Preparing for Worship: November 2, 2014

Our sermon text for this Sunday is from 1 Corinthians 12:13 and other selected passages: “For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.” In the AM service, the focus will be on the unity of the church that finds its reality in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, which correlates with what we have been studying in Ephesians 2:11-22.

For the PM service, Pastor Richard will trace this doctrine through the NT, examining the OT passages that point to this NT reality, and answer contemporary Charismatic theology that misunderstands the doctrine.

Preparing for Worship: October 26, 2014

Absolute power and amazing grace exist in the same God; that is, in the same God we see absolute holiness, a perfect hatred of evil, an immovable commitment to justice on the one hand, while also compassionate love, the willingness to forgive, and the desire to deliver on the other. And God raises up and sends messengers to announce that message to a people on the brink of disaster. His willingness to judge and His willingness to relent are announced through the same vessel.

This Sunday Pastor Caldwell is preaching a two part sermon from Jeremiah 18:1-23. In light of our God’s character, the text teachers us to learn about gracious opportunities and how they must not be wasted. The first sermon will cover verses 1-11: “Lessons from a Potter”

  1. What God wanted Jeremiah to See (vs.1-4)
  2. What God wanted Jeremiah to Understand (vs.5-10)
  3. What God wanted Jeremiah to Proclaim (vs.11)

He is currently the T. Rupert and Lucille Coleman Professor of Christian Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he has taught since 1998. Dr. Ware has written numerous journal articles, book chapters, and book reviews and, along with Thomas Schreiner, has co-edited Still Sovereign.

In Ephesians 2, the apostle Paul explains the doctrine of union with Christ. In Jesus, “you who once were far off [that is, Gentiles] have been brought near by the blood of Christ” (Eph 2:13). But what does it mean to be united with Christ when we were formerly estranged from him? Pastor Caldwell’s sermon this Sunday morning will address this very question. Here is his outline in brief: 

Ephesians 2:11-22, “One New Man”

  1. THIS IS A PASSAGE ABOUT THANKSGIVING
  2. THIS IS A PASSAGE ABOUT HUMILITY
  3. THIS IS A PASSAGE ABOUT GOD’S SAVING PLAN AND PURPOSE
  4. THIS IS A PASSAGE ABOUT UNITY AND IDENTITY IN CHRIST

Pastor Caldwell’s sermon this Sunday morning will begin in Luke 6:35, and is entitled “A Deadly Disease.” In that text, Christ’s description of humanity as “the ungrateful and the evil” shows that ungratefulness is not only a signature sin of unbelievers, but a deadly threat to the believing community. This type of warning is was also part of Israel’s history. Even as God was about to establish them in their land, He warned that the dangers of ungratefulness would threaten their future. (Deut. 4:9-10, 6:10-12, 8:1-20; Joshua 24:1-15, etc.):

I. Ungratefulness and the fallen human race

II. Ungratefulness and the community of God’s people

III. Ungratefulness and its underlying cause

IV. Ungratefulness and God’s gracious remedy

This week we will have a guest preacher for the AM service, Dr. Jerry Wragg of The Expositors Seminary. Please be in prayer about this important visit as TES is looking at Founders as a potential spot for a seminary extension campus. 

In the PM service, Pastor Caldwell will address us from an Old Testament text, and I’m eager to hear what the Lord has in store for us:

Sunday PM: “Holy Affections” (Ezra 8:21-23)

  1. Holy Shame 
  2. Holy jealously 
  3. Holy humility 
  4. Holy trust

The text for this week’s sermon comes from Ephesians 2:8-9, “Preaching the Gospel to Christians.” It is good to be reminded that this tremendous explanation of how God saves sinners (often used in evangelistic encounters) is addressed to believers. How did God save us and why do we need to be reminded?

Why preach the gospel to Christians?

  1. The gospel will forever be under attack
  2. The church is called to contend for the gospel
  3. The church lives out of the gospel

The lesson from Ephesians 2:

  1. The Certainty of salvation (v.8)
  2. The Explanation for salvation (v.8)
  3. The Communication of salvation (v.8)
  4. The Contrast of salvation (v.8-9a)
  5. The Celebration of salvation (v.9b)

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here:

  1. Come Thou Almighty King (iTunes)
  2. Your Love, Oh Lord (iTunes)
  3. How Deep the Father’s Love for Us (iTunes)
  4. Our Father (iTunes)
  5. In the Name of God (iTunes)

Pastor Caldwell’s text this week continues from Romans 12. This is part 7 of “The Goal of Our Ministry” series and will address verses 17-21. In the main, the text deals with how the believer meets the hostility of an unbelieving world with the love of Jesus Christ; that is, they are about the believer’s relationship to unbelievers. Here is the outline: 

Sunday AM: “The Goal of Our Ministry, pt. 7” (Romans 12:17-21)

  1. LOVE RETURNS GOOD FOR EVIL (v.17)
  2. LOVE PURSUES PEACE WITH ALL PEOPLE (v.18)
  3. LOVE TRUSTS GOD WITH JUDGMENT (vs.19-21)

Songs we will sing this week include the following, provided in a playlist here. You can also purchase this music in iTunes via the links below:

The text for this Sunday will be Romans 12:13 for the AM service: “Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.” What exactly are the “needs of the saints” and to what extent should believers “contribute” to those needs? The needs of the saints likely include financial assistance. Paul elsewhere notes that priority should be given to the believing community (Gal 6:10), just as one should help family members before they give to others (1 Tim 5:4, 8). These are practical marks of the Christian church, as is seeking to show hospitality to others. Tom Schreiner points out that the Greek participle here, “to seek” or “to pursue” indicates taking the initiative in providing hospitality. 

Pastor Caldwell’s sermon outlines for both services on Sunday are below:

Sunday AM: Romans 12:13—Love is Generous – Love Gives

I. THE GENEROUS NATURE OF LOVE IN ALL OF SCRIPTURE

II. THE GENEROUS EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE (V.13)

     A. THE PARTNERSHIP OF GIVING (13a)
     B. THE PURSUIT OF LOVING STRANGERS (13b)


Sunday PM: Romans 12:14-16—Real love is proven in the crucible of relationships

I. LOVE ABSORBS WRONG (v.14)

II. LOVE IDENTIFIES WITH OTHERS (v.15)

III. LOVE IS HUMBLE (v.16)
