From the Pastor’s Heart – 1/29/16

Paul’s council to the Thessalonians in 4:1 is this: “Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.” Paul was trying to tell them do not become lazy, satisfied or comfortable in your walk with God. There must be constant abounding, growing and stretching. Read more

WORSHIP SERVICES CANCELLED TODAY

WEATHER ALERT YT

The decision has been made to cancel our Worship Services today out of abundance of caution, given the road conditions in many places around the Northern New Jersey area. We are encouraging you to go to the Church of the Oranges YouTube Channel to see some of the archived church services at COTO. To get you started, last week’s service has been uploaded for your convenience.

Be safe and stay warm, and we’ll see you next week. Remember that our 40 Days of fasting and prayer continues daily with our prayer line sessions. Visit our dedicated page for details.

STEWARDSHIP – “God’s Reserves of Time and Means”

“In like manner a tithe of our income is “holy unto the Lord.” The New Testament does not re-enact the law of the tithe, as it does not that of the Sabbath; for the validity of both is assumed, and their deep spiritual import is explained….. While we as a people are seeking faithfully to give to God the time which He has reserved as His own, shall we not also render to Him that portion of our means which he claims?”…………Counsels on Stewardship, pp  66.
