Philemon 1: 4-7
I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers, Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints; That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.

CONDOLENCES TO THE STARK FAMILY
Our dear brother Darryl Starks has gone HOME to be with our Lord this morning. Prayers of comfort and peace.
2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
Finally, brethren, farewell,.... Or "rejoice", with spiritual joy in Christ, their Saviour and Redeemer; in his person, in whom they were accepted; in his righteousness, by which they were justified; in his blood, by which they were washed and cleansed; and in his fulness, from which they were supplied; and particularly, that they had such a faithful monitor, such an hearty well wisher of their souls' welfare, and who was so naturally and affectionately concerned for their good: John Gill
LORD KEEP OUR EYES AND HEARTS ON YOU
There is a song in our hymn book that says, “Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blessed - finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.” Oh, how true that is!
When our hearts are sincerely, fervently looking to Christ, we see a God who TRULY IS GOD. We see a purpose that is ordered and sure. We see a salvation that is forever settled in heaven. And we see an eternal home that is so much better than the pilgrimage we’re passing through now. We see a Husband who loves us and gave Himself for us. We see a Friend that will stick closer to us than a brother. We see a Shepherd who will watch over our every move, keeping His all-seeing eye on everything concerning us. We see safety. We see mercy. We see grace. We see help in our time of need. Every time we look to Christ, we see lasting joy. We see contentment. We see perfect peace and rest.
The great blessing that God’s people have on this earth is the God given ability to look to Christ. That will forever be our blessing. The more we can look to Him, the more joy we will have, the more contentment we will have, the more peace we will have, and the more rest we will have.
Lord, keep our eyes and our hearts on you.
