On this morning I preached from 1 John 4:7-11, I zoomed-in on Christ’s propitiatory sacrifice. What did Christ’s propitiatory work implicate? That Christ atoned for the sins of His church That Christ is the Lamb…the mercy seat That Christ fully appeased the wrath of God (for His church) That Christ reconciles the sinner to His
The more I grow in Christ (by God’s grace), the less important this day is to me, and the more important the other 364 days of the year are in regards to Christ. I look beyond the birth of Jesus, to see who Jesus truly was, truly is, and truly is to come. Why did
I strive to keep my messages ‘short and sweet.’ Well not too sweet, we need to let the salt out of our shakers. I did this outreach at two locations this morning, and evangelized another place as well. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
I preached from Romans 3:23-31. One lady engaged with several rhetorical questions, and another lady recited that famous man-made cliché, “God hates the sin, but loves the sinner!” I hope my answer to her was clear enough for this crowd. At this location I had a ‘narrow window of opportunity’ to convey my message; hence
As I’ve stated before, “It is the Heralds or ‘boots in the street’ that work in stressful, unsafe, unpredictable, uncontrolled, unrehearsed, and sometimes even dangerous work environments, all of which is done free of salary.” But this is the first time I’ve ever had to preach over a loud hydraulic shredding machine, and I’m not
During this outreach, I preached from Acts 17:30. When preaching the glorious Gospel to people, the Gospel brings more judgment upon them. That’s because they can no longer claim “ignorance” (i.e. I didn’t know). God did not overlook these people, in this line (or in any other line or crowd), and they were instructed. When
Lots of fruitful conversations afterwards. The Lord used three Christians to engage in some trilateral encouragement, I am thankful for them.
This is an excellent sermon on the ‘doctrine of definite atonement,’ preached by a scholarly of scholars. I was not saved because I ‘accepted Jesus into my heart.’ I was not saved because I ‘closed my eyes, bowed my head, and raised my hand’ in an unbiblical altar call. I was not saved because I
This expositional teaching of 1st John chapter 2:1-14 will include (but is not limited to) the doctrine of substitutionary atonement, loving our enemies (I share about one of my police shootings). Another refute of easy-believism, several more Biblical ‘tests’ to see if you are in the faith. Biblical love vs an unbiblical love, the spiritual
