May 10, Psalms 92, He is my Rock

1It is good to give thanks to the Lord
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning
And Your faithfulness by night,
3With the ten-stringed lute and with the harp,
With resounding music upon the lyre.
4For You, O Lord, have made me glad by what You have done,
I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.
5How great are Your works, O Lord!
Your thoughts are very deep.
6A senseless man has no knowledge,
Nor does a stupid man understand this:
7That when the wicked sprouted up like grass
And all who did iniquity flourished,
It was only that they might be destroyed forevermore.
8But You, O Lord, are on high forever.
9For, behold, Your enemies, O Lord,
For, behold, Your enemies will perish;
All who do iniquity will be scattered.
10But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox;
I have been anointed with fresh oil.
11And my eye has looked exultantly upon my foes,
My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me.
12The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree,
He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13Planted in the house of the Lord,
They will flourish in the courts of our God.
14They will still yield fruit in old age;
They shall be full of sap and very green,
15To declare that the Lord is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
Action: What does it mean, “Your thoughts are deep”?

Charlestown Road church of Christ What are we all about? That’s a great question that deserves to be answered. In many places today, the modern church has become a ministry to serve the whole of man. You may find in some churches educational, recreational as well as spiritual ministries. Having a good time and eating for some is as much "church" as is worshipping. The modern church has come a long way from the way grandma and grandpa worshipped. Progressive, cutting edge, developing are terms used by many today. We, at the Charlestown Road congregation, are going a different direction. Instead of moving ever forward, adapting new ideas and a changing theology, we are interested in going backward to the way God designed the church. We feel it is time for the church to once again be a church. The apostle Paul praised the Thessalonian Christians for "imitating" the Lord, the apostles and the churches of Judea (1 Thessalonians 1:6; 2:14). A person might have an old car. He can fix it up with big wheels, fancy paint and make it very impressive to look at. Or, he can restore it to the way it was originally. Restoration is the spirit of returning things to the way they were originally. This is what we are interested in. We feel God designed things in a certain way on purpose. We want to please God, so we are interested in doing things the way God intended. In Philippians we read, "The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you" (4:9). In our services you will find that we offer the Lord’s Supper each Sunday as the early disciples did (Acts 20:7). Bible preaching is a part of our worship, as it was among the early Christians. We raise money only one way, by the members giving. We are organized according to the Bible fashion with overseers and deacons. We teach baptism for the remission of sins as the early Christians believed. We are not a restaurant, a gym, a nursing home, or a movie theater. We are a church that belongs to Christ, nothing more and nothing else. We want to please the Lord. We are interested in going to Heaven. We hope you are interested in the same things. Come and visit us!
