Sermon Recap for October 1

Before we get started—the news from Las Vegas is horrifying, which is becoming far too common. Do not become hardened to tragedy, even though it keeps happening and life must keep going for every one who isn’t right there in the midst of it.

Here is what you'll find: after each sermon title, there's an "audio" link that allows you to play or download that sermon's audio file. Then there should be an embedded Youtube Link to the sermon.

If you'd like, you can subscribe to the audio feed here: for iTunes users. Other audio feeds go here:

The video is linked on my personal Youtube Page here:

Last night we had Darrel Ray from Arkansas Baptists with us, and he’ll be back next Sunday night. I’m saving his sermons for their own post. And for his permission to post them.

Sunday, October 1 (direct audio)

October 1 AM Titus 2
  1. Titus, one of Paul's troubleshooters
  2. Crete--the whole island: Minotaurs and Labyrinths, Cretans and Gluttons, In the Roman province of Cyrenaica, or Cyrene--think Simon of Cyrene. And possibly the extended family of Mark
  1. Establishing leaders for the churches
  2. So that Titus can go elsewhere (Dalmatia, perhaps? 2 Timothy 4)
God-honoring people should teach others to be more like Jesus; Christ-followers should learn from other God-honoring people.
  1. Pass on what you know
  2. Learn from others
    1. Not just sit there waiting your turn
    2. Or waiting to jump in and criticize
  3. Recognize that the main mission of the church is to reach the lost and to do so we need to know the Gospel

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: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
