I was watching a sermon this morning on Romans chapter 3 – one of my favorite books of the Bible – by a pastor I had never heard of before.
I was impressed by the way he could take concepts that we new Christians in the 21st century have difficulty understanding, and explaining not only what they are but why we have difficulty understanding them. He also without apology explains what the church is doing wrong in it’s explanation of the Gospel.
Paul Washer became a believer while studying at the University of Texas. After graduating, he moved to Peru and served there as a missionary for ten years, during which time he founded the HeartCry Missionary Society in order to support Peruvian church planters. HeartCry’s work now supports indigenous missionaries throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Eurasia, North America, and Latin America.
Paul now serves as one of the laborers with the HeartCry Missionary Society. He and his wife Charo have four children: Ian, Evan, Rowan, and Bronwyn
Here is the Roman 3 Video I watched this morning. I pray that it blesses you the way it has me.
I was watching a sermon from John MacArthur today which I felt I needed to share. Pastor MacArthur does a phenomenal job sticking with Scripture when describing what Spiritual Warfare is, what it isn’t, and how to test the spirits. He speaks of who is responsible for doing it and why we do it.
He explains in great detail who the Holy Spirit is, and how He works in our lives. And he warns of the wolves in sheep’s clothing today, inside our church.
John MacArthur – Testing the Spirits.
The title from the week’s post from my Pastor Tyler Sollie. He writes in his post below that we must be intentional about our faith and life. Enjoy!
Tyler Sollie’s “Mind the Gap”
As I am sitting here in my home, a day that I will most likely remain alone, I must be strive to be like Jesus. It is so easy to just “let your hair down” and let your flesh take over. After all, who is watching? The dog? He doesn’t care. But no matter where we are or who we are with, we need to be cognizant of the fact that we should be walking in the service He calls us to, in the way He wants us to live. We need to always be spending time with Him, asking Him in what areas of our lives we may need to repent. I have a daily need to embrace what 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says:
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NIV)
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of Godmay be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
and know that the Word of God is meant, not just for us to feel good about being believers. No, not at all! It is for our training, reproof, correction and training in righteousness. Let us seek Him and His righteousness and not get so busy with our tasks serving that we forget that although we may be in the world, we are not of the world. We will not look like the world, we are not supposed to. We need to be an example for others and show ourselves approved to God.
