You Broke the Whole Thing: James 2:8-13 May 5 AM

One Problem, One Solution

Consider Sins (use Galatians 5, Revelations 22 for lists)

Galatians 5:19–21

19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality,

20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions,

21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Revelation 22:15

15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.

Sin has costs:

1. Emotional

2. Societal

3. Spiritual

4. Physical

5. Eternal

There is but one solution

It is not: to act like there are no sins anymore

It is not: to sort out the lesser sins and ignore them

It is not: to criminalize some sin while embracing other sin

It is not: to shame sinners into self-destruction

It is:

The Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

The surrender of our destroyed lives

The presence of the Holy Spirit

The imputation of righteousness

The freedom of our will to follow

The whole thing is broken: all the Law, all of life,

Assurance: Romans 8:15-16 May 5 PM

1. Baptists are known for "once saved, always saved"

2. What does this mean?

     A. Saved by God

     B. Maintained by God

     C. Sustained by God

3. Hold to the assurance of salvation:

     A. For eternity

     B. Out of love

     C. Not out of obligation (Remarkable love of God, that honors obligation without acting only out of obligation)

     D. God does nothing that He does not desire to do: His love for you, His salvation is because of His choice of you.

     E. Therefore, rest in the stability of that love:

          I. You cannot earn it

          II. You cannot lose it

          III. You cannot improve on it

          IV. You cannot do enough to deserve it

          V. You can only live in light of 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: By the Waters of Babylon

Worship. It is what the church does as we strive to honor God with our lips and our lives. And then, many churches argue about worship. I have about a half-dozen books on my shelf about worship, but adding Scott Aniol’s By the Waters of Babylon to the shelf has been excellent.

First of all, Aniol’s work is not based on solving a musical debate. While that branch of worship is often the most troublesome in the local church, By the Waters of Babylon takes a broader view. The starting point is the place of the church. That place is a parallel of Psalm 137, where the people of God, Israel, found themselves in a strange land. The people of God, again, find themselves in a strange land.
Second, in summary, the book works logically to the text of Scripture, primarily Psalm 137 but well-filled with other passages. Then it works outward from how the text addresses the problems submitted in the first chapter into how worship, specifically corporate worship, should look in the 21st century Weste…
