Be of Good Cheer

Here is the message from January 3, 2021. I must apologize that I did not post this last Sunday. I simply forgot to do what I’m supposed to and have no other excuse. Sorry. ūüė¶ But it is a beautiful message from Pastor Steve about having a cheerful heart, and I pray that it brings you joy. This Sunday’s message will be posted as soon as I get it ready. ūüôā

To listen to the message, simply click play on the audio player below. I’ve also included the Call to Worship and Scripture References for you.

Call to Worship
2 Corinthians 1:3-7
Praise to the God of All Comfort
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who
comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those
in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from
God. 5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of
Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 6 If we
are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are
comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you
patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7 And
our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you
share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.

   The Lord the Shepherd of His People
   A Psalm of David.
23 The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever.

Psalm 62:5-12 (NIV)
5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
    my hope comes from him.
6 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and my honor depend on God;
    he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 Trust in him at all times, you people;
    pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.
9 Surely the lowborn are but a breath,
    the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
    together they are only a breath.
10 Do not trust in extortion
    or put vain hope in stolen goods;
though your riches increase,
    do not set your heart on them.
11 One thing God has spoken,
    two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to you, God,
12¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†and with you, Lord, is unfailing love‚ÄĚ;
and, “You reward everyone
¬†¬†¬†¬†according to what they have done.‚ÄĚ
