Psalm 3 (CSB)

Psalm 3


A psalm of David when he fled from his son Absalom.

Lord, how my foes increase! 

There are many who attack me.

Many say about me, 

“There is no help for him in God.”


But you, Lord, are a shield around me, 

my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.

I cry aloud to the Lord, 

and he answers me from his holy mountain.


I lie down and sleep; 

I wake again because the Lord sustains me. 

I will not be afraid of thousands of people 

who have taken their stand against me on every side.

Rise up, Lord! 

Save me, my God!

You strike all my enemies on the cheek;

you break the teeth of the wicked.

Salvation belongs to the Lord; 

may your blessing be on your people.


Proverbs 1:11–13 (CSB)

11 If they say—“Come with us! 

Let’s set an ambush and kill someone.

Let’s attack some innocent person just for fun!

12 Let’s swallow them alive, like Sheol, 

whole, like those who go down to the Pit.

13 We’ll find all kinds of valuable property 

and fill our houses with plunder.

Matthew 4:12–5:1 (CSB)


12 When he heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee. 13 He left Nazareth and went to live in Capernaum by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali. 14 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: 

15 Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,

along the road by the sea, beyond the Jordan,

Galilee of the Gentiles.

16 The people who live in darkness

have seen a great light,

and for those living in the land of the shadow of death,

a light has dawned.,,

17 From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, because the kingdom of heaven has come near.” 


18 As he was walking along the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter), and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. 19 “Follow me,” he told them, “and I will make you fish for people.” 20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him. 

21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They were in a boat with Zebedee their father, preparing their nets, and he called them. 22 Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him. 


23 Now Jesus began to go all over Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. 24 Then the news about him spread throughout Syria. So they brought to him all those who were afflicted, those suffering from various diseases and intense pains, the demon-possessed, the epileptics, and the paralytics. And he healed them. 25 Large crowds followed him from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan. 


When he saw the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and after he sat down, his disciples came to him.

December 4, 2020 (Peter was standing at the outer gate.)

The Lord has appointed the blessing— life forevermore. One who walks in wisdom will be safe. Peter was kept in prison, but the church was praying fervently to God for him. Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared, and said, “Quick, get up!” And the chains fell off his wrists. He went to the house of Mary where many had assembled and were praying. He knocked at the door of the outer gate, and a servant came to answer. When they opened the door and saw him, they were amazed.

Pandemic Update: Vaccines, Churches and Dr. Francis Collins

The two discussed the virus and what they believed the church should be concerned about amid the pandemic. Dr. Collins recommended that the church stay very conservative on the restrictions as the virus continues to spread far more rapidly than in past months. They also discussed the timing of a vaccine and reopening. Dr. Collins predicts that our society will begin a move back towards normality as soon as a vaccine is released, which could be in the next few weeks.

December 11, 2020 (Faithful Love)

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His faithful love endures forever. A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but one who consorts with prostitutes destroys his wealth. Since we have heard that some without our authorization went out from us and troubled you with their words and unsettled your hearts, we have unanimously decided to select men and send them to you along with our dearly loved Barnabas and Paul, who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.
