Sermon Recap for August 16

Good morning! Here are yesterday’s sermons. We’re searching for the background noise on the video feed. But it’s not easy to find….

Morning Sermon: Born and Reborn: John 3:1-8 (Audio)

Primary Theological Point: What should we learn? None are good enough for the Kingdom

Primary Practical Point: What should we do? Accept and proclaim grace through the new birth!

Take Home Action: Read 1 John this week. 1 Chapter a Day.

Preach Points:

  1. Church: /What is there in our lives that would cause anyone to say "We know that you are from God, because no one would do ? if not from God." ?
  2. Salvation: / Everyone needs it. Including you.
  3. Mission: / Everyone. Everywhere. Our mission as a church is to "Walk with Jesus and take as many people with us as possible."  WE WILL NOT BE IN THE BUSINESS OF PRESORTING PEOPLE BY RACE, CULTURE, OR LANGUAGE.
  4. Families: / Expect accordingly--even your darling children need the Lord.

 

Evening Sermon: Everything Stops Joshua 10 (audio)

 

Primary Theological Point: What should we learn? There is always time for obedience.

Primary Practical Point: What should we do? Commit first to God, obey to the point of exhaustion.

Take Home Action: Put the opening of your schedule in God's hands, every day.

 

Preach Points:

  1. Obey God and find:
    1. Hailstones to help (v. 11): not always the help you expect or even want, but it comes
    2. Miracles (v. 12): not everything happens logically
    3. Time (v. 13): need more? Obedience provides all the time needed to obey
    4. Success (v. 20): a great slaughter, while unpleasant, was good.
    5. More to do (v 29 ff): The reward for doing well, accomplishing the difficult? More work to do...

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…
