Further Failure, Reform and a Future Redeemer

  • August 14, 2011 | Brad Baugham | Nehemiah 13

I have yet to come across a student who struggled with, or even abandoned, the faith, who did not, at some early point in their struggle, abandon the mundane routines of the Christian life: regular attendance at the preaching of the word, prayer, etc. etc. Boring they may be, but they are God’s means of preventing amnesia; and we forget them at our peril. —Carl Trueman


Joy, Joy, Joy

  • August 7, 2011 | Brad Baugham | Nehemiah 11-12

When we gather together as the people of God, remember that we are the redeemed of the Lord. Our characteristic note should therefore be one of exuberance and joy. Accept no substitutes, particularly the substitute of carnally generated joy. —Douglas Wilson


Guardian of the Good News

The church’s task is to teach and preach the Word of God. Whatever else it may properly do is subordinate and subsidiary to that task. —R. B. Kuiper


Walking Worthy of Mercy

Missions Commissioning Service

  • July 17, 2011 | Brad Baugham | Psalm 87

Love bade me welcome: yet my soul drew back,
Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-ey’d Love, observing me grow slack
From my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning,
If I lack’d any thing.

A guest, I answer’d, worthy to be here:
Love said, you shall be he.
I the unkind, ungrateful? Ah my dear,
I cannot look on thee.
Love took my hand, and smiling did reply,
Who made the eyes but I?

Truth Lord, but I have marr’d them: let my shame
Go where it doth deserve.
And know you not, says Love, who bore the blame?
My dear, then I will serve.
You must sit down, says Love, and taste my meat:
So I did sit and eat.
—George Herbert

God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance. —Romans 2:4


Christ, The Lord of The Feast!

  • July 3, 2011 | Brad Baugham | Nehemiah 8

Everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths. … And on that day there shall be inscribed on the bells of the horses, “Holy to the Lord.” And the pots in the house of the Lord shall be as the bowls before the altar. And every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holy to the Lord of hosts. —Zechariah 14:16, 20, 21a


God’s People Regathered and Reformed

  • June 26, 2011 | Brad Baugham | Nehemiah 7-8

The new life in Christ, just like all natural life, must be nourished and strengthened. This is possible only in communion with Christ in the Holy Spirit and through the word of Scripture. Enlightened by the Spirit, believers gain a new knowledge of faith. The gospel is the food of faith and must be known to be nourishment. Salvation that is not known and enjoyed is no salvation. God saves by causing himself to be known and enjoyed in Christ. —Herman Bavinc


Three Frightful Plots … Reversed

  • June 19, 2011 | Brad Baugham | Nehemiah 6

The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen. —2 Timothy 4:18


Let Justice Roll Down Like Waters

  • June 12, 2011 | Brad Baugham | Nehemiah 5

You were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another… . If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
—Galatians 5:13-15, 25-26
