Check out the new article by James Standish located in Thoughts.

Through Jesus, God's mercy was manifested to men;
but mercy does not set aside justice. The law
(Ten Commandments) reveals the attributes of God's
character, and not a jot or tittle of it could be changed
to meet man in his fallen condition. God did not change
His law, but He sacrificed Himself, in Christ, for man's
redemption.
"God was in Christ, reconciling the world
unto Himself." 2 Corinthians 5:19.

A HEARTY WELCOME to Ashland's new members -
Tim and Jerri Meadows from Chillicothe, Ohio SDA Church;
Trinidad Hidalgo from Central SDA Church, San Francisco, Calif.;
Dr. Carrie Childers from the New Creation SDA Church, Lincoln, NE 

Please  join us each and every Sabbath (Saturday)
at 9:30 AM for a study of the Bible in what we call
our Sabbath School, an open discussion of our
current lesson, which is followed by our Divine
Worship Service which begins at 11:00 AM and
includes singing, praise and prayer requests, a
children's story, and a good message from the
Word of God.

We hope that you have a blessed Sabbath which was given to all mankind (Genesis 2:2-3), not just to the Jewish Nation, by God in the Garden of Eden. This day is for resting in God's finished work of Creation and Redemption.
Ezekiel 20:12  "Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them."
Mal 3:6  "For I, the LORD, do not change;..."
If God does not change why would he change any of the Ten Commandments or His Sabbath day? Think about that.


Joh 8:31  So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My word, then you are truly
                disciples of Mine;

Joh 8:32  and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."
 
     The truth of God is found in his Word. As long as we heed the instructions of the Word, we shall remain in unity with our fellow laborers and with the purposes of God. When errors come into our ranks in the form of false and fanciful presentations of the meaning of the Word, we can lead the mind away from these deceptions by presenting the truth as it is revealed in the life of Christ. Truth presented in contrast with error will bring understanding to the minds of the people, and conviction to their hearts. The principles of the Word of God rest upon a foundation as lasting as eternity; they can never fail.
     Jesus called his disciples that he might send them forth as his witnesses, to declare to the world what they had seen and heard of him. Our office, as were theirs, is the most important to which human beings has ever been called, and was second only to that of Christ himself. We are to be workers together with God for the saving of the world. As in the Old Testament the twelve patriarchs stand as representatives of Israel, so the twelve apostles were to stand as representatives of the gospel church.
     The Saviour knew the character of the men whom he had chosen; all their weaknesses and errors were open before him; he knew the perils through which they must pass, the responsibility that would rest upon them; and his heart yearned over these chosen ones. Alone upon a mountain near the Sea of Galilee he spent the entire night in prayer for them, while they were sleeping at the foot of the mountain. With the first light of dawn he summoned them to meet him; for he had something of importance to communicate to them.
     God takes men as they are, with the human elements in their character, and trains them for his service, if they will be disciplined and learn of him. They are not chosen because they are perfect, but notwithstanding their imperfections, that through the knowledge and practise of the truth, through the grace of Christ, they may become transformed into his image.

 

Sabbath is also a time for communion and fellowship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who paid for our salvation with His blood on the Cross of Calvary.

The Apostle Paul says in Rom 10:13  "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. "

That whosoever my friend is each and every one of us for "we are all created in the image of God" (Gen1:27). The Apostle Paul says in 2 Cor 6:2 that "now is the day of salvation". Please don't wait wait until it is too late, because no man knoweth the day or hour (Matthew 25:13). Jesus is standing at the "door knocking" (RE3:20), please don't turn down that invitation because you may only get it once. The glorious event of the second coming of the Lord is coming soon...and even is at the door. Join us today as we praise and worship our Lord, Saviour and best Friend Jesus Christ.

God bless and happy Sabbath

 

 

Speak the Truth to My Neighbor


     These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates. Zechariah 8:16 {ML 233.1}  

     To all who are working with Christ I would say, Wherever you can gain access to the people by the fireside, improve your opportunity. Take your Bible, and open before them its great truths. Your success will not depend so much upon your knowledge and accomplishments as upon your ability to find your way to the heart. By being social and coming close to the people, you may turn the current of their thoughts more readily than by the most able discourse.  {ML 233.2}  
     Take along the publications and ask them to read. When they see that you are sincere they will not despise any of your efforts. There is a way to reach the hardest hearts. Approach in the simplicity and sincerity and humility that will help us to reach the souls of them for whom Christ died.  {ML 233.3}  
     Allow no opportunity to pass unimproved. Visit those who live near you, and by sympathy and kindness try to reach their hearts. Visit the sick and suffering and show a kindly interest in them. If possible, do something to make them more comfortable. Through this means you can reach their hearts and speak a word for Christ. Eternity alone will reveal how far reaching such a line of labor can be.  {ML 233.4}  
     Those who do not take up this work, those who act with the indifference that some have manifested, will soon lose their first love and will begin to censure, criticize, and condemn their own brethren.  {ML 233.5}  
     Those who go forth in the spirit of the Master, seeking to reach souls with the truth, will . . . become more and more vitalized as they give themselves to the service of God. It is a joyous work to open the Scriptures to others. {ML 233.6}
