Temple Baptist Church - 6-23-2019Luke 10:38-42Introduction: John 15:7-9 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. (8) Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. (9) As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. A. I have been preaching for a couple of weeks on the subject of “Abiding In Christ.” Being saved and abiding in Christ are two separate things.1. Salvation is in unconditional covenant where a person comes to Christ in repentance and faith then is the recipient of Eternal Life!2. Abiding in Christ is a conditional covenant whereby a saved man or woman remains constant in Christ. “For to me to live is Christ!” “When Christ, who is our life, shall appear.” “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”B. The home of Lazarus, Martha, and Mary. This home and family were very special to our Lord. Not that the Lord loves some more than others, but some love the Lord more than others. Our Lord frequented this home.C. What a testimony the Lord's friend, Lazarus, had. Many Jews came to see the one whom Jesus raised from the dead in in John, chapter 12, the religious crowd conspired to put Lazarus to death because many believed on Christ because of him.D. In our text, we find our Lord in their home. 1. TWO VERY IMPORTANT things are mentioned here, Serving andSitting, Cumbered and Contentment. These two conditions are equally important and should go hand-in-hand!2. Martha is cumbered in her serving while Mary is content in her sitting! Thus, we find the children of God in our day.E. Are we cumbered in our serving or content in our sitting?F. In verse 38, Martha “received him into her house.” Martha was a Good woman! Martha was a Godly woman! Martha Loved the Lord! As with Peter, we often tend to look at Martha in a wrong way or in a bad light. She made sure that the Lord had every comfort when He came into her home. She made sure that His every need was met when He came for a visit. She loved her Lord! 1. But Martha was “cumbered ABOUT much serving.” Notice with me the wording: “Cumbered ABOUT much serving,” not “Cumbered WITHmuch serving!”2. I imagine that she was tired and more than a little frustrated. Here, she was HAVING TO DO all the work while Mary sat in the living room and enjoyed listening to the Lord talk. Ladies, does that remind you of how it is when company comes, you are left alone in the kitchen to both cook and clean while the other ladies sit and talk?G. Cumbered – a s0-called archaic (old, outdated) word for burdened, hindered, troubled. I hate it when people say the Word of God is outdated! “Cumbered with heavy clothing.” So many are trying to serve Christ but find service a burden instead of a blessing. H. Too many children of God are spending their time in service FOR Christ without spending time WITH Christ!I. Mary was a Good woman! Mary was a Godly woman! Mary Loved the Lord! Mary was content in sitting at the Lord's feet.J. I want to look at the little story of Martha and Mary for a few minutes this morning and give us a biblical definition of what it is to abide in His presence. Luke 10:38-42**1. We See That Mary Longed To Be With Christ.a. Martha was Cumbered – vs. 40 In the preceding verse, we see that Martha was glad to see Jesus Christ and received Him willingly. He was more than welcome in her home. He was wanted! 1) I know that Martha had work to do so I am not “knocking” her labor. Without people who are willing to labor, nothing would ever get done but there is a time to labor for Christ and a time to rest with Christ!2) The word “cumbered” is an interesting word. It means to be drawn around, to be driven about mentally, to be distracted, to be over-occupied or too busy about a thing.3) The only other use of the word is cumbereth:Luke 13:7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? (Cumbereth – to render the ground useless!)b. Mary was Contented with Communing – vs. 39 While Martha wanted Him in her home, Mary wanted to be with Him!Luke 8:35 Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed,sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.Proverbs 8:34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.2. We See That Mary Loved Christ.a. Martha was Working – vs. 40 “serve alone” I have no problem understanding that Martha also love the Lord very much. This is shown forth in other portions of scripture where Christ Jesus spent much time in their home. Martha approached our Lord in John 11, after the death of Lazarus, and confessed that if He had been there, her brother would not have died.b. Mary was Worshipping – vs. 39 “sat at Jesus' feet” Here, we find that place of obeisance and humility. Servants sat at the feet of their masters showing both obedience and affection. Mary Magdalene anointed the feet of Jesus.Luke 7:44-45 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wipedthem with the hairs of her head. 45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.John 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. (Tell me that you love me, Peter! Tell me that you love me more than anything else in the world, Peter!!)3. We See That Mary Listened To Christ – vs. 39a. Martha was Burdened – vs. 41 “careful and troubled about many things” Serving our Lord had lost its blessing and became a burden to Martha. She was not serving because she wanted to serve. She was serving because, as the woman of the house, she had to serve. How many times has the work of the Lord become a burden to God's people? We do what we are expected to do just because we are expected to do so! The service of the “bond slave” becomes a thing of the past as we labor, seemingly unrewarded, in these last days.b. Mary was Blessed – vs. 42 “good part, which shall not be taken away” I also have no doubt that Mary spent many hours laboring beside of Martha. Her sitting at the feet of our Lord had nothing to do with laziness. It had to do with her fervent desire to both be with Him and hear His gracious words.Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.Job 23:12 Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessaryfood.4. We See That Mary Lingered With Christ – vs. 40a. Martha was Absent – vs. 40 “to serve alone” The Master hascome and is now speaking while Martha remains cumbered and worried in the kitchen! Could not He who fed the thousands with just 5 loaves and 2 fishes met their physical needs. Would it have be such a great thing if then even missed the evening meal that day. When the Lord spoke, Martha was AWOL! She was missing.b. Mary was abiding – vs. 40 “my sister hath left me” Mary sought that “good part, which shall not be taken away from her!” Time spent with Christ is not time wasted for Christ! Yes, we can be doing a multitude of other things that are both needed and profitable but that time spend with Him is sublime!Psalms 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence isfulness of joy; at thy right hand [there are] pleasures for evermore.Psalms 95:2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.Psalms 100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.Psalms 140:13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.Conclusion: There is a song that I love to hear, especially the chorus that goes very well with this message. It is titled “When I'm With Him” and the chorus goes like this:When I'm with Him;When I'm with Him;The fairest pleasures of the world grow dim;And in him heart, I feel the thrill of glory;When I'm with Him, when I'm with Him.
