A Summer to Remember: Fellowship around God's Word

All too soon campers head for home, filled with memories of their time in the sun. Strangers have become lifelong buddies; some met future spouses; others claimed the faith of their fathers as their own.

This summer a dozen camps with Orthodox Presbyterian ties will be geared for kids or families. Some focus on fun and fellowship, while others concentrate on teaching—but all are fueled by God's Word. Whether the camp has tents or air-conditioned cabins, somewhere in the OPC is a camp for you. Read more

Our Home in Glory Land

My wife, Anna Marie, passed away unexpectedly on August 12, 2005. I miss her dearly. Because of her death, I began meditating seriously on the life hereafter. This meditation shares some of the encouragements I received from my study.

Christians as Servants of Christ

No one wants to be a servant or a slave. However, none of us probably minds being called a servant of God or a servant of Christ. Indeed, we shouldn't even mind being called a slave of God or of Christ. After all, he owns us—and we should be glad that he does, because if he had not purchased us and made us his possession, we would still be slaves to sin (Rom. 6:16–19).

But, while it sounds better to be a slave of God than a slave of sin, the very idea of being a slave probably rubs us the wrong way. After all, slavery has caused great pain in our nation's history and elsewhere in modern times—such as the enslavement of Christians in Sudan by Muslims. And even apart from such emotional issues, we love our freedom and we hate to be told what to do. Read more

Helps for Worship #18: Response of Praise

"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord ...
for He has clothed me
with the garments of salvation." (Isaiah 61:l0)

At no point in our worship should we do things thoughtlessly, simply "going through the motions." This is especially true in our singing. "Sing praises with understanding" (Ps. 47:7). "I will sing with the spirit [i.e., in the power of the Holy Spirit, filled with the Holy Spirit, from a heart made new by the Holy Spirit], and I will also sing with the understanding" (1 Cor. 14:15). These are standing orders for the church in every age! Read more
