Thank you choir, orchestra and Babbie Mason! Isn't it great having Babbie with us again at RSBC! Thank you Babbie for always keeping the focus of your music on Jesus! And choir .. aren't you glad that Babbie will be joining you in December for our Christmas Celebration? I can hardly wait!

Now join me in the OT book of Isaiah. And once there .. turn to chapter 50. Believe it or not ... if you live long enough ... you're going to find yourself in times of darkness .. in times of difficulty. The Bible says in Job 14.1, "Man who is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble."

His presence! His power! His peace! Mixed with His grace is the secret to surviving times of darkness! I would rather be in the dark with Him than to be in the light without Him! Well .. that's what we find here in Isaiah 50!
