SHALL I GIVE MY FIRSTBORN FOR MY TRANSGRESSION, THE FRUIT OF MY BODY FOR THE SIN OF MY SOUL?

Let your laughter be turned to mourning and 12:30 p.m. Children’s Choir your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will 1:30 p.m. Men’s Choir lift you up. --James 4:6-10 (NKJV) QUOTE OF THE WEEK If ... we are to come into this right relationship with Him, the first thing we must learn is that our wills must be broken to His will. To be broken is the beginning of revival. ... The Lord Jesus cannot live in us fully and reveal Himself through us until the proud self within us is broken. This simply means that the hard unyielding self, which justifies itself, wants its own way, stands up for its rights, and seeks its own glory, at last bows its head to God’s will, admits its wrong, gives up its own way to Jesus, surrenders its rights and discards its own glory— that the Lord Jesus might have all and be all ... it is dying to self and self-attitudes. -- Roy Hession in his book “The Calvary Road,” pages 19-20 Today’s Message Responses to Jesus’ Invitation Matthew 11:16-30 ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SUNDAY, August 21, 2011 “Through Prayer Stirring Ourselves Up to Take Hold of the God of Heaven in 2011” (Isaiah 64:7) VBS Follow-up Meeting All Vacation Bible School teachers and other volunteers please plan to attend a Today follow-up administrative meeting scheduled for today immediately following the Worship Service.
