Resolved
“Resolved, to improve every opportunity, when I am in the best and happiest frame of mind, to cast and venture my soul on the Lord Jesus Christ, to trust and confide in him, and consecrate myself wholly to him; that from this I may have assurance of my safety, knowing that I confide in my Redeemer.” (Edwards, 1723) The old hymn says, “Trust in the Lord, for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.” (Trust and Obey, Don Moen) In a world pursuing happiness at every turn, we have a way to enjoy genuine pleasure. It is not by pursuing something less than happiness offers, but by pursuing a source of pleasure that is greater than all other things. When we are assured of our safety, then joy can come unhindered. If you ride a rollercoaster, strapped in tight, you can enjoy the twists, turns and speed.  But if you were to have the same twist and turns during an airplane flight from here to New York, you would experience sheer terror, not joy.

Pastor Mark's Weekly Update September 19, 2019

Bible’s Being Read to Students by Teachers in Public Schools
That is a shocking statement to us, but it is happening in rural schools in Guatemala.  Last year CHBC and our mission team hosted an area-wide teachers conference for the second time in the last 4 years.  70 teachers attended that conference.  One of those teachers became a Christian 2 years ago as a result of our witness.  She began to read the Bible each morning to her students.  When that story traveled home with us this year, a member of the Hispanic ministry gave money to buy a story-book Bible for every teacher that attended the conference.  Today, each of those 70 teachers have a story-book Bible and are following the example of the lady who began to read each morning from God’s Word.  More than 1,000 students hear a Bible story at the start of their school day because of the mission spirit at CHBC.  Thank you, Capitol Hill Baptist, and thank the Lord for abundant grace.

Resolved
“Resolved, never to give over, nor in the least to slacken my fight with my corruptions, however unsuccessful I may be.” (Edwards, 1723) We should fight sin and temptation, even though we fully understand there may be another failure with the same sin again in the future.  The pursuit of holiness requires the help of the Holy Spirit, and it will not end until we stand in heaven.  But it is our resolve to wage war against the flesh that is part of the fruit born out of genuine conversion.
