Blind Spots

Last Sunday we saw that perhaps the “good old days” weren’t as good as we thought. We saw that the church in the New Testament had many flaws. We saw that while our heroes of the faith had shining moments, they also had seasons marked with failure. Peter forgot the Gospel, Martin Luther became a racist and John Calvin burned Severus at the stake.

Are We Speaking Their Language?

I’m always amazed at what the Apostle Paul does when engaging a group of people who had never heard about Jesus Christ. He doesn’t use fancy words and he doesn’t tell a story from the Bible; rather he uses a pagan idol to point people to the One True God.

The Danger of Reading Your Bible

Most Christians know they should read their Bible on a regular basis. But what if I told you God cares more about how we read our Bibles than how often we read our Bibles?

God's Gift Is A Ghost?

Seriously, when was the last time you thanked God for the Holy Spirit? The Bible teaches us that the Holy Spirit is a gift. Apostle Peter calls the Holy Spirit a gift: “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). Apostle Paul also refers to the Holy Spirt as a gift: “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.

There Is No Plan B

God has chosen one institution to stand the test of time, one institution to be His primary vehicle for proclaiming and displaying the fullness of the Gospel: the church. Jesus said that He’d establish His church and the gates of Hades would not overcome it (Matthew 16:18). This means that Edinbrook Church, a local church, is a visible fulfillment of Jesus’ promise made two-thousand years ago.