Temple Baptist Church - 5-29-2019Hebrews 9:11-14Introduction:A. A Better Covenant; A Better Tabernacle; A Better High Priest; and a Better Blood! This is what chapter 9 is all about! For thousands of years, an earthly high priest slew an earthly animal, took earthly blood and offered it upon the Mercy Seat for an atonement for sin.B. As I preach this evening, I just want you to know that the BLOOD IS STILL THERE! The Blood of Jesus Christ; the Blood of God! Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world! This is what Hebrews, chapter 9 is all about!C. It is the Blood of Christ that redeems us; it is the Blood of Christ that justifies us; it is the Blood of Christ that sanctifies us; it is the Blood of Christ that cleanses our heart, soul, and conscience; it is the Blood of Christ gives us peace; it is the Blood of Christ that allows us to have fellowship with our heavenly Father! D. Hebrews 9:11-26. Concerning the shedding of blood for both atonement and salvation, God established two covenants. Hebrews 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to theblood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. (This verse contrasts the “new covenant of propitiation” with “that of Abel” or the “old covenant of atonement.” The blood of the first testament was of animal sacrifices which brought atonement or a covering of sin until the blood of the new covenant, which was the blood of Christ, brought about the remission of sin!)E. I want to quote J. P. Morgan, a noted financier and multi-millionaire of an earlier American generation. Before his death, he composed a will consisting of 37 articles and 10,000 words. While Mr. Morgan had been involved in transactions involving millions of dollars during his illustrious business career, he left no doubt as to what was the greatest transaction he had ever made. In his will he wrote: "I commit my soul in the hands of my Savior, full of confidence that having redeemed me and washed me with His most precious blood, He will present me faultless before the throne of my Heavenly Father. I entreat my children to maintain and defend at all hazards and at any cost of personal sacrifice, the blessed doctrine of complete atonement through the blood of Christ with regard to the believer's salvation."F. J. P. Morgan recognized the priceless value of the atoning sacrifice of Christ's blood that was shed in His death on the cross.The Blood of Christ1. It is Personal Blood. It is the blood of God, though we do not fully understand this, which was different from our blood. I can no more explain this statement than I can the conception and birth of Christ. I just believe what the Bible says! Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God,which he hath purchased with his own blood. (Jesus Christ's conception, birth, body, life, death, resurrection, and blood were different from ours.) 2. It is Pure Blood. The blood of Christ was not subject to Adamic sin! The Bible declares that Christ's blood was not corruptible! Blood corrupts with it dies. The blood of Christ was incorruptible and could not die. The blood of Christ is as much alive today as it was the day on which it was shed.1 Peter 1:18-19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; (19) But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: (Two things in these verses stick out to me: a) It is not corruptible in nature, it is incorruptible b) It is precious in the sight of God.)1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (According to the Bible, that same blood that Christ shed is still alive and available for the cleansing of the sinful. That means it remains, not perished.)3. It is Precious Blood. I hear a lot of so-called men of God say that this blood was not all gathered and applied to the Mercy Seat in Heaven. 1 Peter 2:6-7 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious (precious to God): and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. (7) Unto you therefore which believe he is precious (precious to the child of God): but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, (To deny the precious blood of Christ tells us something about the spiritual nature of the one who denies it!)4. It is Presented Blood. The blood of Christ did not run into the ground and perish but was purposefully placed on the mercy seat in heaven but our High Priest. I believe that the Bible teaches two ascensions.John 20:14-17 And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. (15) Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. (16) Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. (17) Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. (Mary was not allowed to touch Him because the resurrected Lord was now our purified High Priest.)Matthew 28:6-9 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. (7) And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. (8) And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. (9) And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail.And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. (Now they could touch the Lord. Something had changed from the account given in John.)Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. (Again, in Luke, the Lord gave permission for the disciples to “handle” Him.)Hebrews 9:11-12 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; (12) Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. (As the blood of bulls and goats were applied to the mercy seat under the old covenant, the blood of Christ was applied to the mercy seat in heaven under the new covenant.)5. It is Powerful Blood. The blood of Christ can make the vilest sinner clean! His blood can purge every sin ever committed and save every sinner who will accept it.Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.6. It is Permanent Eternal Blood. Animal blood had to be applied often but the blood of Christ only once forever. If it is incorruptible and precious (and it is), then it must be therefore eternal (which it is). Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.7. It is Propitiatory Saving Blood. Our salvation is not through the death of Christ but through the blood of Christ! Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; (It is of no wonder that the blood of Christ is under the same attack as the Word of God. Salvation comes through faith hearing the Word of God and personal application of the blood of God. There can be salvation without either!)8. It is Penalizing Blood! To reject the propitiation of Christ is to damn oneself and possibly your children. Matthew 27:24-25 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but thatrather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. (25) Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. (Pilate washed his hands of Christ and placed the decision to crucify our Lord into the hands of the people He came to save. From the hands of one to the heads of others. That precious blood has been on the heads of their children for 2,000 years.)
