"Being a pastor is a complicated calling. Pastors are often pulled in multiple directions and must ""become all things to all people"" (1 Cor. 9:22). What does the New Testament say (or not say) about the pastoral calling? And what can we learn about it from the apostle Paul? According to popular New Testament scholar Scot McKnight, pastoring must begin first and foremost with spiritual formation, which plays a vital role in the life and ministry of the pastor. As leaders, pastors both create and nurture culture in a church. The biblical vision for that culture is Christoformity, or Christlikeness. Grounding pastoral ministry in the pastoral praxis of the apostle Paul, McKnight shows that nurturing Christoformity was at the heart of the Pauline mission. The pastor's central calling, then, is to mediate Christ in everything. McKnight explores seven dimensions that illustrate this concept--friendship, siblings, generosity, storytelling, witness, subverting the world, and wisdom--as he calls pastors to be conformed to Christ and to nurture a culture of Christoformity in their churches."

Sometimes we give in to our flesh's desires. But other times we give G-d our all and feel exhausted. Join Rabbi Kevin Solomon of Congregation Beth Hallel as he takes the relatable example of falling asleep during the message to encourage us that G-d knows our heart when we give Him our all.

From Mark 16:17, we know that every believer is capable of performing signs and miracles. We cannot afford to be unaware or ignorant about it. (1 Cor 12:1 ) Operating in the spirit is compulsory not just for you but for the sake of the people around you. Healing can be an event but it can also be an environment. Some sicknesses are not merely a medical condition. Some are spiritual Eg in Matt 9: 32-33 God wants us to cultivate a healing atmosphere so we can walk in divine health. In Exodus 4:17, Moses' rod wasn't given to him by God. It was his. But by that same rod, Moses was able to perform signs. In the same way, by the spirit of God within you, you can perform signs and miracles. You can do all things by the Holy Ghost inside of you. Glory!

Today in the Word Devotional

Michelangelo’s Moses sculpture and other classical artworks often show Moses with horns. Why? Because the Hebrew words for “radiant” and “horn” look similar. The Vulgate, a fourth-century Latin translation of the Bible, rendered this word in today’s verse as “horns.” Instead of picturing Moses with a radiant face, centuries of puzzled readers pictured him with horns on his head! Moses was unaware that his face was radiant because he’d been in God’s presence (v. 29). What the Israelites saw was essentially the afterglow of God’s glory. It was so bright that they couldn’t look steadily at him, as if he were a miniature sun. God was the sun, while Moses was only the moon, reflecting God’s light. Even so, the people responded to the brightness of Moses’ face with reverent fear, as often happens in Scripture when God reveals His glory (v. 30). They were afraid even to come near. Moses wore a veil to hide the radiance when he was interacting with them but then removed it when talking to the Lord (vv. 33–35). He also wore the veil so they wouldn’t see the light fading from his face and perhaps lose respect for him or God (2 Cor. 3:13). Paul used Moses’ veil as a symbol of the Jews not understanding the purpose and spirit of the Law (2 Cor. 3:7–18). “To this day the same veil remains . . . It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts.” But in the new covenant, this veil has been removed. The difference is Christ (see October 31)! Because of Christ, while Moses’ experience was temporary, we have the permanent indwelling of the Holy Spirit. >> Because of Christ, our relationship with God is different from that of Moses. Daily we “are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory” (2 Cor. 3:18). Rejoice in this truth!

It's so easy to get caught up in wanting to band together with people who like what we like and who hate what we think we should hate.

Tell me, what do you have in your house?”“Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.”3 Elisha said, “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don't ask for just a few. 4 Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side.”5 She left him and shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. 6 When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.”But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing.7 She went and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left.” Jesus  multiplying Loaves and fishes  Mat 14:15-21 NIV  As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it's already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.” 16 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” 17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered. 18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.” 43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.

