First United Reformed Church of Oak Lawn

Preparing for corporate worship September 25, 2022

Greetings, Friends!

In the morning we continue in Mark at 8.11-13. This text includes one of those unmistakable indications of the emotions of our Lord. Why He groans in His soul needs to be well understood by us today. We need to see the nations and our neighbors in the light of His groan and grow accordingly. May He richly bless His church in this truth


Scripture Reading: Mark 8.11-13

 Text: Mark 8.11-13

Message:  “The Closed Door of the Heart”

Prayer of Application
Sunday evening we are at Malachi 1.1-3 and Canons of Dort 1.9-11. Malachi comes chronologically between the dates of the books of Ezra and Nehemiah and reminds God's people that He did not choose them because of anything in them. Election has one cause - the love of God. We will be helped in our evangelism by knowing this truth. Immediately following the evening worship service we can put that growing knowledge to good use in meeting our neighbors at the ice cream social. We do have good news and God will open the hearts of His elect through that good news!
