Saturday Review 9 – Some Pastors and Teachers; Leaving Neverland; The Briefing; The Dark Side of the Moon; Ting Saboteur

Books – Some Pastors and Teachers – Sinclair Ferguson – 8/10 This is a long and wonderful book from my colleague, Sinclair.  It is really a collection of essays on subjects which are particularly relevant to those of us who are pastors.  In fact I would regard it as essential for any minister to have.  If yours doesn’t then buy it for him.   Sinclair begins … Continue reading Saturday Review 9 – Some Pastors and Teachers; Leaving Neverland; The Briefing; The Dark Side of the Moon; Ting Saboteur

Romans 9?  Just before Christmas?  You have to be kidding!  But that is where we were at and that is where we continued.  I had hoped to do the whole chapter in one sermon but the more I looked at it, the more I realised that there was a lot there for us all to wrestle with and to help us.  So we only did … Continue reading Romans 9 – Does God Keep His Promises?

The Greatest Doctrine (Romans 8:28); Proverbs 1 and “It is Well With My Soul”

Martyn Lloyd-Jones says that Romans 8:32 contains the highest doctrine that there is.  After preaching on it last Sunday I am inclined to agree.  It is a profound and beautiful teaching – that is absolutely life changing once you get it and believe it.  Many of us were deeply moved and assured by it.