Cross TrainingFind Encouragement in the Stories of FaithRead or WatchTraining for half marathons, I realized I'm not a huge fan of running as a recreational activity. But race day is a different story! If every training run had that same sense of excitement and camaraderie with thousands of other runners, it'd be different. Running Phoenix's Rock 'n' Roll marathon, you have rock bands playing every couple miles, people giving you high-fives, and plenty of encouragement. And the difference between training and race day highlights the importance of keeping our eyes on all the faithful witnesses that went before us. We're Cross Training to develop our endurance, one of twelve marks of the Master we're working on this year. Endurance comes when we look to faithful witnesses in God's word, grow stronger in suffering, remain consistent, and bear each other's burdens. So how do the faithful figures found in Scripture stir us to endure and keep going?What You Need to KnowWhen we read about David taking his stand against Goliath (1 Sam. 17) or Esther courageously outwitting Haman (Est. 8), we find the strength to face our own Goliaths and Hamans. When Job refuses to give up, we want to see how his epic story ends (Job 42) because in his struggles, we see a little bit of our own. And when Elijah feels all the world is out to get him, and no one's on his side, we lean in to hear "the sound of a low whisper" (1 Kings 19:12) and long to know what God will speak to his lonely soul. In all these accounts about people "of whom the world was not worthy" (Heb. 11:38), we find both encouragement and a challenge to continue living by faith as they did. Because by faith, "the people of old received their commendation" (Heb. 11:2). God could've filled the Scriptures with anything, but he chose to give us a vast collection of stories about devoted people. Why has so much been written about these forerunners of faith? "For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope" (Rom. 15:4).What You Need to DoApproach your spiritual life like a marathon, not a sprint. Taking to heart the examples that went before you (good and bad!), eliminate anything that slows you down. As the conclusion of Scripture's "Hall of Faith" coaches us mid-run:"Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us" (Heb. 12:1). Don't gloss over the sins of your heroes. After all, the Bible doesn't! Recognize the weaknesses and missteps in Noah (Gen. 9:21-23), Abraham (Gen. 20), Moses (Num. 20), David (2 Sam. 11), and the rest of the "witnesses" that surround us (Heb. 12:1). When you see your own faults, take heart, knowing that God can forgive our sins (1 John 2:2) and perfect his power in our weaknesses (2 Cor. 12:9). Though we're all like jars of clay — fragile and unimpressive — he places within us a treasure that shines brighter than the sun (2 Cor. 4:6-7). So we take the baton to run the next leg of the race — joining the long line of imperfect servants giving their all to glorify a perfect God.And finally, never, ever take your eyes of our perfect forerunner, the one whose name is "Faithful and True" (Rev. 19:11). When the path is hard to see and it seems the uphill climb will never end, remember that Jesus found a way to stand in every kind of trial (Heb. 4:15) so that we can take his route and "follow in his steps" (1 Peter 2:21). Just keep running, "looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God" (Heb. 12:2). Through the WeekRead (Mon) — Matt. 5:11-12; Acts 7:2-60; Rom. 15:4-5; 1 Cor. 10:1-13; Heb. 11:1-40Reflect (Tue) — What do I need to learn from the saints of old?Request (Wed) — "Father, help us imitate faithful examples, as they imitate Christ" (cf. 1 Cor. 11:1).

Today in the Word Devotional

Have you ever wondered why we set off fireworks on the Fourth of July? The tradition goes back to the start of America’s nationhood. In 1777, one year after the Declaration of Independence was signed, the anniversary was celebrated in Philadelphia with a parade, speeches, and fireworks. Boston was the first city to declare July 4th an official holiday in 1783. Congress finally made it a national holiday in 1870. Even before it took place, the Passover was declared by God to be Month One Year One on Israel’s calendar (vv. 2, 14). The tenth day would be their Independence Day! Passover was the flip side of the tenth plague: The Egyptian firstborn would die—”judgment on all the gods of Egypt” (v. 12)—but God had determined that the Israelites would live. Because they sacrificed a lamb and put its blood on their doorposts, the angel of death would “pass over” that house and spare the family inside (vv. 7, 13). The lamb would then be roasted and served as the main dish of the Passover meal. Bread without yeast was another symbolic part of that meal (v. 15). No yeast indicated haste or hurry, that is, how quickly the Egyptians wanted them gone! The absence of yeast also came to signify holiness, purity, or consecration. Moses proclaimed Passover as a national holiday, to be celebrated in the future in the Promised Land (vv. 24–27). This declaration was an act of faith—Moses trusted completely that what God said would happen. And his obedience matched his faith. He told the elders of Israel to “go at once” to carry out the instructions (vv. 21–23). The Israelites would remember, through the ages, the mighty work of God on their behalf. That’s why Jewish people still celebrate Passover today! >> Just as the Israelites were saved by a lamb’s blood, so we are saved by the blood of Christ (1 Cor. 5:7). If you’ve never done so, we urge you to trust Him for your salvation!

