I love the doctrine of Redemption.  It is a beautiful imagery of what Christ has done on the Cross to save us.

Here’s John MacArthur’s recent sermon on the Infinite Value of Redemption from Peter’s epistles.

Have a blessed Lord’s Day.

If you are on Twitter you might notice the hashtag “#keeplexihome.”  There’s a petition on Change.org with the following description:

There is a 6 year old little girl who is going to be ripped away from the only family that she has ever known. Her name is Lexi. The first year of her life she moved from foster placement to foster placement. Lexi has been with a loving, stable family for nearly five years and is thriving and a happy, healthy little girl. To Lexi this family is her everything – her mommy, daddy and brother and sisters. Unfortunately, since Lexi is 1.5% Choctaw, the state of California and LA County have allowed the Indian Child Welfare Law to devastate this family and will be pulling Lexi from her Mommy and Daddy on Sunday to move her to Utah to live with a non-blood related family who aren’t even members of the tribe. I’m pleading with you to please sign our petition & pass this around to everyone you know. LA County & California need to know that Lexi’s rights, stability and permanence matter!

At this very moment on Monday morning the California Supreme Court is hearing this case and I’m praying for God’s mercy upon the girl and the family.  If you are led to, please pray as well for God’s mercy with the magistrates.

The family attends Grace Community Church and even their head pastor John MacArthur has tweeted about this.

There’s a lot to the case but here in this post I want to focus on the folly of contemporary racial laws.

Shepherds conference assembly

I normally don’t like attending conferences as a Pastor (there’s too many out there).  But the one conference I look forward to as a Pastor is the Shepherd’s Conference.  It is a refreshing time for me as a Pastor to hear biblical preaching (rare in our day today in pulpits of many churches), browse through lots of books, get free books from the Conference, enjoy good food and awesome fellowship.  This year’s conference is on March 9-13.

As I’m looking forward to the conference where thousands of biblical preachers and pastors all over the US and the world head towards Los Angeles, I was also looking back at the last eight years attending Shepherd’s and asking myself, “Of all the sermons at the Shepherd’s Conference what were the most memorable messages?”  

I know there’s a segment of “silent” readers of this blog who attend the conference every year who never comment, so here’s a good time to make your first comment and share your thoughts.

 

Here are the two messages that stood out to me:

Standing Strong How to Resist the Enemy of Your Soul John MacArthur

John MacArthur’s book “Standing Strong: How to Resist the Enemy of Your Soul” is available for free on Kindle for a limited time if you click HERE.

Here’s the book description from Amazon:

Spiritual warfare is a divisive subject for today’s church. Some Christians focus solely on the immediate world around them, living as if there’s no spiritual opposition to God’s people and His kingdom. Others take an aggressive stance, where confronting the enemy becomes a constant pursuit in their lives.
John MacArthur believes the truth is found between these extremes. Standing Strong offers a balanced, biblically sound approach to spiritual warfare in the life of a believer. A trusted and renowned pastor and author, MacArthur examines key scriptures to debunk modern fallacies, define true spiritual warfare, and share what that looks like for believers today. Throughout, you’ll be encouraged and equipped to stand strong in the face of every spiritual challenge.

Standing Strong includes a guide for both personal and group study, which features discovery questions, suggestions for prayer, and activities, all designed to connect life-changing truths with everyday living.

Enjoy!
