Article 20 – The Justice and Mercy of God in Christ

We believe that God, who is perfectly merciful and just, sent His Son to assume that nature in which disobedience had been committed, to make satisfaction in that same nature; and to bear the punishment of sin by His most bitter passion and death. God therefore manifested His justice against His Son when He laid our iniquity on Him, and poured out His goodness and mercy on us, who were guilty and worthy of damnation. Out of a most perfect love He gave His Son to die for us and He raised Him for our justification that through Him we might obtain immortality and life eternal.

Closing Comment: Perhaps no figure of speech represents God in a more gracious light, than when He is spoken of as stooping from His throne and coming down from Heaven to attend to the wants and woes of His redeemed people. How can we but love Him, when we know that He numbers the very hairs of our heads, marks all our paths, and orders all our ways? When a tear is wept by you–do not think that God does not behold it, for “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in Your bottle.  You have recorded each one in Your book.” Psalm 56:8. Your sigh is able to move the heart of Jehovah, your whisper can incline His ear unto you, your prayer can stay His hand, your faith can move His arm! Do not think that God sits on high taking no account of you. For the eyes of the Lord run to and for throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him. (Charles Spurgeon)

    Love to attend…..service seems long…? Starts at 9:30? Dismissal…?

      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.