Thank you Newsstand Studio at 1 Rockefeller Plaza for providing a place for me to record this episode for y'all! No more Brooklyn closet recording!!! “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”  - Philippians 4: 6 (NIV)   If you are a regular listener, you know that I have struggled with anxiety a lot over the years. I even did a whole Mental Health May series this past year (which you can check out here). Well my anxiety has reared its head again this fall. I can sometimes resent how it takes me away from the moment at hand. My invitation to myself + to you is: What if I/you/we could learn to not resent the discomfort but lean in and trust that my body is resilient. Like Glennon Doyle says, “I can do hard things,”  and I can feel uncomfortable things, pain, grief, nervousness, or anxiety and still feel safe and at home in my body. Lessons From My Therapist You may have heard this verse before: Philippians 4: 6 (NIV)   “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God”   In the King James Version, it says “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Greek “careful”: to be distracted to the point of separation What my therapist explained to me was that anxiety separates you from yourself—because it removes me from the present and gets me to obsess about the future. Out of body. Besides yourself. The goal is to get back into yourself, back in your body. Like with the addict: the moment to focus on isn't necessarily the relapse, but the runway that led them there. The 10 steps before that you took that led you down a path towards anxiety. FOR ME: not eating, well, caffeine, alone time, time with Jesus, moving my body—my body is already on high alert b/c some family stuff going on—so things that normally wouldn't trigger me are activating anxiety—so I need to be extra kind and caring of myself.    Be careful for nothing, BUT “But” is where the answer/help comes in. It's an invitation to try something else. Try these 4 things:   Prayer: In anxiety we're separate from ourselves, God, and others. Prayer reconnects you with God and it INTERRUPTS your disconnection to self. Reminds me I'm not alone and it's not all up to me. This is an ACTIVE way to take your thoughts captive: 2 Cor. 10:15 The invitation of Jesus isn't to BUCK UP + GET OVER IT: it's to let go of the back breaking load: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” - Matthew 11:28-30. The invitation of God isn't to DO more or less of anything. isn't to just NOT do something—whatever it is: anxiety, lie, gossip—no the invitation is to BE.   “Be still + know that I AM God.” - Psalm 46:10     Supplication: Emergent prayer / emergency prayer. AA 12 steps (very familiar to Phil 4:6) We admitted we were powerless over alcohol— that our lives had become unmanageable. Don't do ‘x', BUT PRAY Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore our sanity + SUPPLICATE: GOD HELP ME Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him.   Thanksgiving: GK: Thanking god for things in the past + things yet to come Fear focuses on the worst case scenario. Gratitude focuses on the reality that with God anything is possible. Gratitude reorients my heart from focusing on doom to possibility. Gratitude reminds me that God has shown up for me before + God will do it again.  HABAKKUK 3:2   Lord, I have heard of your fame;     I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day,     in our time make them known;     in wrath remember mercy.   In fear, in dread, in anxiety, in hopelessness, remember hope. Remember possibility. Remember what God did in the past and thank him for it THEN ASK HIM TO DO IT AGAIN.   Requests:  Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Emphasis on requests: a polite demand for something due to you—like when you get a reminder to pay your credit card bill. Like they ask you nicely = remind you when it's due. But it's not really a request; it's a polite demand. You have to pay the bill.  Dear God, HELP. Thank you for helping me in the past + I thank you in advance because I know you're going to help me again. That's who you are. Now please give me peace in my body.  Then the verse that follows this 4-step formula is this: “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” “Peace” here in the GREEK: to make one; whole, to be put back together.   BE CAREFUL FOR NOTHING. PRAY. ASK.  THANK. POLITELY DEMAND. PEACE—then you'll go from separation back to connection—self, god + others.    I don't know about you, but this feels like really beautiful news to me. When I'm in a moment of fear and disconnection: pause. Invite god into the moment. Ask for help. Thank for the past and future. Politely demand! PEACE. Peace is your portion. Peace is your legacy. Even right now, I speak peace over your body, mind, soul, spirit.

