SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE:
Theology of Adoption


Download (right-click) or Listen Now:

All life is valuable since everyone is made in the image of God. As Christians and believers in the Word, we do all that we can to support life and fight for justice, whether that be for the unborn or the unwanted. We are a people who value life. One of the ways that we do that is through adoption. It is no secret that I have worked to build a culture of adoption here at Trinity Baptist. I want us to see the need and do all that we can as a church to meet the need. I am blessed to be a part of a community of faith that embraces that work. Glenna and I have personally seen and experienced the heart of this church for adoption. I thank you for that.

Ephesians 6:10-13: Be Strong in the Lord Print E-mail

‘We are at war!’ Would you believe me if I declared that this morning? Newspaper’s and politicians and military leaders have shouted that throughout the history of the world. It is news that soldiers need to know. It is news that citizens need to know. Any time a country decides to go to war, the people need to be informed as much as possible. Why? Obviously the soldiers need to know (and usually know first) so that they can get ready for deployment. But why do the citizens need to know? In the World Wars it was important for citizens to know about the war because it changed the way that life was lived in America. The shortage of men meant more women in the workforce. The need for weapons and ammunition meant various changes at factories and manufacturers. It changed the way money was spent and time was spent. It was talked about at school and work and church. The reality of war impacted much of life even for people who were not directly fighting. Things have obviously changed since then. Wars on foreign shores are not as publicized these days. People are not as knowledgeable of what is happening. Business and daily life is not impacted. In fact, you can live at home in America like the country is not at war. The declaration of war has almost become ho-hum in our society.

Ephesians 6:1-9: Obedience Print E-mail

In Ephesians 5:22-23 Paul addressed the Husbands and wives on how the family should operate according to God’s plan. But before that in the beginning of chap 5 he addresses each individual Christian on how to walk in this world. And the key verse that ties this whole family construction together is Eph 5:1  Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. Before Paul instructs us on how the family should function he tells us we should first take care of our personal relationship with Christ! Now to some people this might sound selfish, but it is actually the opposite. If my goal in life is to be an imitator of Christ, the how much more will I love my spouse? My children? My fellow brothers and sisters? This brings us to our text today.

Ephesians 5:22-33: The Mystery of Marriage Print E-mail

As we reflect on 2017 and think ahead to 2018, many of us are perhaps thinking about resolutions for the new year. Maybe we are starting a diet on Monday. Maybe we are starting a new Bible reading plan (you can join with us for the Daily Feast!) Maybe you have some financial goals or work-related goals for the year. Maybe you have some financial goals or church-related goals for the year. Can I make a suggestion for what I think could be one of the most important resolutions you could have for 2018? Here it is: ‘I resolve to do all that I can to have a marriage that displays the gospel.’ How many of us would commit ourselves to that in the coming year?

Luke 2:1-21: The Blessing of Glorification Print E-mail

I have been reading the book of Revelation this week to finish up my Bible Reading Plan for 2017. Apparently others have been following the same plan. Russell Moore wrote about doing the same thing a couple of years ago. He writes: “We must remember that ultimately we will not coo over (Jesus) in a cradle beneath us, but give an account to him as our sovereign Judge and give glory to him as our sovereign King.” Although it might seem odd for us to be thinking about Revelation and judgement during the season, it is entirely appropriate. In fact, even as we look at Luke’s account of the birth of Jesus, we can see reasons to be thinking about His return. Let’s walk through that together this morning.

Some tasks require great care. Ian has a set of wooden blocks that he loves to build with. He drags them out and plops down on our rug and says: ‘Build, dada.’ We have been doing this for a few months. The other day we were working on a ‘doggy house’ (which is pretty much what we are always building) and I noticed him setting a block on top and saying: ‘Ebey, ebey.’ These particular blocks don’t fit together and so anything we build takes some precision. Needless to say, precision is difficult for a 2.5 year old. Thus, when we first started building with them and we trying to put the finishing touches on our doggy house, I would tell him: ‘Easy, easy.’ The other day I realized he was just repeating back to me what I had told him. And even though he is still working on actually being ‘easy’ in his building, he’s at least getting closer to saying it right! Hopefully the actual precision can come later!
