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.

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…

Curiosity and the Faithlife Study Bible

Good morning! Today I want to take a look at the NIV Faithlife Study Bible. Rather than spend the whole post on this particular Study Bible, I’m going to hit a couple of highlights and then draw you through a few questions that I think this format helps with.



First, the basics of the NIV Faithlife Study Bible (NIVFSB, please): the translation is the 2011 New International Version from Biblica. I’m not the biggest fan of that translation, but that’s for another day. It is a translation rather than a paraphrase, which is important for studying the Bible. Next, the NIVFSB is printed in color. Why does that matter? This version developed with Logos Bible Software’s technology and much of the “study” matter is transitioning from screen to typeface. The graphics, maps, timelines, and more work best with color. Finally, you’ve got the typical “below-the-line” running notes on the text. Most of these are explanations of context or highlights of parallels, drawing out the facts that we miss by …

Foolishness: 1 Corinthians 1

In Summary: 1 Corinthians opens with the standard greeting of a letter from the Apostle Paul. He tells who he is with (Sosthenes) and who he is writing to. In this case, that is the “church of God that is in Corinth.” He further specifies that this church is made up of those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be saints. 
He then expresses the blessing/greeting of “grace and peace” from God. From there, Paul reflects on his initial involvement with the Corinthian people and the beginning of the church. After that, though, there are problems to deal with and Paul is not hesitant to address them. He begins by addressing the division within the church. Apparently, the church had split into factions, some of which were drawn to various personalities who had led the church in times past. There is no firm evidence, or even a suggestion, that Paul, Cephas, Apollos, or anyone else had asked for a faction in their name. Further, the “I follow Christ” faction may not have been any le…
