What is Your Greatest Need?

“What do we really need, what is our greatest need? Our greatest need is life. Most people today are but existing; they have no life. When their pleasures are shut off, when because of war the cinemas and theatres and public houses and dance halls have to be closed they have nothing. They have not got life; they are but existing, and dependent upon things outside themselves; they need life. But where can life be found? It is Christ again who has said, ‘I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly’ (John 10:10). Life means spiritual life; life means a relationship to God and an enjoyment of His fellowship; and Christ our Lord has it in all its fulness. He says, ‘He that cometh unto me shall never hunger, and he that believeth on me shall never thirst’ (John 6:35). ‘The water that I shall give you’, He says to the woman of Samaria, ‘shall be in you a well of water springing up into everlasting life’. Though the world may take everything from you, though you may be naked and bereft of all things, this life from Christ will still go on springing up eternally within you.”

David Martyn Lloyd-Jones, The Unsearchable Riches of Christ: An Exposition of Ephesians 3 (Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1972), 62.

This Sunday at Mountain View — April 19, 2015

Wow, the weather is fantastic! Nothing feels better than heading out to church in warm Spring weather. Our Worship starts at 11, our Bible school at 10.

We are excited to have Dan lead the worship music this Sunday, along with members of the youth. We have a good group of talented kids who play or sing almost weekly.

If you come at 10 AM, adults are watching the video series, “From Dust to Glory” by R. C. Sproul. This series is an overview of the entire Bible.

There is also a Bible class for younger children, and one for Jr/Sr high.

Scriptures for this Sunday:

Psalm 4

Acts 3:12-19

1 John 3:1-7

Luke 24:36b-48

Sermon text: Ephesians 3:8-13

Jerry M. will bring the Communion Meditation.

See you tomorrow!

This Sunday at Mountain View, April 12th, 2015

It looks like we came out of the cold and into the storms! We think the weather might be good this Sunday, but if you need a ride anyway, call 905-575-1544. Don’t hang up if the phone delays, that’s just the switching to our call-forwarding. You most likely will actually speak to a human! In any event, contact us, leave a message on the phone, or here, or at info@mountainviewchristian.com

We worship together in all generations, but children will leave during the sermon time. With the many children in our services, we really “make a joyful noise to the Lord!” (yes, that “joyful noise” phrase is actually in the Bible! Look at Psalm 95:1-2)

This Sunday or worship in song will be lead by Daniel J. Josh C. will be bringing the communion meditation, and the sermon text is Ephesians 3:1-13.

Scriptures in worship will be:

Psalm 133

Acts 4:32-35

1 John 1:1-2:2

John 20:19-31

If you are not a Christian, come and see what the resurrected Lord Jesus is all about. Think about this:

2 Corinthians 5:21 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

We sinned, but Jesus receives the punishment. We do not receive the justice of God; Christ does, for us. But we must respond to Christ’s call. Come and learn how.
