Honoring Christ In The Psalms-Day 2

Our Jesus, experienced the full spectrum of human experience and emotion while on earth. If we are to truly become “Christ-like,” we too are going to have to be equipped for all that life may bring. I believe it is the Psalms that prepare us with such a “strength of soul.” Each day in this study, we will ask you to explore a particular genre of poetic writing in the Psalms. We will ask for you to fellowship with the Lord in prayer...

Honoring Christ in The Meal- Day 7

Meals as Mission In the first three centuries, largely up until the time that Constantine politicalized Christianity as the state religion, the whole of the Christian worship service (the gathering) was referred to as “the Lord’s Supper.” It wasn’t a wafer and a sip from a plastic throwaway cup that was in Paul’s mind in 1 Corinthians 10:17–34, when he spoke of the Supper. The context of Paul’s argument in 1 Corinthians clearly is...

Honoring Christ in The Meal- Day 6

Meals as Church Planting Movements In response to Peter’s Pentecost sermon, over 3,000 people were added to the church and immediately, we see the church begin to organize. Pay attention. Do they organize into buildings? Do they form doctrinal statements? Did they immediately raise money or start a campaign? Read the account in Acts: And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of...

Honoring Christ in The Meal- Day 5

Meals as the Visual Kingdom In Luke’s account of the Last Supper, he refers to two distinct cups that are used, a detail that is unique to him. We know that the tradition of the Jews was to take 4 cups at the Passover: one for blessing, one for explanation of meal’s meaning, one for the meal proper, and one for the conclusion. But why two cups here? Jesus stands before His disciples and paints a new kingdom inaugurated by a raised...

Honoring Christ in The Meal- Day 3

Blessing and Cursing In Luke 14:15–24 Jesus describes a banquet scene. In the parable, a man goes out and invites many guests to his feast, but they all decline the invitation, citing a variety of excuses, but the main reason being that they are too busy. When word of their declined RSVP reaches the man’s ears through his servant, he becomes angry. In response, he commissions his servant to go out and invite the poor, the crippled,...

Embodying Grace

  I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God; Wondrously show your steadfast love, O Savior of those who seek refuge from their adversaries at your right hand. As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness. Psalm 17:6a, 7 & 15 (ESV) When it comes to personal evangelism, feelings of obligation, guilt, and duty have never been effective motivators for me. On the...

Why building volunteers is so important

Why building volunteers is so important

One of my biggest beliefs for Worship Ministry in the local church is that we build up the members of our churches to do the work of the ministry. I truly believe that we are called, as members of the body of Christ to be doing the work were commissioned to do by Jesus. The great commission wasn’t directed at professional ministers. Jesus didn’t even pick trained ministers to do the work of building his Kingdom on the...

Get the Evangelism Monkey off the back of Worship

He’s a cute little guy. But he sure can cause a lot of problems. Don’t get me wrong. Evangelism is what we’re all about. YES, we want to be relevant. I agree completely! But….(and you knew it was coming)…..evangelism cannot ride on the back of worship. We have to stop trying to make worship – evangelism. Worship is worship, evangelism is evangelism. I agree that a worshiping church is attractive to...
