Whatever It Takes – The Gospel for the Nations

Posted on

Version 2
Charlotte Chapel, Rose Street, Edinburgh, Scotland

As a part of a missions weekend in Edinburgh, Scotland, the question was asked, “What will it take for the church to embrace God’s call to go to the nations with the gospel?”  A couple of weeks ago, I posted the Sunday evening message from Charlotte Chapel’s missions conference.  This post follows that up with the video for the Sunday morning message from that weekend.

I do hope you will be challenged to consider our response to His commission to take the gospel to the neighborhoods and the nations!

Cathy and I love the special people of Edinburgh in general and Charlotte Chapel in particular!

“Lessons on Lordship” – My Final Sermon Series

Posted on

Since Providence started with a series of messages on the person and work of Jesus Christ, I will conclude my ministry here with three messages on the same theme that has been a constant focus over thirty-seven years.

Sermon Series: November 29, December 6 and December 13

November 29, 2015
“Lessons from the Vine: Abide in Christ”
John 15:1-7; Isaiah 11:1-2

December 6, 2015
“Lessons from the Lamb: Appeal to Christ”
John 1:29, 26; Isaiah 53:6-7

December 13, 2015
“Lessons from Living Waters: Abound in Christ”
John 4:7-15; Isaiah 44:3-5; 55:1

With these three sermons, I will bring a close to over 37 years of preaching at Providence!  Hard to imagine!  I trust that the Lord will continue to provide places for me to preach and teach His Word for many, many years to come.  But the last chapters are now being written for my time at Providence.

Great days are ahead for Providence with Brian Frost as new senior pastor and I am excited to continue to learn from the preaching of this great and godly man!  Thanks for praying!  Keep it up!

 

Treasuring Christ and Prevailing Prayer: Missions Conference at Charlotte Chapel, Edinburgh, Scotland

Liam Garvie leads afternoon workshop

The weekend of October 24-25, 2015, Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh held their annual missions conference.  Cathy and I had the honor of participating and spending several days with the amazing folks of that extraordinary congregation.  Since its founding in 1808, missions has been a pivotal part of their heritage.  Here is one of the four messages I got to preach that weekend, a time and a place and a people I will never forget.  Thanks to new friends, Liam Garvie and Paul Rees, pastors at Charlotte Chapel, for making us so welcome and trusting me with the pulpit for those two days!

Hope you are encouraged by this message and that you will pray for the missions expansion of Charlotte Chapel to continue for another two hundred years if Christ delays His return!  So grateful for the rich friendships we made and for the responsiveness of the people to the beauty of Christ and His call to take His good news to the nations!_DSC2631
