The Gospel and Mortification

Last Sunday I preached from 1 Peter 2:11-12. Peter writes, “Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.” A...

The Gospel and Boldness

Good Afternoon Metro, Consider the following by John Piper..... “The obstacles we face making Christ known are great – with the anonymity of neighborhoods created by mobility; the entertainment industry that keeps people saturated with the world and numb to spiritual things; a thoroughly God-ignoring culture; a medical technology so advanced and so availabl...

The Gospel, Coke Zero, and Self-Disclosure

Hello Metro, I was informed recently by my 16 year-old daughter that I have “Dad-body.” I had never heard of this, so I asked for an explanation. “Dad-body”, at least from the perspective of a 16 year-old, is the condition that plagues many men in the mid-section. In short, my daughter is telling me that I have a little extra in the mid-section, ev...

The Gospel and Loving Others

  Good Morning Metro, We studied Ephesians 4:32-5:2, where the Apostle Paul provides a picture of what the community of the local church can be like when the gospel of Jesus Christ is on display in and through the lives of his people. I read a blog post on community, and found it both encouraging and challenging to me, because I could identify with some of the theme...

Hello Metro, “We are significant players in each other’s gospel narrative, and it is in relationship with one another that we experience the fullness of God in Christ.” by Milton Vincent Implicit throughout the New Testament is the encouragement and support of other believers in our walk with the Lord. The Apostle Paul seemed to always be praying for ot...

Do We Love Like This? Yes, But Do So More and More!

We studied 1 Thessalonians 2, where we read of a depth of love and mutual affection between Paul and the Thessalonians. It's preserved to inspire us to pursue the same kind of love for one another, made possible only through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Real, biblical love for one another is not easy. We are in a fight. Sin, namely our pride and selfishness, Satan, who is o...

The Gospel and Concern for the Poor

“But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you—see that you excel in this act of grace also. I say this not as a command, but to prove by the earnestness of others that your love also is genuine. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he be...

The Gospel & Sufficiency

Hello Metro, Here is a review of Sunday morning. Scripture Reference 2 Peter 1:3-4 Main Point The gospel contains all that I need for life and godliness. “The mere fact that God tells me to stay inside the gospel at all times must mean that He intends to supply all of my needs as long as I am abiding in that place of luxury.” —Milton Vincent Discus...

Transformed By Glory

So, have you made plans to go see the Grand Canyon yet? I hope that we all came away Sunday morning with this realization; no matter what we ever see in creation that inspires worship and awe, it doesn't compare to the glory we can experience when we get a glimpse of God! Take time to reread 2 Corinthians 3:7-4:6 this week. Note the progression from the glory that God gave...

The Gospel and My Daily Protection

Hello Metro, Inside of the gospel I have all the protection I need from the powers of evil that rage against me. What a promise! Oh I need to not only know this, but appropriate this in prayer, in thinking and in living. I see a connection with every stumble in my life; a failure to live inside the good of the Gospel. Let’s remember Metro, that Jesus battled Satan&...

The Gospel and the Power of God

Hello Metro, Here is a review of Sunday morning.   Scripture Reference 1 Corinthians 1:20-24 Main Point Outside of heaven, the power of God in its highest density is found inside the gospel. “Indeed, God’s power is seen in erupting volcanoes, in the unimaginably hot boil of our massive sun, and in the lightning speed of a recently discovered star se...

The Gospel and Repetition

Hello Metro, Here is a review of Sunday morning.   Scripture 1 Corinthians 15:1-4   Main Point The New Testament teaches that Christians ought to hear the gospel as much as non-Christians do. “Re-preaching the gospel and then showing how it applied to life was Paul’s choice method for ministering to believers, thereby providing a divinely insp...
