Matt Chandler, pastor of The Village Church in Dallas, Texas, wants churches to cultivate a gospel-breathed environment, where people see it’s okay to not be okay, but it is not okay to stay there.
During the final session of the 9Marks at Southeastern conference on Saturday, Chandler followed the account of the Ephesian church throughout the New Testament, recognizing their doctrinal soundness, but also their loss of their first love.
The church at Ephesus, praised in Revelation as a faithful, patient and sound church, is also called out as one that has turned from their first love and turned to another gospel, as Paul discusses in Galatians 1.… Read More...
The text of Philippians weds together Christology and practical theology, exemplifying excellent Biblical theology, said Daniel Akin.
Akin, president of Southeastern, opened Saturday’s events of the 9Marks at Southeastern conference by exegeting the text of Philippians 1:27-2:11. “I want to try and show you how biblical theology informs systematic theology and practical theology and how it helps us cultivate our Christology as well,” Akin said. … Read More...
David Platt desires that all people be people whose affections have been awakened and provoked, to see and love the grandeur of God.
During the Friday evening session of the 9Marks at Southeastern conference, Platt, who pastors The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Ala., asked the gathered pastors and church members to meditate on the glory and grandeur of the Lord.
Looking at Isaiah 6 and later, Isaiah 53, Platt said we can see the holiness of God as Isaiah recognized after the death of King Uzziah, when he saw the true king still seated on the throne.
“We have an incomprehensibly great God,” Platt said.… Read More...
Thabiti Anyabwile, pastor of First Baptist Church on Grand Cayman Island, challenged a man-centered view of freedom during the afternoon session of 9Marks at Southeastern.
Anyabwile spoke from Romans 9, arguing that a high view of the sovereignty of God is a vital part of a robust biblical theology. This is true despite the fact that we often like to think of ourselves as having true and absolute liberty in all matters, including salvation.
Anyabwile acknowledged that the first reaction of many people to the doctrine of election as laid out in Romans 9 is emotional, not intellectual.
“God’s purpose is not that our hearts would discolor his truth, but that his truth would color our hearts,” he said.… Read More...
Mark Dever, pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church and president of 9Marks, opened the 9Marks at Southeastern by preaching on the message of the entire Bible: in the Old Testament God makes promises, and in the New Testament he keeps them, through Christ.
“Christ is the promise of the entire Bible. He is the promised redeemer,” Dever said.
Dever walked through the Scriptures, showing how the Old Testament provides the context for Christ and the New Testament points to him as the fulfillment of everything God has said and promised to his covenant people.
Dever ended his session where the Scripture ends: with the promise of God dwelling with his people forever.… Read More...
