Give Jerusalem priority: Psalm 137.6

“May my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember you, and do not give Jerusalem priority over whatever gives me the most joy.”

Psalm 137.6

Sing holy songs to entertain pagans? How wrong! Let God judge the wicked, while his people put his holy place above all else.

Earthly joys must give way to the cause of Christ. Am I bending my faith to please the world? Is the kingdom of God my top priority?

(For the Christian, today’s “Jerusalém” is to dwell in Christ.)

The smallest congregation I’ve been to …

The smallest congregation I’ve been to is the one I’m presently a member of – the Montana St. congregation. We run between 15-20 members each Lord’s Day. In the 1960’s the congregation had over 600 members – standing room only – filled both the auditorium and balcony. We can plainly see the decline in spiritual priorities over the past 50 years. A sad commentary indeed.
