Morning Text: Genesis 22

Outline:

I. It is the right of God to demand all that we have:

     A. The right is His by virtue of Creation

     B. The right is His by demand due to our sin

     C. The right is His by nature of His promise

     D. All that we have is rightfully His

II. That which is His:

     A. We must not profane

          1. By using for unholy actions

          2. By giving to another

     B. We must not keep

          1. For ourselves

          2. For our glory

     C. We must not hoard

          1. Though it is God's gift to us

          2. Though the world advises that we are

     D. We are sinners by nature

          1. We are incapable of handling the blessings of God

          2. We are incapable of giving enough

III. But for the Ram

     A. God alone can determine an acceptable sacrifice 22:2

     B. God alone can provide the acceptable sacrifice 22:8, 12-14

     C. God alone can supply our future need 22:20-24

 

Evening Text is Genesis 23. Written outline is way too scattered to be of use here. The essence of the idea: In his lifetime, all Abraham gets of the Promised Land is this: a gravesite. Don't put your hope on what you see, but trust the promise of the Lord God.

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
