“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.”

Address God and Praise Him for Who He Is (Matthew 6:11)

  • God’s Love: “When it says, ‘God is Love,’ it means that love is an essential attribute of God’s being. It means that in God is the summation of all love, so that all love comes from God. And it means that God’s love, we might say, conditions all of His other attributes, so that God can do nothing except He does it in love” (A.W. Tozer, Attributes of God).
  • The Names of God: Jehovah-Rohi .
  • Meaning: The Lord is My Shepherd
  • Psalm 23:1-3; Isaiah 53:6; John 10:14-18; Hebrews 13:20; Revelation 7:17

  • In 2012, Paul Washer traveled to Brazil to preach in a series of meeting with FIEL ministries. While there, he saw the great need that exists in this vast country and also met several men who are worthy laborers in the harvest. After several months of prayer and deliberation, HeartCry has decided to partner with the newly established Martin Bucer Seminary to provide sound theology and ministerial training to those who have been called into the gospel ministry.Martin Bucer Seminary. Seminário Martin Bucer (SMB) is located in São José dos Campos in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. It is an extension of the Martin Bucer Seminary in Germany. Its mission is to train pastors and Christian leaders for the evangelical churches in Brazil (independent or denominational). SMB welcomes partnerships with local churches in Brazil, United States, England and Germany as well with evangelical Christian organizations.The faculty of SMB in Brazil is composed of pastors and teachers from Brazil, Germany and USA. They have to be academically qualified (master’s degree in theology), have ministerial experience, and be accessible to the student. All the teachers work as counselors and are available for assistance in the spiritual life, family relationships, and ministerial development of the student.The SMB curriculum is centered on the Bible and its exposition. The goal of the teaching activity is to lead the student into a deeper relationship with Christ and greater conformity to His image. During the three-year program, the student will seek to develop three main areas for the Christian ministry: holiness, doctrinal knowledge, and ministerial practice.*Information taken from

Preparing for the Lord’s Day

Our Sermon Text for This Week Is: Galatians 2

  • “Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me. 2 I went up because of a revelation and set before them (though privately before those who seemed influential) the gospel that I proclaim among the Gentiles, in order to make sure I was not running or had not run in vain. 3 But even Titus, who was with me, was not forced to be circumcised, though he was a Greek. 4 Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in—who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might bring us into slavery— 5 to them we did not yield in submission even for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you. 6 And from those who seemed to be influential (what they were makes no difference to me; God shows no partiality)—those, I say, who seemed influential added nothing to me. 7 On the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel to the circumcised 8 (for he who worked through Peter for his apostolic ministry to the circumcised worked also through me for mine to the Gentiles), 9 and when James and Cephas and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given to me, they gave the right hand of fellowship to Barnabas and me, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 10 Only, they asked us to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do. 11 But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. 12 For before certain men came from James, he was eating with the Gentiles; but when they came he drew back and separated himself, fearing the circumcision party. 13 And the rest of the Jews acted hypocritically along with him, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy. 14 But when I saw that their conduct was not in step with the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas before them all, “If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?” 15 We ourselves are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners; 16 yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified. 17 But if, in our endeavor to be justified in Christ, we too were found to be sinners, is Christ then a servant of sin? Certainly not! 18 For if I rebuild what I tore down, I prove myself to be a transgressor. 19 For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose.

Catechism – Instruction of God’s Word

Doctrinal Standard WSC #89

  • Q. What makes the word effective for salvation?
  • A. The Spirit of God causes the reading and especially the preaching of the word to convince and convert sinners and to build them up in holiness and comfort through faith to salvation.

Memory Verse(s)

  • “from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (II Timothy 3:15, ESV).


  • Study Passage: Romans 10:13-21
  • Support Passages: Nehemiah 8:7-8; Psalm 19:7-10; Acts 20:32, 26:16-18; Romans 15:4; I Corinthians 14:24-25; II Timothy 3:14-17
  • Bible Story: II Chronicles 17


  • “The doctrine of the gospel call is important, because if there were no gospel call we could not be saved. ‘How are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?’(Rom. 10:14).
  • “The gospel call is important also because through it God addresses us in the fullness of our humanity. He does not save us ‘automatically’ without seeking for a response from us as a whole person. Rather, he addresses the gospel call to our intellects, our emotions, and our wills. He speaks to our intellects by explain the facts of salvation in his Word. He speaks to our wills by asking us to hear his invitation and respond willingly in repentance and faith – to decide to turn from our sins and receive Christ as Savior and rest our hearts in him for salvation” (Pg. 695). [1]
  • Romans 10:13–21 (ESV) “For ‘everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ 14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? 15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!’ 16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, ‘Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?’ 17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. 18 But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have, for ‘Their voice has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.’ 19 But I ask, did Israel not understand? First Moses says, ‘I will make you jealous of those who are not a nation; with a foolish nation I will make you angry.’ 20 Then Isaiah is so bold as to say, ‘I have been found by those who did not seek me; I have shown myself to those who did not ask for me.’ 21 But of Israel he says, ‘All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people.’
