Listen to this Worship Music

Posted on Nov. 27, 2009

Here is a wonderful resource for music and the philosophy of worship -Churchworksmedia.com

I listened to two wonderful songs, “I Love the Church,” and “His Robes for Mine.”

They say that God-glorifying worship music should be:

1. Intentionally Scriptural
2. Intentionally God-Glorifying
3. Intentionally Christ-Centered
4. Intentionally Congregational
5. Intentionally Fervent
6. Intentionally Distinct

Read their explanations of these headings and be blessed.

Jeff Pollard on the SOS—Exalting Jesus Christ and His Word

Posted on Nov. 25, 2009

Jeff Pollard on the SOS

Listed below are titles and descriptions of Jeff Pollard’s conference messages:

The Sufficiency of Scripture and Women’s Ministries Part 1: Teachers of Good Things

Women’s ministries are popular, yet controversial in our day, partly because the term itself is vague, ambiguous, and does not appear in Scripture. If one asks, “Why are women teaching in the church, Sunday School, seminaries, and numerous other venues?” the answer is often, “Titus 2 says that women should teach women.” But what does Titus 2 teach? God’s infallible and sufficient Word says that older women must be “teachers of good things.” What does God want them to teach?

The Sufficiency of Scripture and Women’s Ministries Part 2: Keepers at Home

The inspired, infallible, and sufficient Word of God says that older women should be “teachers of good things.” Among the seven good things that the Apostle Paul says that older women should teach young women is to be “keepers at home.” What did the Apostle mean by this? How should we apply it today? The answers are crucial for building healthy churches.

Burden of Proof for Age Segregation

Posted on Nov. 25, 2009

It is easy to prove the pattern of age integrated discipleship from Scripture. The entire fabric of scripture is woven with age integrated gatherings of God’s people. But it is almost impossible to prove the principle of age segregation. I have yet to hear a biblical case for age segregation. Why? Because it does not exist in Scripture. Therefore, the burden of proof for age segregation rests upon those who support it.

Elder Installation at Geneva Lakes Christian Church

Posted on Nov. 23, 2009

Yesterday I had the privilege of traveling to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, to participate in an elder installation service for the appointment of three elders, Gerald Hartlaub, David Layhew and Gary Powers.  I preached from Acts 20 with a focus on verse 8, “Keep watch over yourselves and the flock, shepherd the church of God, which He purchased by His own blood”, Paul’s words to the elders of the church in Ephesus on the beach at Miletus,   I encouraged the elders to follow Paul’s pattern in Acts 20, and exhorted the congregation to be a humble and dutiful church that listens intently to the Word of the Lord from these men, and gathers when the elders call for it. I made clear to the congregation that these new elders cannot shepherd them if they don’t come to the gatherings, and recommended that they build their life schedules around the church calendar, instead of just trying to fit them in when it was convenient. Pray for these new elders that they would be a fulfillment of Jeremiah 3:15, “And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Young Men Study The Reformed Pastor

Posted on Nov. 21, 2009

The NCFIC interns and some of the young men from Hope Baptist, accompanied me to a pastor’s conference this weekend, titled “The Reformed Pastor.” Held at Springs of Life Bible Church, the conference featured speakers, Andy Davis, Sam Waldron, and Nathan Finn at Grace Reformed Baptist Church in Durham. It was hosted by pastor Stan Geyer and produced by the people of the church, who furnished facilities and wonderful meals for us. The conference included biographies of Richard Baxter, Jonathan Edwards, Andrew Fuller, and Charles Spurgeon. It provided a wonderful view of pastoral leadership from the seventeenth century to the nineteenth century. The thematic thread in my mind was the defense of the gospel through the diversity of pastoral gifts and roles. Baxter was the quintessential pastor. Edwards: Scholar and evangelist. Fuller: Defending biblical evangelism and arguing against hyper-Calvinism and decisional regeneration. Spurgeon: pastor evangelist. I wanted to bring these young men with me to this pastor’s conference because I wanted them to soak for a while in the biographies of men who were faithful to Christ early in life, and who redeemed the time in the days of their youth. I wanted them to see and understand a vision for godly pastoral leadership in the church….

“Jesus is not only light but also food”

Posted on Nov. 21, 2009

When speaking of the beauty of the name of Jesus, Calvin quotes a statement from Bernard, “The name of Jesus is not only light but also food; it is also oil, without which all food of the soul is dry; it is salt, without whose seasoning whatever I set before us is insipid; finally, it is honey in the mouth, melody in the ear, rejoicing in the heart, and at the same time medicine. Every discourse in which his name is not spoken is without savor.”—Institutes of the Christian Religion, Book 2, Chapter 16, Section 1.
