Biblical Living – An Easter Dinner through Friends of Internationals

It was a typical Easter dinner. Splayed on my kitchen counters was a smorgasbord of home-cooked food as the guests picked over lamb, mashed potatoes, fruit salad, pie … more food than I can quantify. All the smells mixed together in the most wonderful way. This was one of the few sweet times each year […]

Acts 21:17-26 Paul Surrendering His Rights For His Brothers

The great principle incumbent on all Christians, with a view to the salvation of others, is to go as far as one can without untruthfulness in the direction of finding points of resemblance and contact with those to whom we would commend the Gospel. There is a base counterfeit of this apostolic example, which slurs […]

Romans 8:31-39 – Easter Service 2014

I want to explain to you the reasons why he knew that he was not condemned and never should be. Paul says, “It is Christ who died.” That is to say, it is the Son of God who died and there must be infinite merit in the Atonement which was presented by the sufferings of […]

Acts 20:17-38 The Priority of The Gospel

Paul’s only concern was to finish the work. Verse 24, I just love this, “None of these things move me. I mean I don’t care in every town, if they keep telling me, even via the Holy Spirit, that I’m going to get it when I get there, that doesn’t bother me, I do not […]

The Things That Matter – Notes from the CLC Internship

If you were to ask, “What are you most grateful for?” Covenant Life Church would hover at the top of my list. A while ago, I told one of the pastors it was not his preaching (although very edifying) that drew me to the church. It was more subtle things that caught my attention. To […]
