Morning Sermon: Authority Mark 1:21-28 (audio)

"Authority."

First: the confrontation of the demonic. There is no power that Jesus fears nor cannot command; further He is in charge immediately…there is no need for Him to get up to speed.

Second: knowledge does not equal salvation/faith. The demon knows who Jesus is. He’s still doomed.

Jesus teaches with authority.

Jesus heals and delivers with authority.

Does anyone else?

No. Not anyone else.

What does this teach us?

What is authority? The right to instruct others about truth and demand they comply with it.

1. Who has authority? The Word of God—remember John 1!

2. Who does not have authority? Any thing, any one not the Word of God

3. Where does authority sit in the church? The Word of God

4. Where does authority sit in the life of believers? The Word of God

5. Where does authority sit in the world/created order? The Word of God

What do we do, then? We teach other people The Word of God. We do not attempt to take the authority that belongs to God alone. The Word, which we see in the inspired text of Scripture, is where all authority sits.

Not in you. Not in me. Not in some council or coalition, not in some college or convention, but in the Word of God.

Evening Sermon: John 1:14 (audio)

Concluding Notes:

1. I do have the video of the presentation on Bible translations, but didn’t get it uploaded.

2. We use a set-place camera so that no one is spending church being a “cameraperson” instead of a participant.

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…
