Sunday Morning Sermon for 4/22/12

It has been a great week in the Lord here at FBC Langdon.  We had a good time meeting together on Saturday to talk about the direction of our ministry as we move toward starting intentional small group discipleship in our church.  Sunday was a lot of fun as well.  One of our youth shared a song with us (which I unfortunately can’t put on here), but it was a blessing.  The message is about our mission from God, to make disciples.  I know we talk about it a lot, but that is only because it is the one main task that Jesus left for us to do.  May you be richly blessed through God’s Word and may you grow as a disciple of Jesus.

A Mission from God

2 Corinthians 5:11-6:11

  1. Controlled by love – 2 Corinthians 5:11-15

Getting Understanding

7 The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom.
Though it cost all you have, get understanding.  – Proverbs 4:7

I have a funny post queued up for later in the day, but I wanted to get this up first.  I have been doing several messages in the last few months playing off of this realization that we frequently misunderstand or make up meanings for obscure or difficult things in Scripture.  It is based on something I heard from First Fruits of Zion a year or two ago.  I found a couple of video clips on youtube that give a fuller explanation of this concept that I highly recommend.  It will take about 15 minutes of your time to watch these two clips back to back.  It is time well spent.

I know the end of the second clip includes a promo for some of their study material, but I can say this. Their study material is some of the most in-depth and thorough stuff I have ever seen.  When I got my first copy of Torah Club Volume 4 several years ago, I went through it with a fine tooth comb to look for areas of questionable scholarship or theological issues.  These guys do a great job of providing information as well as the sources that go into their materials and conclusions.  I highly recommend their work to anyone I talk to these days and I always enjoy checking out their new materials.  I currently have a small wishlist going for stuff I haven’t yet managed to purchase.

Here is one last video that talks about some of the deeper Hebraic concepts in the Gospels.  Enjoy.
