Worship: For Heaven’s Sake One of the four definite assignments required for God’s people on the Day of Atonement included “an offering made by fire.” Two of the four (an holy convocation and an affliction of souls) were already discussed. The morning’s talk centered on the offering made by fire.
Although it was a requirement on the Day of Atonement, it was also a burnt offering made every morning and every evening, symbolizing a “constant dependence upon the atoning blood of Christ.” (PP 352) Especially would this dependence be appropriately included in atonement services. It was expressive of a complete consecration to God. It expressed that the whole body, soul, and spirit were God’s in “thanksgiving and gratitude to Him who gave Himself as a whole burnt offering.” It was completely consumed.
“Now, in the evening of the Judgment day, at the time of the evening sacrifice, the time when ‘the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is’ 1 Cor. 3:13-15, shall we not return to our first love, once more dedicating to God all that we have and are for the finishing of His work?”
Pastor Flemons read a paragraph from Signs of the Times, that says this: “Those who love their Redeemer will rejoice at every opportunity to share with him in humiliation, shame, and reproach. The love they bear their Lord makes suffering, for his sake, sweet; and they know that if they suffer with him they shall also reign with him in his glory. This experience of suffering for Christ’s sake is absolutely essential to the spiritual life of the Christian. There can be no true, vital godliness without seasons of trial and grief. We are chosen in the furnace of affliction, and the trial of our faith is more precious than gold.”

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, extended the opportunity for anyone to ask questions during the health segment. In lieu of health questions, listeners (including Sis. Annette, the person for special prayer at #4690, and Sis. Chester) shared testimonies and prayer requests. Upon learning of Sis. Chester’s birthday, Pastor Flemons sang a very special birthday song in her honor.
