Nineteenth Sunday After Pentecost - 10/4/2015
"Jesus: Worthy of More Glory" - Hebrews 3:1-6, 11:23-27
"In the person of Christ do meet together infinite majesty and infinite meekness. These are two qualifications that meet together in no other person but Christ. It is he that is terrible out of his holy place; who is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea: before whom a fire goeth; at whose presence the earth quakes, and the hills melt; whose eyes are as a flame of fire, and of whose dominion there is no end. And yet he was the most marvelous instance of meekness, and humble quietness of spirit that ever was; when he was reviled, he reviled not again; he had a wonderful spirit of forgiveness, was ready to forgive his worst enemies, and prayed from them with fervent effectual prayers. Thus is Christ a lion in majesty, and a lamb in meekness."
— Jonathan Edwards
