He Didn’t Go Home Again

Devote Yourself to the Public Reading: Enhancing the Role of Scripture Reading in Worship

The Bible often is read poorly in our church services; but when it is read well, it can minister as deeply as a Spirit-empowered sermon. Unfortunately, in many churches public reading of the Bible is little more than homiletical throat clearing before the sermon; but as W.E. Sangster asserted: "Bible reading offers the widest scope for the enrichment of public worship, and it is a great pity that the Scriptures are often so badly readWhen the Book is well read and made to live for the people, it can do for them what sermons often fail to d It can be the very voice of God to their souls."

Proper 28 (C): Window of Opportunity

In our text today, Peter, James and John ask three questions: 1) When will the temple be destroyed? 2) What will be the sign of His coming? 3) What will be the end of the age? Our Lord's reply is what we today call "The Olivet Discourse" and is expanded in Matthew 24 and 25.

Faith and Failure

There are many people in Scripture who have failed miserably and been restored and re-commissioned by God. Such people were assigned important tasks in the kingdom of God and achieved great things for God by His grace. It is important to consider the whole notion of 'faith and failure' from a Scriptural perspective and meet the people whose lives (including their mistakes and sins) are recorded for our instruction and edification.
