Authority of The Word in Worship @AlbertMohler

“The norm of our worship must be the Word of God, the Word that He Himself has spoken. As we turn to this Word, we see a pattern of acceptable worship, a pattern that is repeated throughout the fabric of Scripture from beginning to end. Scripture is, as the Reformers confessed, norma ormans non normata, “the norm of norms which cannot be normed.” That is what we mean when we say “sola scriptura”— that Scripture is the norm of our worship. There is nothing external to Scripture that can “norm” or correct it.”

The Work of a Preacher according to @CharlesSpurgeon

People warned Spurgeon that he would break down physically and emotionally under the stress of such expansive preaching. Spurgeon replied: “If I have done so, I am glad of it. I would do the same again. If I had fifty constitutions I would rejoice to break them down in the service of the Lord Jesus Christ.” He added: “We find ourselves able to preach ten or twelve times a week, and we find we are the stronger for it…. ‘Oh,’ said one of the members, ‘our minister will kill himself.’ … That is the kind of work that will kill no man. It is preaching to sleepy congregations that kills good ministers.” Spurgeon found strength in preaching.

Back to School @SWBTS

Back to School at SWBTSSWBTS

I just finished my first day of my last year as an Master of Divinity student at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I must say that coming to this school and experiencing the enthusiasm of the students and faculty to share the gospel is inspiring and exciting.

It truly is a blessing.

To all my fellow students, I hope and pray you have a great year and that God would use this time to prepare you.

To all my professors, I hope and pray you teach the students well and be willing to give grace as the students need.

Preach the Word! Reach The World!

In the @SWBTS news! :D

CampusNews  Thorough Gospel presentations bear fruit

I just received an email from the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and I was in an article with one of my favorite professors, Dr. Matt Queen (@DrMattQueen).

As you would think, I am pretty stoked. I was very encouraged by the kind words of Dr. Queen and his wise words of instruction. I hope that it is an inspiration for others to go and intentionally seek the lost.

How connected to God are you as a Christian?

In my devotional this morning I was inspired by the content that Oswald Chambers put forth. He addresses an issue that is not discussed as much as it should be in the Christian world today. Chambers addressed the topic of how to get more connected with God. I paraphrased a few of my thoughts while reading … Read moreHow connected to God are you as a Christian?
