Of the Lord’s Day, Sermons, and Weekdays

OF THE LORD’S DAY, SERMONS, AND WEEKDAYS

HAVE a special care to sanctify the Lord’s day; for as thou keepest it, so will it be with thee all the week long.

Make the Lord’s day the market for thy soul, let the whole day be spent in prayer, repetitions, or meditations; lay aside the affairs the other parts of the week: let the sermon thou hast heard be converted into prayer. Shall God allow thee six days, and wilt not thou afford him one?

In the church be careful to serve God: for thou art in his eyes, and not in man’s.

Thou mayest hear sermons often, and do well in practicing what thou hearest; but thou must not expect to be told thee in a pulpit all that thou oughtest to do, but be studious in searching the Scriptures, and reading good books. What thou hearest may be forgotten; but what thou readest may be better retained. Forsake not the public worship of God, lest God forsake thee, not only in public but in private.

In the week-days when thou rises, in the morning, consider,

1. Thou must die.

2. Thou mayest die that minute.

3. What will become of thy soul. Pray often.

At night consider,

1. What sins thou hast committed.

2. How often thou hast prayed.

3. What hath thy mind been bent upon

4. What hath been thy dealing.

5. What thy conversation.

6. If thou callest to mind the errors of the day, sleep not without a confession to God, and a hope of pardon. Thus, every morning and evening, make up thy accounts with Almighty God, and thy reckoning will be the less at last.

What is Submission?

by Bill Hier

What Is Submission?

(This is a sermon I preached a couple of months ago to our congregation at On The Way Reformed Baptist Church, Oak Hills, CA – I asked input from my brethren on whether I should post it as a blog article, and the consensus was overwhelmingly “yes,” much to my surprise. Here it is, therefore – I pray it is of use to the body catholic, as it was to my brethren as the local covenant community).

Ephesians 5:21: submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

This verse, when exposited, gives us practical implications to better help us in learning how we are to submit to God and one another, and shows that submission takes place in a hierarchy, or a hierarchal order. That order is prevalent throughout Special Revelation (Scripture), and always begins with the creature submitting to the Creator. While the Creator/creature distinction exists, the need to recognize that distinction exists, and it works out, practically, down through the created order.

A Recording of Charles Spurgeon’s Son Reading From His Final Sermon

January 11, 2016 2 comments

charles_twin_sonsx1-300x496Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) and his wife Susannah were married on January 8, 1856. He was 21, she was 23. Susannah became pregnant right away with fraternal twins. Charles Jr. and Thomas Spurgeon (1856-1917) were born later that year in September, just a month prior to the tragedy at the Royal Surrey Gardens Music Hall while Charles was preaching.

After Charles Spurgeon died in 1892, his son Thomas returned to England from New Zealand and served for 15 years as pastor of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London.

The comparisons between father and son were inevitable, as W.Y. Fullerton recorded…

A King Like David

August 15, 2014 1 comment

Spurgeon 6“God promised to David that his seed should always sit upon his throne, but if Jesus dies, then is that Covenant broken? That Jesus’ reign may endure forever, He must live. Though He bows His head in death, yet must He live. He must rise again, otherwise the King is gone, the throne is vacant, the Covenant has failed. Jesus must rise from the dead, else how can He save His people? Can a dead Christ save us? The Church of Rome continually sets before us Christ either as a Baby in His mother’s arms, or else as a Man dead on the Cross. Neither of these is a true portrait of Christ! He is no more a Baby and He is no more dead! He sits on the Throne of God, reigning and ruling, and He will come, the second time, without sin, unto salvation! The living Christ is our hope! It is witnessed of Him that He lives at the right hand of God and, as I quoted to you just now, it is for this reason that ‘He is able, also, to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever lives to make intercession for them.’”—1894, Sermon #2366

Why I am Reformed Baptist

April 19, 2012 6 comments

I did not stumble upon the doctrines held by Reformed Baptist by accident. I came out of independent charismatic churches and out of a system known as dispensationalism. I learned Reformed Theology from listening to the well known teacher and Professor named R. C. Sproul.

When I came to the knowledge of Reformed Theology I began to read everything I could get my hands on that would teach me the Reformed understanding of the Bible. Therefore, I leaned heavily towards the infant baptism point of view at first. I struggled and read and listened to multiple sermons on the subject of infant baptism and believer’s only baptism.

After a while of struggling and moving back and forth between the two positions, I came down hard on the side of the Reformed Baptist views of scripture and the sacraments of the church. I would now consider myself a follower of those early American Puritans who came to the knowledge of the truth on baptism and switched their views from infant baptism to believer’s only baptism.

I am Reformed, Baptist, Covenantal, and Amillennial.

 

I point you to a sermon by James White that explains “Why I am reformed Baptist?”
