When the Spirit of God Begins To Move (Sinclair Ferguson)bromattsblog

Thu, 14 May 2009 17:10:00 +0000

(I recently came across this in Ferguson’s work, In Christ Alone: Living the Gospel-Centered Life, and had to share this with you.) Many years ago, I witnessed revival in its most microcosmic form in a sudden, unexpected, and remarkable work of God’s Spirit on a friend. The work was so dramatic, the effect so radical, […](image)

Membership: Does It Have Value for American Christians?bromattsblog

Tue, 12 May 2009 21:34:00 +0000

This summer, our leadership here at Boone’s Creek will evaluate the role of membership.  Some churches have decided against membership, some make their membership very stringent.  Some are, obviously, at all points  in-between!  In the case of our church, we have a number who are what we call non-attending members.  They are non-attending for the […](image)

Being a Titus 2 Womanbromattsblogclip_image002

Fri, 08 May 2009 18:53:00 +0000

Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may […](image)

The Purpose of Spiritual Giftsbromattsblog

Thu, 07 May 2009 13:39:00 +0000

This is a study given on Wednesday, May 6, 2009 at Boone’s Creek Baptist Church, Lexington, KY. ____________  “A spiritual gift is any ability that is empowered by the Holy Spirit and used in any ministry of the church” (Wayne Grudem, Systematic Theology, p. 1016). Last week, we discussed the gift that God has given […](image)

Getting Ready for Sunday Morning Worshipbromattsblogbcbc

Wed, 06 May 2009 22:41:00 +0000

Recently, I put up a Facebook status saying, in essence, how helpful it would be for us to start getting ready for Sunday worship on Saturday evening—and cut down on the TV, Facebook, or other things that distract us from being alert and ready the next morning.  I received a lot of interesting feedback.  Yet, […](image)

God Has Called Us To Be Expositional Listenersbromattsblog

Sat, 02 May 2009 01:29:00 +0000

You’ve heard of expositional preaching, which is taking the main point of a passage of Scripture and making it the main point of a sermon. But did you know there is such a thing as “expositional listening”? Thabiti Anyabwile, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman in the first chapter of his book, […](image)

We’ll Remember Eight Belles—And Her Creatorbromattsblog

Fri, 01 May 2009 17:45:00 +0000

John Clay’s article, "Eight Belles Connections Trying to Move Past Tragedy," is an especially sad reminder of how fragile life is, even among such powerful and majestic creatures as horses.  While the average fan may not remember who won Derby 134 (Big Brown, by the way), everyone remembers the tragedy during turn 1 of the […](image)

Sun, 26 Apr 2009 03:40:00 +0000

Brian Hamrick both lost and won on April 24, 2009. I met Brian soon after he became pastor of the First Baptist Church of Clewiston, Florida, via e-mail and telephone. He and I shared the same convictions theologically and pastorally, making him a fast friend in the faith. I had the privilege of serving at […](image)
