Dear friends! We invite you to our worship service.
Revolving in a world that is guided by human ambition, we involuntarily become captives of the idea that everything exists for our sake. But the world was created by God and serves His purposes.
On Sunday, following the pattern of the first Christians, we gather together to worship God, confessing the great depth of our need and devotion to Him. We set aside our day-to-day concerns to focus on Scripture so that in light of what it says we may examine our lives, pray for ourselves and one-another, and share the joy of belonging to God’s family. We strive to be in fellowship with believers and desire that the Day of the Lord would not only initiate but define the rest of the days in the week.
We invite you to come and share in our blessing of the House of the Lord!
Sermon by pastor Vitaliy Pelikhatyy.
30. From there they went out and began to go through Galilee, and He did not want anyone to know about it. 31. For He was teaching His disciples and telling them, "The Son of Man is to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and when He has been killed, He will rise three days later." 32. But they did not understand this statement, and they were afraid to ask Him. 33. They came to Capernaum; and when He was in the house, He began to question them, "What were you discussing on the way?" 34. But they kept silent, for on the way they had discussed with one another which of them was the greatest. 35. Sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them, "If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all." 36. Taking a child, He set him before them, and taking him in His arms, He said to them, 37. "Whoever receives one child like this in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me does not receive Me, but Him who sent Me." 38. John said to Him, "Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in Your name, and we tried to prevent him because he was not following us." 39. But Jesus said, "Do not hinder him, for there is no one who will perform a miracle in My name, and be able soon afterward to speak evil of Me. 40. For he who is not against us is for us. 41. For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because of your name as followers of Christ, truly I say to you, he will not lose his reward. 42. "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea. 43. If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than, having your two hands, to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire, 44. [where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.] 45. If your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame, than, having your two feet, to be cast into hell, 46. [where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.] 47. If your eye causes you to stumble, throw it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than, having two eyes, to be cast into hell, 48. where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched. 49. "For everyone will be salted with fire. 50. Salt is good; but if the salt becomes unsalty, with what will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another." (Mark 9:30-50)
