This is one of the great New Testament passages on the nature of the Christian ministry, especially the work of preaching. If you scan over the text before us you’ll see the different synonyms that Paul uses for preaching. Verse 2, look at the passage with me; 1 Thessalonians chapter 2 verse 2. “We had boldness in our God to declare to you the gospel of God.” Verse...

Rewire

Paul, you will remember, has been defending his ministry. He would not take a salary from the Corinthians. Some of them felt that was grounds to begin undermining his ministry. They could not control him, you see, if they couldn’t pay for him. And so they began to insinuate that perhaps Paul ought not to be trusted. “He’s not a real apostle, after all.” And so for most of chapter...

Rewire

1 Corinthians chapter 7 – let me just give you an outline of some things to look for. This is where we'll be going as we work through the material and then we'll read it together after we pray.

Let’s look briefly at Ahab’s faith because it does help us understand more clearly Obadiah’s faith. It provides a backdrop or a foil for it. Ahab’s faith is simple to understand. It’s faith in Ahab. It’s faith in Ahab. Ahab has been faced with the man of God speaking the Word of God, “There’s no more rain until I say,” and he knows why – because he has...

Prepare Him Room

I wonder if you’ve put up your Christmas tree yet. That was my duty yesterday. I was out in the rain choosing a tree; I got cold and wet. There were pine needles in my hair and resin on my elbows. And then there was the sanctifying business of wrestling the thing through the front door into the stand without denuding the tree of every needle that it...

I watched some footage recently of people from all over the world who were blind but who through various medical techniques were enabled to see again – surgery for cataracts or retinal implants or other medical techniques. In one scene, the camera focused in on the faces of children, many of whom have been blind their whole lives, on that moment when after cataract surgery the bandages were...

If you would turn with me in your Bibles to 2 Kings chapter 11; it’s found on page 317 in your pew Bibles. One of the songs we’ve sung over the last few days and weeks, “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” you know the first line, “O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie.” That couldn’t be true, could it? We know what...

Stories that Stick

There were only thirty-seven laps left. He was in the lead. His fuel light was on, and a caution flag was waving because a wreck had just happened. And yet he radioed back to the crew, “No, I think I can make it.” They warned him saying, “Your light’s on. It’s thirty-seven laps.” And he said, “No, I think I can make it.” And he was in the...

Gospel Pattern: Old Testament Stories & The Grace of God

If you would turn with me to Daniel chapter 6 or you can look there on your handouts.  Martin Lloyd-Jones once said that “everything we do in the Christian life is easier than prayer.”  Everything we do in the Christian life is easier than prayer, and yet prayer is a vital component of the Christian life.  It’s a vital component of how God works in us and nurtures...

Scandalous Grace: Jesus' Meals with Sinners

Well after a week break from the Mission Conference we’re picking up The Scandalous Grace series as David has already told you this evening.  Last time we were here together for this meeting Ralph Kelley looked at the meal that Jesus shared with Zacchaeus, who was a short, despised tax-collector, a notorious sinner, and we saw the grace of God in that narrative.  Tonight we’re going to look...
