First, we’ve actually received a copy of the recorded or “warranted” deed this afternoon from the purchase on Friday. The significance is in the timing that I sent out before. We weren’t supposed to get the deed until at least Wednesday. Instead we got it today and Lloyd is already working on finalizing the pulling of the permit. We’re already about 3-5 days ahead of schedule. Keep praying and seeking the Lord’s blessing on this endeavor.
Below please see the image that shows the 50 chairs we get to keep placed in the new worship area. The chairs fit incredibly comfortably and there is ample room to add many, many more.
Speaking of chairs… Wednesday night at 909 S. Ridgewood, one thing that I’d love is to get some input on chairs and colors. I’ll have some color/pattern samples there for us to consider. Sunday immediately after worship we’re going o vote on the choice of chairs we want for the new property. There are four sample chairs and each will be available. This is going to be about a $2,500 to 3,000 dollar expense so, we really need to think critically about it.

“There is therefore now no condemnation.”
Come, my soul, think thou of this. Believing in Jesus, thou art actually and effectually cleared from guilt; thou art led out of thy prison. Thou art no more in fetters as a bond-slave; thou art delivered now from the bondage of the law; thou art freed from sin, and canst walk at large as a freeman; thy Saviour’s blood has procured thy full discharge. Thou hast a right now to approach thy Father’s throne. No flames of vengeance are there to scare thee now; no fiery sword; justice cannot smite the innocent. Thy disabilities are taken away: thou wast once unable to see thy Father’s face: thou canst see it now. Thou couldst not speak with him: but now thou hast access with boldness. Once there was a fear of hell upon thee; but thou hast no fear of it now, for how can there be punishment for the guiltless? He who believeth is not condemned, and cannot be punished. And more than all, the privileges thou mightst have enjoyed, if thou hadst never sinned, are thine now that thou art justified. All the blessings which thou wouldst have had if thou hadst kept the law, and more, are thine, because Christ has kept it for thee. All the love and the acceptance which perfect obedience could have obtained of God, belong to thee, because Christ was perfectly obedient on thy behalf, and hath imputed all his merits to thy account, that thou mightst be exceeding rich through him, who for thy sake became exceeding poor. Oh! how great the debt of love and gratitude thou owest to thy Saviour!
“A debtor to mercy alone,
Of covenant mercy I sing;
Nor fear with thy righteousness on,
My person and offerings to bring:
The terrors of law and of God,
With me can have nothing to do;
My Saviour’s obedience and blood
Hide all my transgressions from view.”
