table at the church on the first Sunday of the month. The procedures are modified to keep any possiblity of transmssion of the virus to a minimum.
Whether or not you can meet with us in person, many expenses continue for the church. If you are a member of the local Covenant family, and if you are not already doing so, please give as you are able at this time, based upon your current income level. Even if you cannot attend in person, you can still give by check, including a notation as to whether it is designated for General, Deacons, Building, etc. If you normally give to the Building Fund only when the special offering is taken, please send it in as a separate gift, because we have not been able to take up special offerings since March. Your offerings can be mailed to the church at any time. Thank you! This will be a great help, and we know the Lord will supply in His own way!
