“His name is Wonderful, his name is Wonderful, his name is Wonderful, Jesus, my Lord; he is the mighty King, Master of everything, his name is Wonderful, Jesus, my Lord. He’s the great Shepherd, the Rock of all ages, Almighty God is he; bow down before him, love and adore him, his name is Wonderful, Jesus my Lord.” ~ by Audrey Mieir (Hymn 102)

This Sunday we welcome Rev. Henk Vigeveno to our pulpit.  Pastor V. served our congregation from 1950-1959 and was last with us for our 150th anniversary celebration.  He will be speaking from Mark 10:17-27.

Shot in the Wallet (Mark 10:17-27)

The devil was on the prowl one day out to get the Christian. When he saw the Christian he shot one of his fiery darts and it struck the Christian in the chest. The Christian had on the breastplate of righteousness so he wasn't harmed. The devil shot at the Christian's head but that was protected by the helmet of salvation. The devil figured everyone has an Achilles' heel, so he shot at the Christian's feet that were shod with the gospel of peace so no harm was done. The Christian smirked and turned around to walk away. The devil fired an arrow into the Christian's wallet and killed him.
