Morning Outline:

One of those days...


Ever have "one of those days?"


Luke 8:22-25

It is clear from Scripture that we have been told by the Lord Jesus Christ what to do:

     A. Repent of sin; turn in faith; be born again!


B. Live in holiness; seek and know sound doctrine; personally be devoted Christ


C. Be in unity within the church; defend the church from untruth; strengthen fellow believers


D. Go through life telling people about Jesus and building those that come into disciples


E. Along the way, do not neglect the needs of the family: your family, the Christian family, the               

          human family


These items are not options nor suggestions, they are plain instructions from the Lord Jesus Christ in His Word.

They are as binding upon us as the instruction of Christ to the disciples here: Let us go over to the other side.

Then, He goes down in the boat and takes a nap. Let us not forget that Jesus is both fully God and fully human---the occasional sleep was part of who He is.

More than that, though, there is a teaching point here. How do we respond to the apparent physical absence of Jesus?

Here we find a good parallel for ourselves: Jesus has ascended, and at some point will return. It appears that, perhaps, He has gone to sleep on us.

Yet He has not.

Evening Outline:

Note: Much of the general idea of this series is drawn from J. Scott Duvall's Experiencing God's Story of Life and Hope. I would recommend you grab a copy.

What is love?

Showing love for one another

1 John 4:7-8; 1 Corinthians 13

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…
