Giving Thanks to Our King

  • November 20, 2016 | Brian Pinner

The gospel is boldly advancing under the contested reign and inevitable victory of Jesus the king. This side of Jesus’ death and resurrection, all of God’s sovereignty is mediated exclusively through King Jesus… . Christ “must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet” ([I Cor.] 15:25). That presupposes the reign is still contested, and still advances. This is of a piece with Jesus’ claim, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt 16:18). But one day, the final enemy, death itself, will die, and Jesus’ mediatorial kingship will end. God will be all in all.

Living and Giving Generously

  • November 13, 2016 | Brad Baugham | 3 John

So how do you know where and what you worship? It’s easy. You simply follow the trail of your time, your affection, your energy, your money, and your allegiance. At the end of that trail you’ll find a throne; and whatever, or whomever, is on that throne is what’s of highest value to you. On that throne is what you worship. Sure, not too many of us walk around saying, “I worship my stuff. I worship my job. I worship this pleasure. I worship her. I worship my body. I worship me!” But the trail never lies.

The God of Truth and Love

  • November 6, 2016 | Brad Baugham | 2 John

The greatest evidence that heaven has invaded our sphere, that the Spirit has been poured out upon us, that we are citizens of a kingdom not yet consummated, is Christian love.

Love One Another

  • October 16, 2016 | Brad Baugham | John 13:34

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.

Showing Hospitality to One Another

  • October 9, 2016 | Brad Baugham | 1 Peter 4:9

The sure provisions of my God Attend me all my days;
O may Thy house be my abode, And all my work be praise.
There would I find a settled rest, While others go and come;
No more a stranger, nor a guest, But like a child at home.

— Isaac Watts

The God Who Forgives

  • October 2, 2016 | Brad Baugham | Colossians 3

The first thing that you have to do if you’re going to forgive that person is to receive the grace of God. Until you receive grace from God and His forgiveness of you, you will not be in a position to forgive somebody else.

— Elisabeth Elliot

Exhorting One Another Everyday

  • September 18, 2016 | Brad Baugham | Hebrews 3

You can trust us to stick to you, through thick and thin—to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secret of yours—closer than you keep it yourself. But you cannot trust us to let you face travel alone and go off without a word. We are your friends, Frodo.
