Up from the Grave: The Resurrection
General Session 12 by Tom Pennington
2017 Shepherds' Conference

What is the importance of Christ's resurrection?  What does it have to do with the gospel?  How does it follow the substitutionary atonement of Christ?  What does this all mean for us?

SERMON: Parables on Hearing and Delivering the Word | Mark 4:21–25

Parables on Hearing and Delivering the Word | Mark 4:21–25
Shaun Marksbury | Quacco Baptist Church
Sunday Evening Service | 18 June, 2017

These parables emphasize the need for the His disciples to hear the Word and deliver it to others faithfully.  So, we have two points this evening: those hearing God’s Word must shine it out faithfully, and those hearing God’s Word must measure it out faithfully.

I.Introduction Last time we saw the parable of the soils.  Historically, it’s called the parable of the sower, but we saw that Jesus’s emphasis was on the kinds of hearts that react to His Word. 
·There are those who will never allow the Word to penetrate.  The seed is either consumed by the birds or trampled down underfoot, but the heart is impermeable (v. 15).  That was the condition of the Pharisees as they committed the unpardona…

Trusting the God of Righteousness | Psalm 11:4–7

          The Lord is in his holy temple;             the Lord’s throne is in heaven;             his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man.           The Lord tests the righteous,             but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.           Let him rain coals on the wicked;             fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.           For the Lord is righteous;             he loves righteous deeds;             the upright shall behold his face.
David had reasons to flee danger, and the first three verses logically present his danger, not emotionally.  Even so, there are times when the men (and women) of God should withstand the evil of their day.  This was one time, and David could remain steadfast because of his confidence in the Lord.
He knows the Lord sovereignly rules (v. 4a–b).  Verse 4 could possibly reference God’s presence with His covenant people in the earthly temple.  Even so, the second phrase of…

If The World Hates You: Preaching Christ in the Face of Hostility by Al Mohler
2017 Shepherds' Conference

Can we make peace with this culture?  Is this culture neutral in regards to Christ?  Can we gain enough influence to make the world love us and our Lord?  The answer to all these questions is no, and we need to come to terms with this.

A Quick Example of How to Read the Bible "Literally"

Image
Mark 4:1 in the KJV reads, "And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land."
Consider the words "and sat in the sea." What a strange image develops if we were to ignore all else and focus on those words alone! Jesus walks on the water, so does He now sit on or in it? Or, perhaps a sandbar kept His body aloft in the water.
No, of course not.
You might rightly note the immediate context says, "he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea." So, does this mean that He sat in a leaky boat? Perhaps as the boat filled, He "sat in the sea."
No, no, no.
Just because we could get a unique meaning out of a verse by reading the words in such a way doesn't mean that we are reading the Bible "literally." It isn't applying meanings that no one has ever interpreted it as saying. It isn't r…
