    seems right to me – so, let me be the first to say ‘amen’

    “We may be moved and induced by the testimony of the Church to an high and reverent esteem of the Holy Scripture. “

    This is the high water mark of Reformed confessions…we’ll see what we can learn over the coming weeks.

  3. BrianD says:

    Brian H. preached on Ephesians 4:1,17-24. Had to miss the last half of his first sermon for personal reasons. He did say moralism and the gospel don’t mix (my paraphrase).

    I’ll have to wait for the podcast. Right now the greatest value to me of going to near him live is getting out of the house and seeing all kinds of people I don’t know. An extroverts paradise, an introverts purgatory. Struggling with this and other things now.

    Michael,

    Have you ever done a post on which confession came out when and such? I love reading them, especially since prior to here I had never heard of most of them. I think it would be cool to have an idea of when and why each was set forth.

  5. Michael says:

    TonyP,

    That is a great idea…I’ve been negligent about that.

    I’ll fix that. 🙂

  6. Michael says:

    after Trey is skateboarded out…that is. 😉

  7. TonyP. says:

    Michael,

    Priorities are a must! 😀
    And in my vast magnaminity I both excuse and forgive my brother’s negligence. 😉

    See how great I am? 8)

    Preached on the Restoration of the Kingdom to Israel in Acts 1:1-15

    I preached that the destiny of Israel was Jesus and still is… and that in Jesus Israel blessed all the nations and fulfilled their historical destiny …

    Next week we continue our study in the Acts of the Apostles…

    TonyP., Are you sure you aren’t a CC pastor? 😉

  10. Captain Kevin says:

    Pastor preached on compromise and repentance this morning from the letter to the church at Pergamus. Gospel? No, but other than that, it really was a good sermon.

    Couldn’t attend any corporate meeting today. In fact, due to my new vocation, I haven’t been able to do so for over a year.

    However, as I drove alone in my 387 Peterbilt along the Columbia River Gorge early this morning, the Holy Spirit ministered to me in such a beautiful way… reminding me once again that the Father, Son & Spirit love me with an unfailing love. So much so, that while I was dead in my trespasses and sins, the Son gave His life as a sacrifice…redeemed & reconciled me unto to God.

    What a gift! In fact, Paul refers to it as a “free gift”, no ulterior motives, no strings attached, no requirement on my part to earn it, polish or improve upon it, or, even secure it.

    Romans 4

    In light of that, I have been sensing from the Lord that it’s time for me to put down the sword in my life. Make things right with those I may offended, or, who have offended me in some way.

    Could be that I’m just getting older now and realize that the only thing we really have of any meaning is our relationships with others, especially with those of the household of faith.

    I was reminded today of old Paul and his request of Timothy to send Mark to him because he was a benefit to him in the work of the gospel. Probably even more than that, old Paul yearned to just fellowship in the Lord with Mark.

    My best friend is attending Asbury. Part of his summer curriculum is in the Chaplaincy program at a very large hospital. He told me that those he ministers to on the verge of death, have a common theme. Namely, they wish they had devoted more time prioritizing and valuing their relationships.

    He told me of one man on his death bed weeping and sobbing because one of his son’s he had wronged refused to forgive him. Even though he had repeatedly attempted to reconcile. The father was an alcoholic and had fallen on tough times financially and STOLE his son’s identity! To which the son, refused to ever speak to him again. The father has repented and knows he is forgiven. However, his sorrow comes from fearing what will happen to his son in the future if he just can’t forgive what his father did to him.

    That BLEW my mind…

    May we never burn our bridges…

    John 13:34

  12. Scott says:

    On that note, I forgot to add this…

    If I have sinned against anyone on this blog by being been untoward, unkind, rude or any other such non-Christ like way, I ask that you would forgive me.

  13. TonyP. says:

    CK,

    Nope, just truly amazed at how wonderful I am. And modest…. 🙂

  14. TonyP. says:

    Scott,

    Awesome, just awesome.

  15. Tim says:

    We looked at 1 John 4:12-19 – the wonderful assurances of salvation that we have in Christ. We have assurance that God abides in us & we in Him by: the presence of the Holy Spirit – the confession we have of Christ – and the perfected love of God in our lives.

    Notes are here.

    Long, but good day. Preached two messages about the value of gathering to worship. As part of the message, I interviewed our worship pastor.

    After services we had a newcomer’s lunch: tacos. Lot of new faces!

    Then taught a membership class.

    Ended the day with a missionary presentation in the evening.

    All good, and glad to see God working in a multitude of ways…

  17. Captain Kevin says:

    Wow Piney, that’s a full day! Do you have a weekday that you take for your own “sabbath?”

  18. Captain Kevin says:

    Scott, you’re a blessing!

  19. Scott says:

    Ty, Captain! So are you 🙂
