The Sermon: Romans 8: 14-17 Those who are led by the Spirit are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship.  And by Him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself testified with our spirit  that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory. THE WONDERFUL SECURITY OF GOD’S FAMILY Listen to the sermon:


The Sermon: Psalm 128 Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in His ways. When you eat the fruit of your labor, you will be blessed and it will be well with you. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house, your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Thus is the man blessed who fears the Lord. May the Lord bless you from Zion all the days of your life;  May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem, and may you live to see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel. Listen to the sermon:
