  • Overview
    The Republic of Botswana is a medium-sized country in southern Africa that shares its borders with South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Seventy percent of this landlocked country is covered by the Kalahari Desert, and, partially due to this fact, it is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, with only about two million people living across more than 220,000 square miles of land (approximately nine people per square mile). At the time of its independence from the United Kingdom in 1966, Botswana was one of the poorest countries in Africa with a GDP per capita of $70. Today, Botswana has one of the fastest growing economies in the world and has a GDP per capita of approximately $14,000. Its high level of development and its strong democratic government make Botswana one of the most stable countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.In spite of its positive political and economic condition, Botwana’s spiritual decline is evident in its life-expectancy figures. Sources tell us that from 1995 to 2005, nearly 28 years were lost from the Batswana’s life-expectancy at birth, with this figure increasing in recent years only due to better medical care for AIDS patients. This disease has been propagated by rampant sexual immorality, leading to Botswana’s rank as second in the world in AIDS prevalence. Though the Tswana were the first Bantu people to respond to Gospel efforts through the London Missionary Society, they are characterized today by widespread immorality and drunkenness. Furthermore, the tribal religions of the Batswana people remain strong and are often integrated into a shell of Christian beliefs. Botswana is in great need of solid, Gospel-centered churches characterized by sound biblical teaching and practice.

Preparing for the Lords Day

Our Sermon Text for This Sunday: Galatians 3:19-22

Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary. 20 Now an intermediary implies more than one, but God is one. 21 Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law. 22 But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by
faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

Catechism  Instruction of Gods Word

Baptist Catechism #107 (Compare WSC #96)
• Q. 107. What is the Lord’s Supper?
• A. The Lord’s Supper is a holy ordinance, wherein, by giving and receiving bread and wine, according to Christ’s appointment, His death is showed forth, and the worthy receivers are, not after a corporeal and carnal manner, but by faith, made partakers of His body and blood, with all His benefits, to their spiritual nourishment, and growth in grace.

Memory Verse(s)
• “and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me” (I Corinthians 11:24, ESV).

Scripture
• Study Passage: Mark 14:12-25
• Support Passages: Matthew 26:17-29; Luke 22:7-20; I Corinthians 5:6-8, 10:16, 11:23-26
• Bible Story: Exodus 12:1-14;

Thoughts
• Below is taken from chapter 30 of the The Baptist Confession of Faith 1689 – Notes by Peter Masters.
• “1. The Supper of the Lord Jesus was instituted by Him the same night on which He was betrayed to be observed in His churches until the end of the world for the perpetual remembrance, and showing forth of the sacrifice of Himself in His death.1
It was also instituted by Christ to confirm believers in all the benefits of His death;
​– for their spiritual nourishment and growth in Him;
​– for their further engagement in and commitment to all the duties which they owe to
​Him;
– and to be a bond and pledge of their communion with Him and with their fellow believers.2
1 1 Cor 11.23-26. 2 1 Cor 10.16-21.
• 2. In this ordinance Christ is not offered up to His Father, nor is there any real sacrifice made at all for remission of sin (of the living or the dead). There is only a memorial of that one offering up of Christ by Himself upon the cross once for all, 3 the memorial being accompanied by a spiritual oblation [offering] of all possible praise to God for ­Calvary.4 Therefore, the popish [Roman Catholic] sacrifice of the mass, as they call it, is most abominable [both spiritually and physically loathsome], being injurious to Christ’s own sacrifice, which is the only propitiation [appeasement; atonement] for all the sins of the elect.
3 Heb 9.25-28. 4 1 Cor 11.24; Matt 26.26-27.
• 3. The Lord Jesus has, in this ordinance, appointed His ministers to pray and bless the elements of bread and wine (so setting them apart from a common to a holy use) and to take and break the bread, then to take the cup, and to give both to the communicants, also communicating themselves5 [at the same time].
5 1 Cor 11.23-26, etc.
• 4. The denial of the cup to the people, the practices of worshipping the elements, lifting them up or carrying them about for adoration, or reserving them for any pretended religious use, are all contrary to the nature [and meaning] of this ordinance, and to the institution of Christ.6
6 Matt 26.26-28; 15.9; Exod 20.4-5.
• 5. The outward elements in this ordinance which are correctly set apart and used as Christ ordained, so closely portray Him as crucified, that they are sometimes truly (but figuratively) referred to in terms of the things they represent, such as the body and blood of Christ.7 However [while such terms may rightly be used of the elements] in substance and nature they still remain truly and only bread and wine as they were before.8
7 1 Cor 11.27. 8 1 Cor 11.26-28.
• 6. The doctrine commonly called transubstantiation, which maintains that a change occurs in the substance of the bread and wine into the substance of Christ’s body and blood, when consecrated by a priest or by any other way, is repugnant not only to Scripture9 but even to common sense and reason. It overthrows the nature of the ordinance, and both has been and is the cause of a host of superstitions and of gross idolatries10 [repulsively glaring worship of an image of Deity, which is prohibited and condemned by the Lord.]
9 Acts 3.21; Luke 24.6 & 39. 10 1 Cor 11.24-25.”
