Concluding Notes:

1. I do have the rough audio of Sunday Night’s Q&A session, but I’m not sure yet that it’s useful for posting.

2. I am not sure how to improve video quality with the current equipment.

3. If you want to subscribe, here’s a list:

A. iTunes for audio subscription link is here.

4. Yes, I think I’m not getting a lot of plays on each service or hits on each blog, but in total it’s a decent reach. A social media expert might suggest changes, but this is free-to-cheap, where I have to live right now.

Morning Outline (sermon doesn’t always quite match it)

1.3. Summary Sentence
The presence of God requires the unmeasured sacrifice.

1.4. Background to Text
The Temple is constructed; built, pretty, a worthy Temple for a worthy God.

Solomon has used the wealth of David and the power of Israel to accomplish this.

1.5. Major Theme in Text
Unmeasured sacrifice: first, for the Presence of God to come.

Unmeasured sacrifice: second, when the Presence of God has come.

1.6. Concepts of the Text
1. We must count the cost and realize that it is beyond measure.

2. We must count that Jesus has fulfilled the need, dying in our place because the blood of sheep and oxen can never take away sin.

3. When God's presence is in the life of the believer, then we are consumed with Him, not our own views.

4. When God's presence is in the life of the church, we set aside our own desire to be "useful" and worship.

5. When God's presence is clear, we know His lovingkindness

Even though it is still just a glimpse

1.7. Application Point
A: Confess our sin--pride, anger, distraction--the call is for us all to come to the presence of God

B: Share the news of the sacrifice: One aspect that we miss here is that some of the "all Israel" that came would have been ceremonially unclean. They needed sacrifice to be able to be in the presence of God.

We are the same way: without the substitution of Jesus for us, we are unclean. Yet the Sacrifice is provided for us and the multitude. It is not about the need but about the abundance of the provision.

C: Release our need to be the powers that be, our need to be in charge, to dominate the schedule. I do not doubt that the singers, the priests, the ministers, and the people all had plans. The presence of God changed their plans

Evening Outline

1.2. Summary Sentence
If we are honoring the Lord God in our life, it will be clear to others.

1.3. Background to Text
Background on Sheba/Sabea/Sabellians/

Relationships going forward

Fame/trade

1.4. Major Theme in Text
God's wisdom is evident if it is in your life. You cannot hide it.

1.5. Application Point
Gain the wisdom of following the Lord; make it known; share it with others.

Do not neglect God's full truth:

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…