The apostle Paul warns the ancient Corinthians that Satan is cunning and is always subtly working to lead our minds astray from our sincere devotion to Christ (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Corinthians%2011%3A3&version=NIV (2 Cor 11:3)). It's easy to think we're doing fine because we believe true things and do good things, unaware that we've let our minds be led astray from our devotion to seek and draw near to Christ. In other words, to actually pray instead of just believe. It's the simplest thing for us to do that would significantly affect our lives for the better. Yet somehow it's the easiest for us to forget. The Serpent's cunning, no doubt. Psalm 116 is a great prayer for us to draw near to Christ in a more sincere way. This Psalm is filled with the words “I” “me” and “my” in a way that helps us get immediately personal with God. We'll look at the first nine verses in this first of a two-part episode. Psalm 116:1–9 ESV 1 I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy.  2 Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.  3 The snares of death encompassed me; the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me; I suffered distress and anguish.  4 Then I called on the name of the LORD: “O LORD, I pray, deliver my soul!”  5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; our God is merciful. 6 The LORD preserves the simple; when I was brought low, he saved me. 7 Return, O my soul, to your rest; for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.  8 For you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling;  9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

Cross TrainingManage God's Blessings WellRead or WatchI have some friends who run a supermarket in the Seattle area, and the care they put into managing their company has taught me a lot about work and life. Why do they bring such love and thought to each aspect of their business? Well, they call it stewardship. It's a family business that they hope will thrive many generations into the future. They aren't permanent owners, just caretakers of their grandchildren's heritage. And when we open the Scriptures, we discover that we're all just caretakers of God's blessings.We're Cross Training to develop our fruitfulness, one of twelve marks of the Master we're working on this year. Fruitfulness comes when we're accountable, full of zeal, diligent workers, and good stewards of our blessings. So when we accept our role as stewards, how does that change our relationships?What You Need to KnowTo steward is to manage something that doesn't belong to you faithfully. As Jesus asks, "Who then is the faithful and wise manager (KJV: "steward"), whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time?" (Luke 12:42). The steward must answer for his choices, for "it is required of stewards that they be found faithful" (1 Cor. 4:2). Humans were given dominion over the world to enjoy and subdue (Gen. 1:26-28). When God placed Adam in the garden of Eden in Genesis 2, he assigned him "to work it and to keep it" (Gen. 2:15). Even paradise was a blessing to steward. All that we have is a stewardship, since "the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof" (1 Cor. 10:26). We even steward our bodies: "You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body" (1 Cor. 6:19-20). And when we realize none of it belongs to us, it changes how we live. What You Need to DoAim to give more than you get, to produce meaningful fruit from all the rich resources the Lord pours into your life. In Jesus' parable about the fruitless fig tree, the landowner asks, "Why should it use up the ground?*" (Luke 13:7). The vinedresser, though, requests permission to give it more resources. He says, "let it alone this year ... until I dig around it and put on manure. Then if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down" (Luke 13:8-9). In other words, as the Lord pours blessings down, we have a purpose beyond merely enjoying them. He wants us to use them, doing good works (Eph. 2:10) and sharing with others (1 Tim. 6:17-19). Steward your energy, your money, your relationships, and your time (Eph. 5:16-17). How can you produce the most fruit for the kingdom?Make financial choices as a money manager for the Lord. God wants us to enjoy his blessings (Eccl. 3:12-13; 1 Tim. 4:3-5). And what you have is yours in that you have the authority right now over how to use it (Acts 5:4). Yet ultimately, everything is the Lord's, who loves us and provides for us (Deut. 10:14). Stewarding money doesn't mean "making lots of money for myself." It means making sound investments for the master and his kingdom. You could be a pro at money management — living within your means and growing your portfolio — and yet a terrible steward. Like the rich man in Jesus' story that God called a "fool" at his death, we may have stored up lots of money, but are we "rich toward God" (Luke 12:16-21)?Look around your relationships and see at gifts you've been entrusted with, faithfully tending to them as stewardships. The friend who trusts you with their secret wounds (Prov. 17:9, 17), the husband or wife that you uniquely get to call "yours" (Song 2:16), and the children God fills your quiver with so you can aim to send them into the world straight and true (Psalm 127:1-5). Those we love are not ours to own, but they pass through our lives as both a gift and an opportunity to bless them on their way, directing them to the true lover of their soul (John 15:13). Through the WeekRead (Mon) — Luke 19:11-27; Gen. 1:26-31; Matt. 24:44-51; 1 Peter 4:9-11; Luke 16:1-13Reflect (Tue) — Do I consider myself the owner or the servant manager of "my possessions"?Request (Wed) — "Lord, give me wisdom for the care of all you entrust to me" (cf. Matt. 24:45). Respond (Thu) — Devote a few extra dollars and a few extra minutes growing "kingdom" fruit in someone today. Reach Out (Fri) — What does fruitfulness look like to you, in real, everyday life?Support the Show

