Sermon Recap | The Miracle of Generosity

In this week's sermon, we looked at how the church in Macedonia experienced God's grace and generosity amidst their trials and afflictions. As Jeff unpacked this text, we saw three aspects of gospel generosity. First, we saw the source of generosity as it comes from grace, which Paul described as undeserved favor and divine enablement. Second, we saw three marks of generos...

Sermon Recap: "A Heart for the Harvest"

In Matthew 9:35-10:4, Jesus sees the needs of the crowd as they were unable to free themselves. Seeing them as sheep without a shepherd, Jesus was deeply moved by a warm, compassionate response to their need (and ours). Jesus' compassion is the supreme motivation for our mission. The first means of accomplishing that mission is to urgently pray to the Lord of the harvest f...

Sermon Quotes: "A Heart for the Harvest"

"His response is described by the strongly emotional Greek verb splanchnizomai, which speaks of a warm, compassionate response to need. No single English term does justice to it: compassion, pity, sympathy, and fellow-feeling all convey part of it, but 'his heart went out' perhaps represents more fully the emotional force of the underlying metaphor of a 'gut response'It is...

Sermon Quotes: "Idols and Altars"

"'Dressed stones' were used by the people of Canaan to construct their altars, because they were building materials of the highest quality from which all the roughness had been chiseled away. An altar made from such costly and aesthetically pleasing stone would be a tribute to human craftsmanship, but it would be defiled from the Lord's point of view because it distracted ...

Sermon Recap: "A Fear To Be Desired"

9:15FBIMG

"Now when all the people saw the thunder and the flashes of lightning and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking, the people were afraid and trembled, and they stood far off and said to Moses, 'You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us, lest we die.'

Sermon Quotes: "A Fear To Be Desired"

"Human language is necessarily imperfect. Since man's fall, and especially since the confusion of tongues at Babel, there has not only been a difference in speech between one nation and another, but also between one individual and another. Probably, we do not all mean exactly the same thing by any one word that we use; there is just a shade of difference between your meani...

"'Thou shalt not covet' is the inspired commandment which shows the man who thinks himself to be moral that he really needs a Savior. The average such 'moral' man, who has lived comparing himself to other men and comparing himself to a rather easy list of rules, can feel, like Paul that he is getting along all right. But suddenly, when he is confronted with the inward comm...
