Welcome! We're glad you found our website and encourage you to visit us for worship services and to hear what the Bible has to say to us today. You'll meet friendly people who love the Lord and love others.
Come, thou fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing Thy grace; Streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above. Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it, mount of Thy redeeming love.
What a beautiful, old song sung by some beautiful, young voices. It is a song in which we call out for God to bless us – not just a little bit – but bless us with every blessing He has at His disposal. Sometimes we feel it is inappropriate to ask God to bless us and keep blessing us. Maybe we feel such a great burden of indebtedness to obey His will because of what Jesus did for us on the cross and in His resurrection that we don’t deserve to ask for blessings. That’s a noble goal of a faithful Christian; however, so is asking God to bless us over and over and over again. His holy scriptures teach us in a thousand places that He is a God who loves to bless His people. It’s just the His nature to bless His children.
So how about asking God to bless you with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places today. Don’t just settle for the earthly blessings you can see; look beyond the physical realm and ask God to richly bless you in your salvation relationship in Christ.
Read Paul’s burst of praise in Ephesians 1:3-14. Then listen to a timeless masterpiece of words put to music + a bonus song in the middle.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In loveHe predestined us to adoption as sons and daughters through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,to the praise of the glory of His grace, with which He favored us in the Beloved.In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our wrongdoings, according to the riches of His gracewhich He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insightHe made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He set forth in Him,regarding His plan of the fullness of the times, to bring all things together in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth.In Him we also have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things in accordance with the plan of His will,to the end that we who were the first to hope in the Christ would be to the praise of His glory.In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of the promise,who is a first installment of our inheritance, in regard to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.
