Acts 6:1-6

Acts 6:1-6

In his book, Paul's Vision for the Deacons, Alexander Strauch says that there are two primary offices that the Lord has given to the church: the office of elder and the office of deacon. To put it simply, the Lord has given the elders to oversee the spiritual needs of the church and He has given the deacons to oversee the physical needs (with a lot of overlap in between). ...

2 Chronicles 34

Even if you skim the news these days it's easy to see that we live in a broken world. We can be tempted to look at our world, lament how bad things have become, and become discouraged, even apathetic. How can I as a Christian live within these times? How can I possibly influence our culture? We're tempted to think that things are worse now than they've ever been but when...

Titus 3;12-15

After 6 months of study, this week we are coming to our final sermon in the Book of Titus. We have learned a lot of things in this wonderful book. It has been a tremendous study and richly rewarding. Just to mention a few of the lessons we have learned: We have learned that the church is to be led by elders. Titus 1:5 says, "For this reason I left you in Crete, that you wo...

In his Commentary on the Book of Titus, John Calvin writes that: Every person who, by his overweening pride, breaks up the unity of the church, is pronounced by Paul to be a "heretic." . . . In a word, heresy . . . and the unity of the Church are things totally opposite to each other. Since the unity of the Church is dear to God, it ought to be held by us in the highes...

A Sunday School teacher once asked her class if they knew the difference between kindness and lovingkindness. One little girl said she knew the difference. She said that kindness is when you ask your mother for some toast and she gives it to you, but lovingkindness is when you ask your mother for some toast and she gives it to you with butter and jam on it. It is when she ...

In the Middle Ages, they were persecuted by the false church and they suffered injustices like the Spanish Inquisition. And, in our time, our views are largely marginalized and ignored as new laws are passed that support things like sa...

In a 1989 edition of Tabletalk Magazine, R. C. Sproul wrote that: Perhaps the most difficult task for us to perform is to rely on God's grace and God's grace alone for our salvation. It is difficult for our pride to rest on grace. Grace is for other people for beggars. We don't want to live by a heavenly welfare system. We want to earn our own way and atone for our own...

A group of scholars in England was once discussing what made Christianity unique among the religions of the world. One said it was the Trinity. Another said it was the Deity of Christ. Still another said it was the Bible and all that it contains. After the discussion had gone on for some time and they had not come to a definite conclusion, C. S. Lewis spoke up and said, "T...
