- Bible Verses For Sunday
A.M. – Proverbs 31:10-31 – “In Praise of Wisdom”
10A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
P.M. -Galatians 1:1-12 – Belgic Confession Art. 7 – “The Problem in Protestantism”
Paul, an apostle—sent not from men nor by a man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead— 2 and all the brothers and sisters[a] with me,
To the churches in Galatia:
3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,4 who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age,according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
No Other Gospel
6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who calledyou to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!
10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Paul Called by God
11 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. 12 I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.
Welcome to Our New Website!
I would like to welcome you to Preakness Valley URC’s website! We all hope that
you find it informative and useful.
Preakness Valley is a congregation of Bible believing Christians located in northern
New Jersey. We gather for worship each Sunday, out of thanksgiving to God for
delivering us from sin’s punishment, and in obedience to His command. Because we
love each other and the Word of God we also gather together during the week for
various other Bible studies and fellowship.
We believe that the Bible gives answers to our biggest problem: sin. The Bible
teaches that all people are sinners who need to be forgiven of their sins through
faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches that sin is at the root of the problems for
each person and for society as a whole. Perhaps you don’t believe that or you don’t
understand what this means. Perhaps you have questions. Feel free to contact our
pastor with your questions. Or join us for worship and ask your questions after the
worship service. You may also view our worship services streaming live on our web
site each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. & 6:00 p.m.
I, and the congregation of Preakness Valley, would like to meet you and get to know
you, and share with you the love of God the Father through Jesus Christ in both word
and deed. Please join us.
In Service to God and His Church,
Rev. David S. Klompien
