  • Notes from Sunday – 4/15/12
  • Another good day of worship today at Shiloh.

    I finally finished my lesson today on the sovereignty of God in my Bible Study Fellowship class. I have enjoyed teaching on this great subject.

    I am grateful for all of our guests who joined us in worship today.

    Praise God for those who were baptized as followers of Christ today

    I sung “Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior” before I preached this morning. Both services!

    I preached from 1 John 2:15-17 about “A Love That Hates.”

    Sermon Point: Children of God must not and should not love the world.

    Sermon Outline:

    I. You must not love the world (2:15a).

    II. You should not love the world (2:15b-17).

    There are three reasons why we should not love the world.

    A. The love of the world is mutually exclusive (v. 15b).

    B. The nature of the world is self-centered (v. 16).

    C. The end of the world is coming soon (v. 17).

    1 John 2:15-17 is a hard word. But I really enjoyed studying it and preaching it today. It is one of the great texts of 1 John.

    Next week’s sermon: “A Warning Against Spiritual Deception” (1 John 2:18-27)

    My Miami Heat handedly defeated the New York Nicks today. They also won the Southeast Title. On of many more this season, I trust.

    One hundred years ago today, the RMS Titanic drowned in the Atlantic Ocean.

    I am praying for the children and young people who will be taking the FCAT tests this week. May the Lord grant them focus, diligence, and success.

    I am scheduled to preach for Dr. Kerry Wesley at the Antioch Fellowship Baptist Church in Dallas for the next several days. Pray for me.
