This Lent during worship we will be seeking to discern the empty promises of the world from those sure and trustworthy promises of God.
At each service blank checks will be distributed featuring one of seven promises of God found in the New Testament. Glenn Clark says of these promises, "never were gilt-edged securities issued by any corporation in the United States, more sound and certain than the promises of God." While U.S. currency is "placed in banks or invested in bonds and stocks that are subject to fluctuations of Wall Street...no fluctuations have yet been able to deflate by one jot or tittle the value in the Great Promises stored away in the vaults of the Great Bank of God." The only thing required is "to hallow and respect the name of God who made the promises....Pray, first of all, for a faith that is equal to this great requirement, and then step up to the window of God's love and countersign His promises with a signature that says, "Father, I believe in Your Word."
