Willing to follow His will (Ac 16)

My son Rory returned home from after his sophomore year at BJU. He is training for the ministry so we often give him preaching opportunities when he is home. This summer he will be leading a teen/college age Sunday School class for us.

In preparation for his class surveying the book of Philippians, Rory prepared a message on Acts 16, the record of the founding of the Philippian church. The theme of the message is submission to the Lord’s will, as seen in Paul’s life in this chapter.

The Nature of Angels (2)

In which we conclude our discussion of the nature of angels as spiritual beings, immortal, higher than men [but lower than God], and originally holy.

God is Against Sin (Rm 1.18)

As we begin to look into detail at Paul’s exposition of man’s problem we come to his proposition, Rm 1.18. I sum it up in our title, ‘God is Against Sin’. God is completely against sin, God is against all sin, God is against sin whether sinners accept it or not. The significance of this truth is that God is against sin, but not sinners. Since man’s condition is so desperate, only righteousness from God can solve it.

5.21.08 Evangelistic Service – Ken Lynch

May 21, 2008

All We Like Sheep (Isa 53.6)

Our last message of the evangelistic meetings concerned the message of Isaiah 53.6. Evangelist Ken Lynch described the waywardness, willfulness and wickedness of man … and the wonder of our Saviour. O that men would hear him!

5.20.08 Evangelistic Service – Ken Lynch

The Rich Young Ruler (Mt 19.16-22)

Evangelist Ken Lynch brought another powerful evangelistic message in our service tonight concerning the rich young ruler. He emphasized that the rich young ruler was respected, religious, and respected Christ. He was rich, but his riches could not obtain the sense of loss he experienced in his life. To his loss, his earthly mindset was fixed on making a deal with Christ so that he could obtain eternal life. What a tragedy … eternal life was available for him, but he would not do the one thing that was needed most of all, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Vision of Isaiah (Isa 6)

Evangelist Ken Lynch brought another powerful message for us tonight from Isaiah’s vision. Men reject what little they know of God, but if they would look at the Lord and who he is, if they would look at themselves as they really are, they would beg and plead God for pardon for their sins. Bro. Lynch gave us a closing illustration that brought out the difference between men who value pardons and men who do not.

Responsibilities to the Lord Thy God (Dt 13.4)

Concluding the message from earlier in the day, bro Lynch emphasized our relationship to our personal God and our responsibilities to walk with Him, obey Him, and serve Him.

Today’s messages were a great blessing to us all. I believe brother Lynch fulfilled the mandate of Eph 4 where Paul says evangelists (among others) are God’s gift to the church to equip the saints for the work of the ministry.

The Lord Proves You (Dt 13.3)

In our Bible Study time, bro. Lynch began a message from Dt 13. In the first part of the message, he emphasized the fact that the Lord works in our lives, bringing even false prophets in contact with us (as well as other trials) to prove or test our need of the Lord … and the quality of our relationship with Him.

Blessed are the Forgiven (Ps 32.1-5)

We are blessed these next four days to have Evangelist Ken Lynch speaking (and playing various instruments) in our services. Brother Lynch first visited our work about 14 years ago while on vacation with his family. We are glad to see him return for special meetings with us.

The first message of the day was a sound exposition of the condition of sin, the consequences of sin, the conviction of sin, the confession of sin and the cancellation of sin. The message was a thorough examination especially of the condition of sin and its confession. There was no doubt concerning the solution for the sinner: turn to Christ, have your sins forgiven, covered, and cancelled.
