Prayers going out to the family of the great R.C. Sproul! This man has touched many lives including my own. His book "What is Reformed Theology?", was the very first theological book that I had placed in my hands after I first professed faith in Christ and was most influential in my forming my understanding of theology proper and the word of God. A servant leader to the end, we know you enjoyed hearing the words "well done my good and humble servant". #oneofthegreats #theologian #theologymatters #doctrinematters #leftalegacy #livesthatmatter #servantleader

Rest well sir.
These 2 books as well as countless videos and resources from #RCSproul have blessed me over the years since finding out about him around 10 years ago. He is now beholding the Savior whom he's been proclaiming for decades. May we be as bold in the faith who are still here. Salute!

It is possible to have a sound theology without having a sound life. But we cannot have a sound life without sound theology. -RC Sproul

One our favorite sayings by R.C. Sproul. Through his life and example, he has challenged and inspired many including ourselves to not only know Scripture, but to be devoted to Scripture regardless of what culture may say otherwise. Thank you for your commitment to Scripture and most of all thank you for your commitment to Christ. #RCSproul

Via @abwe_intl - Is every Christian a missionary? Charles Spurgeon once said, “Every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter.” @davidcmathis gives a helpful reply.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are all commanded to participate in bearing the gospel to those around us. But the problem is, when everyone is a missionary, or “on mission,” or “living missionally,” eventually no one is. Or at least, not specifically among the unreached and least-reached.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When everyone is responsible for a task, the definition of that task gets downgraded and no one ever gets around to doing it. That’s the situation we’re in today as less than 10% of all Christian missionaries are even working with the unreached (Ellison & Spitters, “When Everything is Missions”).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You may be called to be a Pauline, pioneering, apostolic missionary—the kind who plants churches and preaches Christ in churchless people groups. Or you may be a Timothy who goes and supports the work initiated by others. Or perhaps you’re called to be like the church at Antioch—sending out missionaries, “holding the rope,” but not themselves engaged as missionaries yet still faithfully evangelizing at home. We do not all have the same function; we are parts in the body. Pray that God would raise up from your church’s midst more pioneering missionaries to reach the 6,500 unreached people groups of the world who are still blind to God’s glory and Hell-bound.

The world lost probably the greatest modern reformed theologian (in my opinion) today. May our hope always be in Christ. May Jesus always be the joy of our hearts. And may we know we have no fear in death, but victory, victory that was found at the cross. I pray the Sproul family will know that so many are praying for them in this time. But may we rejoice for RC that he is beholding his Savior right now. #reformedtheology #rcsproul #ligonierministries #theologymatters

This Sunday, we’re taking up a Christmas Offering. We have big dreams next year of expanding and improving our children’s and families ministry, helping other church planters, saving for our own building, and more! We hope you will join us in this endeavor.

A controversy! The message we bring to the world is exactly that; controversial! Think about it, we dare to have the audacity and go to people and disrupt their ingrained notion that they are the captains of their own ships, the Masters of their domains, that they are free to do whatever they wish without lasting consequences! We tell them that there is one greater than them that has a right to their lives and the ability to hold them accountable, not just in this life but the one to come as well. We tell them that they are at enmity with this same God and in eternal, mortal danger! And then we present them with what we refer to as the good news; that despite their sins and their being literal enemies of God, this very same God himself made a way for them to be redeemed and have perfect righteousness imputed to them through his son, the second person of the Godhead, our Lord AND Savior Jesus the Christ! THAT is controversial and offensive by nature and enough to present. So we need not be blatantly and extra controversial by way of what we say, do, wear or support. Like it or not, we are ambassadors for Christ and forfeit the freedom to do whatever we wish. And if you believe that extra controversy is necessary in order to draw unbelievers in or to make yourself appear relevant and hip to them...then perhaps your priorities are in the wrong place and the message you present isn't clear enough. Befriending the world at the expense of losing credibility with it is too costly a price and one that you have no right to incur!

This was just too good not to share! I love that one of the theologic implications of the book of Ecclesiastes is that genuine faith allows room for us to wrestle with questions and doubts. .

How often do we suppress doubts when they arise for fear that it would make us weaker in faith?
.
Ecclesiastes assures us that a good wrestle with tough predicaments will lead us deeper into faith. So...wrestle away!!

"As Charles Spurgeon once said in a sermon, 'God does not need your strength: he has more than enough power of his own. He asks your weakness: he has none of that himself, and he is longing, therefore, to take your weakness, and use it as the instrument in his own mighty hand. Will you not yield your weakness to him, and receive his strength?' (MTP, 37:331).⠀

I write this in hopes to relieve an unreasonable burden from some, who think that suffering in a godly way means not to feel weak, or to cry. Many tears find company with the saints of God’s word, and with Jesus who once 'offered up prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death' (Hebrews 5:7).⠀

Without Christ, I know my ship would be sunk, but I am so grateful that in our weakness, we find a strong helper: 'For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need' (Hebrews 4:15–16).⠀

Suffering as a Christian certainly does not mean ignoring or downplaying the level or emotions of our suffering. We do not minimize the things that show Christ’s power — no, instead we look them straight in the eye and bring them to the throne of grace, the throne of help and healing, the throne of Jesus Christ."⠀
