but that’s up to you.)

 

Sunday morning we were in 1 John 2:7-11. Here’s the outline:

1. New commandment/Old Commandment: 

Not a new set of laws or legalistic followings

Yet still a command

Not a novelty or unheard of thought,

But one that echoes from the Beginning

2. The Light is shining

God's people follow it.

God's people follow it together.

God's people follow it together in harmony.

God's people follow it together in harmony without hatred.

The closing challenge was this: write down the names of 3 people:

1. A person in your own household

2. A person in church that you don’t know/are not super-relational with.

3. A person that is not in church anywhere: either never has been or used-to-be way back when…

Once you have those three names, here’s what to do with the names:

Every time you eat this week, pray for those three people. Pray that: 1. God would work in their lives. Nothing more specific is necessary: you don’t have to detail what you think God should do. You probably shouldn’t do that anyway. 2. That God will show you how to show love to that person this week.

That’s it. Every time you eat. Meals, snacks, every time. Pray for these folks.

And when God answers part #2: do it. Don’t pray for God to provide an answer and then ignore Him. That’s not a good plan.

Evening sermon was 1 John 2:12-14. Here’s the outline:

1. Little Children: those who are fresh to the kingdom

2. Fathers: Those who have long been in the kingdom as well as carrying other wisdom

3. Young men: those in the middle.

Fundamentals:

1. All know the Father. All have been forgiven---for the sake of the name of Christ.

2. Young men: have the Word, have strength, and have overcome the evil one

     A. understand "overcome the evil one" as making the first strides towards maturity    

     B. The first target is derailing new or undiscipled believers

3. Fathers: wisdom. From both time in serving the Lord God and from life.

Closing challenge: find people to grow with. People that you can help grow, and seek out those who can help you grow. And do it.

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…
