Is The Bible Relevant?

Last Sunday (14/08/2011) we were privileged to hear preaching of the highest order. In fact, as I’ve been thinking about the sermon over the week, the more convinced I am that this particular sermon would act as a model for up and coming ministers, including those studying at seminary. Not only that, but it would also be of benefit to more experienced ministers. Yes, it was that good. Let’s just say I do not want to elevate the man as it was evident the sermon was blessed of God and Pastor being the man he is would merely point away from himself and to the blessing of God upon it.

The Text of the sermon was Genesis 3:9 ‘But the LORD God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”‘. The particular words Pastor concentrated on were the words directed to Adam ‘where are you’.

The ministry was relevant and contemporary but above all Biblical, exemplifying what it is to expound the text. This sermon is Gospel ministry at it’s best and what people today within and outside the church need to hear. Culturally the sermon is set in the context of recent Riots and looting in the UK.

  1. I agree with most of the sermon. I have listen from start to end and all I can do is agreed.
    Fear of God, Shame, Guilty, prophets is savior is all the essential of Abraham Religion.
    The concept of “Where are you”, even this thing always being hear at mosque, but this is my first time I heard from Christian’s preacher.

    1. Greetings Hifzan, I’ve been on holiday and the internet was not very good.

      In the sermon you listened to the Christian answer to the wrong things in the world and in us is clearly given. But in just a few words let me say this: The answer has to come from outside of ourselves. The Christian Gospel is all about what God has provided (an answer to sin) not what we can do to earn His favour. So, it’s NOT what we do, it’s what God in Jesus Christ has done.

      BTW. I’ve started reading a book by a Muslim scholar – posted the first blog on this today.
