PCA Membership Vows, Part 2

The Church is made up of all kinds of people. There are those who have been Christians their entire lives and those who are brand new to the faith. There are those who feel as if they are barely hanging on and those with vibrant faith, who are in a season of deep growth. In any given congregation, all of these people live together in community. It is God's design for his C...

PCA Membership Vows, Part 1

I once had the privilege of waiting at the airport with a group of friends for the arrival of three special people. Two had left for China, but three were on the return flight. And their friends and family members stood around in anticipation of greeting the newest family member who had been recently adopted. Not only did this family grow in number, but a new member would ...

Ordinary Means of Grace, Part 6

We will wrap up our series on the ordinary means of grace by considering the hope that is ours in these means. First, when we speak of the hope that is ours as Christians, we mean a hope that is certain to be fulfilled. We aren't using the word the way it is often used in Englishto describe a wish that we would like to have fulfilled, and maybe it will and maybe it won't....

Ordinary Means of Grace, Part 5

We've been considering the "ordinary means of grace" over the past fewweeks. These are the means by which God ordinarily cares for us, comforting us, building us up into the image of Christ, sanctifying us, making us ready as a bride adorned for her husband. We've discussed the Word of God, particularly the preaching of the Word. We've also looked at the sacramentsbaptism ...

In these sacramentsbaptism and the Lord's SupperGod gives us signs and seals of his promised grace toward us. In so doing, he strengthens us and builds us up for our vocation in the world until Christ returns. Our Father knows our weaknesses, and so he gives us sensible si...

Ordinary Means of Grace, Part 3

The ordinary means of grace are central to our ministry at All Saints because we believe they are the answer to the question, "How does God ordinarily provide for his Church?" Are we mourning and in need of comfort? Are we afraid and in need of reassurance? Are we meek when we need to be bold? Sinning and in need of repentance? Whatever we need, it is God who provides, and...

Ordinary Means of Grace, Part 2

As we continue thinking through the ordinary means of grace, the first thing we should address is the word "ordinary." Why do we call them that? Doesn't "ordinary"sound boring? It certainly doesn't sound very exciting. First, we should recognize that it's being used in contrast to "extraordinary." We're talking about how God works. God certainly can and does work in extra...
