The marks that characterised Paul's ministry Part 1

Series: The Book of Acts

Paul is preparing to leave for Jerusalem but before he goes we see the what is best described as the marks which characterised his ministry and depth of affection he has for the church of Jesus Christ. These marks ought to be found in every session amongst it's elders whether they be teaching or ruling elders. Depth of affection for Christ will result in depth of affection for His blook bought people. Let us not be neglectful in cultivating such affection in the lives of each individual member in and for the church of Jesus Christ.

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake

Series: Studies in The Sermon on The Mount

In this final beatitude we consider the lot of the christian, that is a life of persecution for both righteousness and Christ's sake. Church history bears testimony from the 1st century right up to the most violent persecution against Christ's church which many will be surprised to find out was the 20th century. In an ever increasing antagonism against Christianity in the western world we are instructed by Christ to expect persecution and to have our eyes fixed upon heaven. AW Pink reminds us in his book "Comfort for Christians": "One breath of Paradise will extinguish all the adverse winds of earth".

Witnessing for Christ

Paul moves to Corinth. Here we see that which Luke describes in Acts 1:1 as those things "which Jesus began to do and teach".

Blessed are the pure in heart

Series: Studies in The Sermon on The Mount

In this verse is it as if Christ is saying "No more pretending!" Christ's Word comes in power as it delves into the secret parts of the hearts to reveal how the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked and impresses upon the hearers at the Sermon on the Mount the necessity of having a pure heart. In this sermon Rev Robb expounds on the heart which God Himself has declared to be the seat of religion.

  • Matthew 5: 8

Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

Series: The Book of Acts

Unfolding in this portion of Scripture is the sovereign and eternal purpose of God both in providence and election. Here Luke records not only the fact of the gaoler's conversion but also the facts surrounding his conversion. The gaoler's conversion does not begin at verse 25 but rather we see how the LORD ordered providence from verse 16 to 24 where Paul, Silas and Luke end up locked in a cell. In this sermon we consider the gaolor's question and Paul's reply.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy

Series: Studies in The Sermon on The Mount

Today's consideration is the 5th beatitude. This beatitude, as does the remaining beatitudes continues to examine the christian's character. We have as it were, a reminder of the second table of the Ten commandments (Commandments 5 - 10) which refers to the duty God that requires of man to his or her neighbour. The christian ought then to possess mercy and be merciful to their neighbour for of such is their Father in Heaven who is plenteous in mercy.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness

Series: Studies in The Sermon on The Mount

In a world filled with conflict of sorts and types and in particular wars, Martyn Lloyd-Jones comments regarding this verse that "If every man and woman in this world know what it was to hunger and thirst after righteousness, there would be no danger of war. Here is the ONLY way to real peace."
