Speaker : Retired Professor David Lau
Matthew 18:20 (Listen)
20 For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
Hymn: TLH 467, st. 1,2: Built on the Rock the Church doth Stand
1. Built on the Rock the Church doth stand,
Even when steeples are falling;
Crumbled have spires in every land,
Bells still are chiming and calling,
Calling the young and old to rest,
But above all the soul distrest,
Longing for rest everlasting.
2. Surely in temples made with hands,
God, the Most High, is not dwelling;
High above earth His temple stands,
All earthly temples excelling.
Yet He whom heavens cannot contain
Chose to abide on earth with men,
Built in our bodies His temple.
