We invite you to worship with us this Sunday.
"Our Matchless Christ”
To many, Jesus Christ is only a grand subject for a painting, a heroic theme for a pen, a beautiful form for a statue and a thought for a song; but to those who have heard His voice, who have felt His pardon, who have received His benediction, He is music, warmth, light, joy, hope and salvation, a Friend who never forsakes, who lifts us when others try to push us down. We cannot wear Him out; we pile on Him all our griefs and troubles. He is always ready to lift us; He is always ready to help us; He addresses with the same love; He beams upon us with the same smile; He pities us with the same compassion. There is no name like His. It is more inspiring than Caesar’s, more musical than Beethoven’s, more eloquent than Demosthenes,’ more patient than Lincoln’s. The Name of Jesus throbs with all life, weeps with all pathos, groans with all pains, stoops with all love. His breath is laden with perfume. Who like Jesus can pity a homeless orphan? Who like Jesus can welcome a prodigal back home? Who like Jesus can make a drunkard sober? Who like Jesus can illuminate a cemetery plowed with graves?”
