Each person is constantly interpreting their world through a grid, through a specific lens. Kevin DeYoung contrasts viewing life through the lens of fairness contra the glasses of grace. Taking us to the Parable of the Vineyard Laborers in Matthew 20, Kevin takes the three questions at the end of Jesus' famous parable to help expose how often the pastor's heart can give into viewing life through the lens of fairness rather than the glasses of grace.

Our word choices can engender strife and dissension, or they can encourage, nourish, and heal those on the receiving end of our communication. The books of James and Proverbs help us to think about our speech from three perspectives: words to harm, words to help, and words to hide behind.

scripture Philippians 4:4-9

type Sermon
id 2925

A mind that is filled with thinking on what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy will have little time for anxiety-producing, peace-disturbing, joy-destroying thoughts. Properly focusing our minds not only glorifies God, but strengthens our ability to be able to persuade others concerning the truth of the Gospel.

When hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes or other disasters occur, we tend to think that God has fallen asleep on the job. Why would He let something like this happen? This timeless question finds its answer in God's providential and loving care. This is a God who plants His footsteps in the sea and the winds and the waves obey Him. This message was given in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, but an understanding that God has loving reasons for all such events helps us rise above the storm, setting our minds and hearts on solid ground.

What does it mean to have faith? Is it merely an intellectual acknowledgment to the claims of Jesus? Alistair explains that faith is more than having the facts in our head; faith is a whole-hearted trust in the work of Christ alone for our acceptance before a Holy God. Evidence of this kind of trust is displayed by a growing willingness to obey His commands.

Young men and women entering college or taking their first steps out into the world will quickly find their faith put to the test. Contemporary influences encourage us to “live for the moment” and to “seize the day” without regard for eternal consequences. The pressure imposed by society to thrive in a competitive world can breed broken friendships, disappointments, and lure young adults away from their devotion to Christ. Teaching from selected Scripture including Psalms, Proverbs, Timothy and James, Alistair Begg speaks to college student audiences about holding firm to Christian convictions. Lessons For Life offers practical, essential teaching on ...

Contemporary influences encourage us to “live for the moment” without regard for eternal consequences. This kind of thinking is merely an illusion. The psalmist teaches us to “number our days aright” and to be mindful of using our time to gain a heart of wisdom. Speaking to a college student audience, Alistair Begg cautions against squandering opportunities and instead, remaining attentive to the ultimate relationship that exists between our mortality and sin.
