Meditation
CONVICTION FOR SIN It is no certain evidence that a person has been born of God because he has been the subject of deep convictions of sin. Some degree of conviction for sin is absolutely necessary to the existence of religion in the soul. If I were to describe the lowest degree of conviction that is consistent with the possessions of gracious affections, I should be willing to affirm that [no man can be a child of God who has not seen his heart to be so sinful as to need regenerating grace, his sins so great as to deserve everlasting condemnation, and his helplessness so complete as to need a Almighty Savior. And yet many a man has this view of himself who is not a true penitent. It is difficult for persons who hear the Gospel always to remain unaffected and thoughtless, and their solemn impressions often continue for some considerable time. They are frequently made to see their own sinfulness and to feel that they are under the dominion of a carnal mind that is enmity against God. Romans 8:7. The law of God in all the reasonableness of its precepts and equity of its sanctions, in all its extent and spirituality, comes home to their consciences and brings with it the knowledge of sin and the impression of guilt. They see that in them dwelleth no good thing, that it is in vain that they search for the least holiness in anything that they have done, and that all they have ever thought, felt or performed, is in direct opposition to the law of God. Sometimes it is a burden to some particular sin which lies heavy on their consciences, and sometimes it is a life of sin which fills them with distress and trembling. Not infrequently they are often miserable. They feel wretched and forlorn, exiled from the favor of God, bound over to the execution of the final sentence, abandoned to despair, and already to sink into the eternal pit. To aggravate their misery, persons in this state of mind very frequently also have lively impressions of their ill desert. They deeply feel that they deserve to suffer the weight of Gods holy and everlasting indignation. They are stripped of all their excuses, and know that it would be just if the penalty of the law should fall upon them to the uttermost. Now there is not necessarily and religion in all this. A man may be sensible that he is a sinner and a great sinner and never become a penitent. The consciousness of sin is very different is a very different thing from repentance for sin. 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. ______________________________ And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

Congregational Life
Today, Pastor D. Murray will conduct the worship services. The sacrament of the Lords Supper will be celebrated in the congregation this morning. May the Lord bless us as we celebrate together. There will be no Sunday School/catechism classes this morning. The adult Sunday School class will resume January 5, 2014, D.V. Next Sunday, the Sunday School classes (beginners 7th Grade) will meet upstairs for Christmas program practice. The songs for the month are the Christmas program songs. Guatemala Mission Project - We would like to ask your participation in an exciting new project. In the western part of Guatemala in a area known as Quetzaltenango (locally as Xela) we are planning to build a much needed educational facility in the small community of Ostencalco. At this time we host over 300 students daily in a very small rented property with 3 classrooms, a kitchen, and small play area. We already own the land for the new building and are looking for your partnership in the building of this project. It has been very exciting to see the Lord bring people with a burden for this project, and we are praying that in the year of 2014 we can build this tool that the Lord will use to further His kingdom in Guatemala. A team will be going in January to work on this project. The collection today will be to provide materials for this project. Thank you.

There will be a box in the back of church to help out the Young Jae Lee family who just had a baby boy and could use some necessities. Mission Update The translation of scripture into the Achi language will be done in possibly three to five years. This work of translation started back in 1953. Nico has posted several interesting articles about two ladies, Mary Shaw and Helen Neuenswander, who began to translate the New Testament which they finished in the mid 1980s. These ladies were also instrumental in getting the hospital built in Cubulco. To read how God worked through these women go to http://www.frcmissions.org. The Heritage Voices will present a Christmas Concert next Friday, December 13 at 7:30 PM. Refreshments will be served immediately afterward.
