A Call To Worship

King David wrote in Psalm 29:2: “Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”

Hymn—“Bless the Lord”

Scripture Reading—Psalm 46:1-11

”God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.”

Mr. Charles Breed served as the Pastor of Wellesley Street Strict Baptist Chapel, Manor Park, Stepney (1925-1945). He also served as the Principal of the Strict Baptist Bible Institute (1947-1962). Ernest Kevan, the first Principal of London Bible College, believed Mr. Breed was one of the sharpest theologians of his generation.

Philip Grist, writing for the Strict Baptist Historical Society, gives the following account of Mr. Breed: “On the surface, he appeared to be rather austere and distant. That was not true. He was extremely deaf, a condition brought on by a very traumatic incident in his life. Behind the outward austerity was a very warm man. He loved children and they loved him. His Sunday School anniversary addresses are memorable. He kept children spell-bound. His student criticisms were always fair and gracious. Indeed, I found him a great encourager. He possessed a remarkable memory. Most of his sermons were preached without notes and all who remember Charles Breed will never forget his conclusions. At one Fellowship Of Youth Rally at St.John’s Wood there was apparently complete silence for at least a couple of minutes as the congregation reflected on the powerful evangelistic call. Mr. Breed had a wealth of stories, many being quite hilarious. However, he could be severe because he believed in respect and discipline. His own life was very disciplined. Because of his logical mind, few people could argue against Mr. Breed!”

Mr. Breed went home to be with the Lord in August 1967.
