This site will feature Bible-based articles some days, silly posts and quotes at least twice a week and facts about Jack the Ripper-to begin with.

These are my notes frm a sermon by Phillip by the same name as the title.

We live in an age of communication. It still boils down to 3 things-you’re telling something, showing something, implying something. It’s self-evident. We’re built that way, God built us that way.

2 Tim.3:16

New Testament

*The Gospels-life of Jesus

*Acts-records of first Christians

*The Letters-correspondence with first Christians

Why did Gd give these to us? He’s trying to communicate with us.

1)Telling

Subject-worries Phil. 4:6-7-“Be anxious for nothing…let requests be made known to God”

Gospel Subject-enemies Matt. 5:43-44-“love enemies”

2)Showing Acts 2:36-3 -“Jesus…Lord…what do we do? Repent…be baptized for remission of sins”

Subject-Needy believers Acts 2:44-45-“sold their possessions”

3)Implications

Subject-Assembling Heb. 10:24-25-“stir up love, not forsake the assembly…but exhorting one another”

Subject-Day of Lord’s Supper Acts 20:7-“1st day of week, gathered to break bread” 1Cr.11, Lev.23:34-“1st day of 7th month”

Whenever yu run into 1st day of week-Lord’s Supper

Why is this important?

1)It is an issue of how much we trust God. We want to tinker with things God has given us. We need to listen to God. It should be enough.

2) It is a measurement of our humilty before God. American culture-stems frm arrgance-go find out, conquer, make it better

3) It is a test of dependency on God. We need his direction. Like going to unfamiliar city and not knowing way around.

4) It is a reflection of how “in touch” we are.

Jhn 14:15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” Jhn 1-Jesus is called “The Word”.
