Week 17 Spiritual Gifts

More of a teaching than a preaching moment but critical to the life of the Church!

What should we be doing as “the Church”?  There are so many answers to this question here are a very few.

 

Luke the Gospel in Action 12:35 Watching and Waiting

What should the Church be doing?  As a Christian what are my primary responsibilities?  These questions are approached in Luke 12:35 and following.

Luke the Gospel in Action 12:22 Your Work and the Sovereignty of God pt 2

It’s been called the “Sermon on the Amount” but this annual stewardship tied in nicely with Jesus’ sermon on “Do Not Worry”.  Hope you enjoy and consider your giving to God too!

A Crash Course in Church History

This is the audio of an old lesson that was a “prequel” to a series on the Westminster Confession of Faith. Thought I’d upload it here for those new members who had not heard it yet. A few points I’d like to make here – I’m not a professor I make mistakes in my presentations, also towards the end I ran out of time and made a few points “inelegantly” so let me clarify here.

This wound up being a Church History Class with a little bit on the actual reformation itself but still it was a fun class to teach. I hope it will provide some edification to those who listen to it.
I was pointing out that in Church history there is not some point at which the Church was perfect. The Reformers did not have a “perfect point in history” to shoot for instead they were very truly trying to get back to the third century where at least the doctrine of the Church was clear and codified. Many point to the “First Century Church” as some form of perfect moment in history but this is not reflected in Scripture such as: “You foolish Galatians who has bewitched you?”
