For The Lord's Day

Trinity Sunday*

Meditation before Worship – “Until our consciences are bound by Scripture so that our actions are the product of conviction, we will be the victims of fluctuating fancies and susceptible to the “security” that is offered in conformity to a long list of human taboos. Convinced, grace-filled, spirit-led obedience to God’s Law really is the pathway to freedom. Remember, the law is not the dynamic of our sanctification, God’s love for us is not on the basis of duty, but neither does His love for us free us from duty.” 
 ~ Alistair Begg, Pathway to Freedom

*The celebration of Trinity Sunday by much of Christendom dates from the consecration of Thomas Becket as Archbishop of Canterbury in 1162. Within Protestantism Anglicans, Lutherans and Methodists mark the day. This Sunday begins the longest period in the church year, which continues until Advent.