Temple Baptist Church - 5-12-2019Romans 15:8-13; Romans 11:1-26Introduction: A. Verse 8 – Here we find God's promises to Israel, the Jewish people. Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.B. Jesus Christ was Israel's long-awaited Messiah, the Seed of the Woman, Jehovah God in the flesh. He came in fulfillment of God's promises made by the Prophets.C. Jesus Christ fulfilled every aspect of both the Law and the Prophets. But, the Jews stumbled because the expected a King that would deliver them from the power of Rome instead of a Sacrifice that would die for their sin.D. Though the Nation of Israel rejected Christ (John 1:11), individuals believed on Him and were gloriously saved.E. Through Israel's rejection and blindness, the gospel came to the Gentiles. Israel's blindness became the Gentile's blessing!1. Vs. 9 – We Gentiles Should Glorify Him For His Mercy. Romans 15:9 And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.Romans 9:25-26 As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God.Matthew 15:22-28 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.2. Vs. 10 – We Gentiles Should Rejoice In His Great Salvation. Romans 15:10 And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people.Colossians 3:9-11 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; (10) And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: (11) Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.3. Vs. 11 – We Gentiles Should Praise Him For His Loving Kindness. (Laud – to honor, to promise, to vow) Romans 15:11 And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people.Psalms 117:1-2 O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. (2) For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.4. Vs. 12 – We Gentiles Should Obey His Lordship. Romans 15:12 And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.Jeremiah 16:19-21 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. (20) Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods? (21) Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is The LORD.5. Vs. 13 – We Gentiles Should Trust Him (brings joy and peace) Romans 15:19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, (17) Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
A historian shows how the pursuit of God and “black gold” went hand in hand—and how it changed the shape of American Christianity.Editor’s note: CT’s June cover story considers the use and abuse of oil from a Christian lens.In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus frames a stark choice between God and money, declaring, “You cannot serve both” (Matt. 6:24). His warning has not exactly fallen on deaf ears in the modern United States, but it hasn’t kept many awake at night either. American believers have for generations possessed a buoyant confidence—one might call it a faith—in their ability to make money without being mastered by it. The righteous can pursue riches, so long as their hearts are in the right place.Such bits of conventional wisdom have a history. In recent years, scholars have delved deeper than ever before into the longstanding synergies between American Christianity and American capitalism. Their efforts have yielded a wealth of excellent studies focused on everything from Wal-Mart to Chick-Fil-A, from spiritual celebrity to Christian nationalism, and from the origins of fundamentalism to the rise of prosperity megachurches.Darren Dochuk’s landmark book, Anointed with Oil: How Christianity and Crude Made Modern America, at once builds on this important body of work and represents its most stunning achievement. Authors rarely deliver so fully on their titles. Through the stories of believers hot in pursuit of both God and “black gold,” Dochuk indeed opens a breathtaking new window onto the making of the modern nation.Sparring Spirits of CapitalismOil is not incidental to Dochuk’s narrative. Its distinctive qualities, ranging from its hiddenness and explosiveness to its extraordinary value, make it an essential player. Dochuk underscores this point from the outset, characterizing ...Continue reading...
On the first day of NRLC 2019, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMasters told a wildly enthusiastic luncheon gathering that “I believe time and history is on our side.” A very recent Gallup poll lends weight to the governor's declaration. Never mind the misleading headline– “Majority in U.S. Still Want Abortion Legal, With Limits”–written by Lydia […]
