Charles Spurgeon’s Sunday night thoughts.

Charles Spurgeon

We started a five-week series on Philippians today.  I’ll be honest, when I started at The Bridge I made myself preach through books of the Bible but really thought that the topical series (Vintage Church, DNA, Critical Questions, House Rules) were more fun.  Now, it’s the opposite.  I can’t wait to get to the next exegetical series when we’re in between them.

Thoughts from today…

  • You could probably tell God BURDENED me with today’s sermon through the whole week.  I LOVE when “his word is in my heart as a fire in my bones.”
  • Missional living: realizing that the mission field isn’t just across the ocean but across your street and that the word “Christian” is synonymous with the word “missionary”.
  • Paul was chained to a jail cell and engaged the guards missionally. All of us are chained to something (a desk, a phone, 5 kids, a classroom) and bear the calling to engage wherever we are missionally.
  • In the words of Charles Spurgeon (dead guy of the week), every person who calls themselves a Christian is either a missionary or an impostor.
  • The ONLY way you can fail in evangelism is not to speak.  The gospel is powerful and doesn’t need your help.
  • A few people asked for a repeat of the John Piper quote that reflected the thoughts of Philippians 1:18-30.  “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.”
  • If there are even a handful of men and women in The Bridge who will chase satisfaction in Christ above anything else, it will turn Spring Hill upside down.
