Have you ever wondered what does it mean to be a man after God’s own heart? How can I please the Lord in the job, home, neighborhood, relationships and friendships that He has Sovereignly placed us? In other words, what are the marks of a man of God?

The apostle Paul answers those important questions for us and gives us practical guide posts for each of our lives to follow in living a life that bears the fruit of the gospel! Our text we will be looking at is 1 Timothy 6:3-20. Though none of us have arrived at this high standard, may we make it our prayerful goal every day to be His men! Amen?

Hope you can join us!

Sola Scriptura… A Weapon of Mass Instruction

Sola Scriptura… A Weapon of Mass Instruction

Our only rule of faith and practice is God’s Word. Its authority knows no equal. May this article encourage you as to its sufficiency and supremacy. (Psalm 19:7-9)

For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe” 1 Thess. 2:13

The most effective weapon we possess as Christians for the work of the ministry is not pragmatic methodology, our TV shows, book clubs, music concerts, radio programs, our celebrities, famous pastors, or even our social alliances with other cultural moral entities–as effective as some of those things may be. The most effective weapon that any church or Christian possesses is the Word of God and the life lived in obedience to its claims.

“The Christians Bill of Rights” (living godly in a pagan society)

“The Christians Bill of Rights” (living godly in a pagan society)

In Augustine’s brilliant tome, “The City of God”, he depicts members of two societies: The City of God and The City of Man. Both are bound by God’s sovereignty; both are under the authority of His Word, but the two cities posses very different realities.

The Gospel According to Jesus (what it is and what it’s not)

The Gospel According to Jesus (what it is and what it’s not)

The great divines of the 17th century stated what they were for and to clarify what they denied on certain theological issues. This is the spirit of this post for our church. Nothing more important than the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ! It was THE test for orthodoxy in Paul’s day and it is in ours as well! (Galatians 1:6-9) May this portion of a statement of faith encourage you in the truth and life-changing hope of the gospel of Jesus!
