Sermons tagged #Summarize
Jesus taught us the top priority – which is to love God, love others – and then Jesus died and rose again to cleanse us for breaking it, and to equip us to keep it more and more. One more question – this one regarding the most important command. (v.28) The most important answer about the most important command. (v.29-31) The surprising response, the inviting verdict, and the silencing of questions. (v.32-34) How can we know which things are top priority? How did God summarize His law? Deut. 5:1-21 and 6:4-5 How much are we supposed to love God? 1 John 4:10 What is top priority to you? Rom. 12:1-2, Phl. 2:3-5
Our sermon today is going to be a little different. We are not at a funeral and yet it feels like one. By no means are we trying to be morbid but how often do we think about death and not really not even death but our own life story? One day someone is going to need to summarize our life story into a few short sentences or perhaps into a eulogy will there be enough have given to them to work with? Will people be able to remember us the way we would like or will other things have to be said? Our reputation may precede us but it will also outlive us.
CHARLES HADDON SPURGEON ON READING 'As the apostle says to Timothy, so also he says to everyone, 'Give yourself to reading.' He who will not use the thoughts of other men's brains proves that he has no brains of his own. You need to read. Renounce as much as you will all light literature, but study as much as possible sound theological works, especially the Puritanic writers, and expositions of the Bible. The best way for you to spend your leisure is to be either reading or praying.'
