From J. C. Philpot's Daily Portions ...... March 31
"For he has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin;
that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."-–2
Our blessed Lord offered himself for sin; that is, that
he might put away sin by the sacrifice of himself--"Who his own self
our sins in his own body on the tree" (1 Pet. 2:24). It was
necessary either that the sinner should suffer in his own person, or
of a substitute. Jesus became this substitute; he stood virtually in
sinner's place, and endured in his holy body and soul the punishment
him; for he "was numbered with the transgressors." He thus, by the
of his most precious blood, opened in his sacred body a fountain for
and all uncleanness (Zech. 13:1).
The cross was the place on which this sacrifice was
offered; for as the blood of the slain lamb was poured out at the
the altar, sprinkled upon its horns, and burned in its ever-enduring
so our blessed Lord shed his blood upon the cross. He there endured
wrath of God to the uttermost; he there put away sin by the
himself; he there offered his holy soul and body, the whole of his
sacred humanity, in union with his eternal Deity, as an expiation
sins of his people.
Thus all their sin was atoned for, expiated, put away,
blotted out, and will never more be imputed to them. This is the
mystery of redeeming love and atoning blood. Here the cross shines
all its splendor; here God and man meet at the sacrifice of the
here, amid the sufferings and sorrows, the groans and tears, the
obedience of God's dear Son in our nature, grace reigns through
righteousness unto eternal life.

The Believer's Daily Remembrance-The disciples were in a storm, surrounded by danger, and filled with
Pastor James Smith (1802-1862): “Where is your faith?” - Luke 8:25
(March 23: MORNING)
fear; they apply to Jesus. This was right. They doubt His care, question
His love, and cry, “We perish.” This was wrong. Jesus demands, “Where
is your faith?” May He not put the same question to us? We have His
Word, but do we heartily believe it? We speak of His love, but do we
confidently trust it? We read of His care, but do we see our safety in
it? We often seem to believe anyone sooner than Jesus; to trust any word
more than His Word; and therefore we are cast down, fearful and
distressed. Let us this day endeavour to fix our faith steadily upon His
precious Word. Let us believe in His particular providence. Let us
commune with Him as our firm and faithful Friend. He says, “Let not your
heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me.” He is worthy
of credit. He cannot deceive. He deserves our confidence. He will not
neglect. He encourages our hope, and promises, “If ye shall ask any
thing in My Name, I will do it.” Do you believe this? Do you believe it
when you pray? If not, “Where is your faith?”
Tossed about with every wind;
O, how quickly doth my heart
From the living God depart;
O my God, Thy grace impart,
To fix and bind my wandering heart.

Its good as a pastor to see what people are up to on Sunday mornings and count the cars in other church parking lots.
The people from early mass were gathering at McDonald's it was interesting to over hear their conversations on church.
Any ways I have a couple of books on the go.
First... The Reason for God by T.Keller
Secondly... The China Study.
