S7E08: A Cloud of Witnesses

Who is it that God put in your life to help you come to faith? Who is it that helped you to mature in your faith? We are not born Christians, we grow into faith in Christ, and it is only through people faithfully sharing their faith with us that we come to faith ourselves. In this message I run down my own "Hall of Faith" and reflect back on how so many people helped to build my foundation in faith. And I ask us to consider this: if the early Christians did not share their faith, if they didn't "Go, make disciples" (Matt. 28:19), then the church would not exist today. But we who are followers of Christ are directly linked in an unbroken line through generations of faith-sharing. So, who is it who shared their faith with you? And with whom will you share your faith? In whose cloud of witnesses has God placed you?

S7E07: Praise God (Practical Wisdom from Jude pt. 9)

S7E07: Praise God (Practical Wisdom from Jude pt. 9)

In this final message on the Epistle of Jude, we look at Jude's closing words, both doxology (glory saying) and benediction (good saying), a beautifully composed sentence both glorifying God and encouraging the believers in their mission to seek and to save the lost. In these final verses we see how Jude exemplifies for us all a need to praise God in all that we do and say, and provides for us a pattern for such praise and worship.
