Sermon Recap: December 30, 2012

Well, this should have been up yesterday, but I didn’t get it done. So, here are the sermons from the last Sunday of the year:

Morning Sermon

Morning Audio: (link)

The End and the Beginning: Revelation 22:1-9 & Genesis 2:8-9

Our hope as all things end

Central Theme:

    The perfection of God's Purposes

Objective Statement:

If we trust in Christ, there is nothing to fear in the end of all things     

Rationale:

     1. Creation was originally good

     2. Eternity will see the restoration of that good

     3. This means the elimination of the curse

     4. To eliminate the curse means eliminating the source of it

     5. Sin will have no place there, as it had no place in the beginning

Responses:

1. Consider your standing before Almighty God: only perfection will be allowed. Are you perfect?

2. If you are not perfect, how do you plan to enter in? Only with perfection does one enter eternity.

3. If you know that eternity is settled, how do you handle today? Do you work as unto the Lord God?

4. What will we do? Evil will not be there and to make life as like unto eternity as possible, we must fight evil.


Implementation:

1. Surrender to Christ

2. Consider your own holiness: if you find obeying Christ dull or foolish now, what will eternity be like?

3. Consider your relationships: you will walk into eternity with others. If you cannot bear them now, how will you bear eternity?

4. Consider your relationships: will you let someone go into that time without striving to draw them to Christ?

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…
