SCBC Lord’s day #42

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil.

The Administration of the Ordinances

  • The framers of the confession avoided clericalism (only ordained ministers can administer) and extreme congregationalism (anyone can administer the ordinances.
  • The overseers are entrusted to govern the administration of the ordinances (Hebrews 13:7, Mateo 28:19, 1 Cor.4:1)
  • Note: There is flexibility in administering the ordinances under LBCF than in WCF and Puritans.

SCBC Morning Message: Expository Series on the Book of Romans (Ptr. jeremiah)

Romans 10:8-20: Jesus is Lord

  1. The Lordship of Christ
  2. The Resurrection of Christ

Our faith is the root and our confession is the fruit. Confession is not just by mouth, confession is by our whole being

SCBC Pulpit
Early Christians were martyred because of their confession that 'Jesus is Lord' because they refused to acknowledge Caesar is Lord. There is a cost in confessing Jesus as Lord. 

SCBC Afternoon Message: Expository series on the book of Hebrews (Bro. Ghan)

Hebrews 1:8-9: The Eternal and Righteous King

  1. An Eternal King ruling eternal kingdom
  2. A Righteous King ruling righteous kingdom

Christ Kingdom is present. He is reigning now as the Eternal and righteous King.

SCBC Pulpit

OFW Message: Expository series on the book of galatians (Ptr. jeremiah)

Galatians 5:24-25: Walking by the Spirit

  1. What does it mean to “walk in the Spirit?”
  2. What does it mean to “be led by Spirit?”
To walk in the Spirit is to be led by the Spirit. There's a struggle between the flesh and the spirit.
There is a warfare. Christian still struggles against flesh. 

To be led by the Spirit means that we are willing to be ruled by the Spirit in all things. It is a life of absolute submission. 

Blessed Lord’s Day!
