Closing Comment: John Calvin, commenting on 2 Tim. 4:17: “But the Lord assisted me. He adds this, in order to remove the scandal which he saw might arise from that base desertion of his cause. Though the church at Rome had failed to perform its duty, he affirms that the gospel had suffered no loss by it, because, leaning on heavenly power, he was himself fully able to bear the whole burden, and was so far from being discouraged by the influence of that fear which seized on all, that it became only the more evident that the grace of God has no need of receiving aid from any other quarter. He does not boast of his courage, but gives thanks to the Lord; that, when reduced to extremities, he did not give way nor lose heart under so dangerous a temptation. He therefore acknowledges that he was supported by the arm of the Lord, and is satisfied with this, that the inward grace of God served for a shield to defend him against every assault.”

      Thank you for your interest. The morning service starts at 9:30 and ends around 10:45 followed by Sunday School at 11 where we are studying “Pilgrim’s Progress.” Hope to see you!

    Sounds wonderful. I’ve been attending Lakeview in Rockport, Maine, but have moved to Buxton. Pastor Tracy recommended your fellowship.

    Thank you for having morning worship posted. My fiance and I moved to Maine 9 months ago, and we’ve had issues finding a proper church home. I’m grateful to find this available online.
