From October 2019 to February 2020, Pastor David preached through the Song of Solomon. This romantic musical in the word of God displays the love of Christ to his bride, the church, and the necessity for the church’s fervent love back in return to our beloved Husband, Jesus Christ.

Psalm 1 contrasts for us two paths of life: the way of the righteous versus the way of the ungodly. This chapter describes the characteristics of both ways, and then concludes with the end for each course of life. The way of the righteous is known by the Lord; the righteous have intimate fellowship and communion with God when following God’s will in God’s way and flourish in fruitfulness. On the other hand, the final end of the way of the ungodly shall ultimately perish.
As we begin to make New Year’s Resolutions for the upcoming year in 2020, arguably no resolution is more important than a renewed commitment to the reading and study of God’s word. We hope you will embark with us on this one year Bible reading plan designed to read your Bible all the way through in the next year.
Last week I was on the road for four days traveling for work and church in Tennessee. I was sick most of the week so it had not been the most fun trip overall. As I was beginning my return trip, after driving through a stiff rain and pretty strong winds for quite a few miles, the rain cleared and then I saw a rainbow in my rearview mirror. It was interesting because when I drive through what appeared to be that rainbow’s location (maybe 5 miles back) I could not see anything in that place but rain, strong winds, and storm clouds. Even though I only saw the storm when I was in the midst of it, after I passed on and the effects of the storm had calmed, I could look back in hindsight in my rearview mirror and see the rainbow in the exact location that I had just experienced a storm.

“Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.” (Haggai 1:7)
In America, we want the “effects” of revival without the uncomfortable and life rearranging “causes” of revival. We all want to see new converts come to the truth, baptisms, churches growing, even churches being planted; we all want to see the effects of revival. However, we are unwilling to deeply and intimately evaluate the areas of our life that need to change and repent of the actions that initiate such a revival. Radical repentance – not just casually feeling sorry for some of our actions but radical, life rearranging changes in our lives – is one of the great causes of revival that we are unwilling to undertake. THERE IS NO REVIVAL WITHOUT RADICAL REPENTANCE.
It’s commonly taught in “decisional Christianity” today that one can follow the “Romans Road to Salvation”, ultimately confess and believe on Jesus Christ and be saved to eternal life. This supposed road to eternal salvation follows certain verses in the book of Romans culminating in Rom. 10:9, calling upon the sinner to confess and believe on Jesus Christ and pray the Sinner’s Prayer to be saved. This Romans Road to Salvation – which we will call the “Free Will Romans Road” for clarification purposes – is generally centered around five questions and corresponding verses from Romans to answer each question.
These messages were delivered by Pastor David on the Gospel of Grace Radio Broadcast from July to September 2019 surrounding his preaching trip to Kenya in July 2019. God sovereignly opens doors for the gospel to be spread but we also must be willing to press through those doors despite the many adversaries that might oppose us. We look at examples in scripture of God’s open doors, how we are to press through those open doors, and then also our necessity to pray for open doors for the gospel.
From November 2018 to February 2019, on Wednesday nights Pastor David preached through the 15th chapter of 1st Corinthians. This chapter gives us the most in-depth vision of the resurrection of the dead in the New Testament and strengthens our hope looking towards the second coming and the resurrrection at the last day.
