Closing Comment: “I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd sacrifices His life for the sheep!” John 10:11. “He will carry the lambs in His bosom, holding them close to His heart!” Isaiah 40:11.
Who is He of whom such gracious words are spoken? He is the Good Shepherd. Why does He carry the lambs in His bosom? Because He has a tender heart, and any weakness in His redeemed children at once melts His heart. The sighs, the ignorance, the feebleness of the little ones of His flock draw forth His compassion. He is considerate of the weak of His flock. He purchased them with His blood, they are His property–He must and will care for those who cost Him so dear. He is responsible for each lamb, bound by covenant engagements not to lose one. They are all a part of His glory and reward. “He carries the lambs in His bosom!” Here is boundless affection. Would He put them in His bosom if He did not love them so much? Here is tender nearness. So near are they, that they could not possibly be nearer. Here is hallowed familiarity. There are precious ‘love passages’ between Christ and His weak ones. Here is perfect safety. In His bosom, who can hurt them? None can snatch them away from His omnipotence! They can never perish–ever! Here is perfect rest and sweetest comfort. Surely we are not sufficiently sensible of the infinite tenderness of Jesus! (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.
