Biblical Eldership: The first burst!!

bursts

Perhaps no issue is as frustrating in a local church as leadership. Who really is in charge? Who really has spiritual authority? Does the New Testament give us any clarity or are some people correct that the New Testament is silent or at best unclear? Grace Bible Institute will present its first “Burst,” a short min-course that will examine every single New Testament usage of the terms that denote spiritual authority in the local church.

Sign up here for this intense 2 week course that begins April 18. Hope to see you!

 

 

 

Spurgeon on the New Year

In this evening’s Morning and Evening Charles Haddon Spurgeon spoke words of encouragement for the coming year:

“Do not men of grace find their Lord to be camphire and spikenard, calamus and cinnamon even now, and what better fragrance have they in heaven itself? We will be glad and rejoice IN THEE. That last word is the meat in the dish, the kernel of the nut, the soul of the text. What heavens are laid up in Jesus! What rivers of infinite bliss have their source, ay, and every drop of their fulness in Him! Since, O sweet Lord Jesus, Thou art the present portion of Thy people, favour us this year with such a sense of Thy preciousness, that from its first to its last day we may be glad and rejoice in Thee. Let January open with joy in the Lord, and December close with gladness in Jesus.”
