Oh, The Deep Love of Jesus | Simon Khorolskiy

Violinist: Katie Gayduchik
Composer: Samuel Trevor Francis (1875)

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
vast, unmeasured, boundless, free,
rolling as a mighty ocean
in its fullness over me.
Underneath me, all around me,
is the current of Thy love;
leading onward, leading homeward
to my glorious rest above.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
spread His praise from shore to shore!
How He loveth, ever loveth,
changeth never, nevermore!
How He watcheth o’er His loved ones,
died to call them all His own;
how for them He intercedeth,
watcheth o’er them from the throne.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
love of ev’ry love the best;
’tis an ocean vast of blessing,
’tis a haven sweet of rest.
O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
’tis heav’n of heav’ns to me;
and it lifts me up to glory,
for it lifts me up to Thee.

Глубока любовь Иисуса,
Не постичь и не объять!
Океаном волн могучих
Изливает благодать!
Наполняет, окружает
Той любви поток живой,
В дом небесный направляет
Там, где славный Твой покой!

Глубока любовь Иисуса,
Пусть земля хвалу воздаст!
Ведь Он любит, вечно любит,
Не изменит, не предаст!
Глубока любовь Иисуса,
Словно небеса небес…
Возвышает меня в славу
Там где ждешь Ты, мой Отец!

Right and Left, or Up and Down?

“You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream—the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order—or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, ‘The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.’”

Dr. Jerry Bergman to Speak in Indianapolis

Speaker and author Dr. Jerry Bergman will speak Tuesday, March 9th at 7PM at Zion Unity Baptist Church (3855 E. 10th St., Indianapolis, IN). Dr. Bergman has written books on the fossil record, Hitler’s evolutionary roots, Charles Darwin, and fully functional vestigial organs.

He will discuss the following points:
1. Darwinian evolution/The Big Bang Theory are known lies from the intelligentsia; they are perpetuated for personal interest and monetary gain
2. Charles Darwin’s theory was an intentional effort to debunk Christianity and foment racism and humanism
3. Evidence supporting creation by an all-powerful, omniscient Creator abounds

Bigger Than Any Mountain

“God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.”

The Keaton Family

Bigger than all my problems, bigger than all my fears;
God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.
Bigger than all my questions, bigger than anything;
God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.

Bigger than all the shadows that fall across my path,
God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.
He’s bigger than all the confusion, bigger than anything;
God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.

Bigger than all my problems, bigger than all my fears;
God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.
Bigger than all my questions, bigger than anything;
God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.

Bigger than all the giants of pain and unbelief;
God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.
Bigger than any hangups, bigger than anything;
My God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.

Bigger than all my problems, bigger than all my fears;
God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.
Bigger than all my questions, bigger than anything;
God is bigger than any mountain that I can or cannot see.

March On, My Soul; Be Strong!

“… March on, my soul; be strong!”

Deborah and Barak, Judges 5:21

For twenty years, Canaan had its jackboot on Israel’s throat. When they cried to God for help, He answered and hand-picked Deborah, “a mother in Israel,” to judge His chosen people.

With the help of God and Jael, a woman with MacGyver-like ingenuity, Israel routed Canaan and the land had peace for forty years.

To celebrate, Deborah and Barak sang a victory song. Imagine what it sounded like as they belted it out in the original Hebrew!

Catch the whole story in Judges 4–5.

To Love Is to Be Vulnerable

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”

C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Ministry Does Live Ultrasound during Sermon

The Porch, a ministry in Dallas, did a live ultrasound during a sermon!

“For You created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from You
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
Your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in Your book
before one of them came to be.”

Psalm 139:13-16