Saint of the Day

"Our holy Father Ammon's parents died in his childhood. He was brought up by an uncle, who made him marry when he was still very young. On the night of his wedding, as soon as he and his wife retired to the bridal chamber, Ammon took up the holy Scriptures and read the passage in the Epistle to the Corinthians where the Apostle speaks of the disadvantages of marriage because of all the troubles and cares that come with it, while virgins consecrated to the Lord can devote themselves without distraction to prayer and to spiritual labour. Both spouses took the following words literally: From now on, let those who have wives be as though they had none... and those who deal with the world, as though they had no dealings with it (1 Cor. 7:29,31). They decided to remain in their virginity and to retire together to a desert place where they could give themselves over to prayer and fasting. They set out for the mountain of Nitria, some way from Alexandria, and settled in a little hut there. But, living together as man and woman, they soon realized the inexpedience of tempting nature head-on and of provoking the attacks of demons. They parted company, therefore, each to live separately in ascesis. Ammon never used wine or oil but lived only on dry bread that he ate every two or three days.   "His manner of life was pleasing to the Lord, and a great many brethren who wanted to embrace the monastic life soon came to join him. When a new aspirant arrived, Ammon would immediately let him have his own cell with everything in it, and the other brethren would secretly bring provisions to the newcomer or whatever else might be useful. This showed that fraternal love was first among the laws observed in this ever-growing brotherhood. In a few years, under the direction of Ammon, the desert of Nitria was transformed into a veritable city. Some of the brethren now wanted to build their cells at a distance where they could live in greater solitude, so when one day Saint Antony the Great came to visit him, Abba Ammon asked his advice about the place to choose. At the ninth hour, after taking a scanty meal together, they walked in the desert until sunset, when they set up a cross at the place they had reached, so that those who wanted to could build their cells there with the blessing of the two Elders. 'In this way,' Abba Antony said, 'the brethren coming from Nitria, after a meal at the ninth hour, to see those who are here, will meet them at this moment. And if those who leave here to go to Nitria do the same, they will not lose their hesychia (stillness).' This was how the desert of Kellia ('the Cells') came to be established almost twelve miles from Nitria. More than six hundred monks were soon living there, each in his own cell.   "Saint Ammon and Saint Antony were united in a deep spiritual friendship. When Abba Ammon gave up his soul in peace to the Lord at Nitria, Antony, far away on his mountain, broke off the conversation he was having with some monks and, in ecstasy, saw the soul of Ammon going up to Heaven accompanied by the joyful hymns of a multitude of angels. Among other words inspired by the Holy Spirit, Saint Ammon said, 'Bear with everyone as God bears with you'." (Synaxarion)

WHO ARE WE? • We are a group of people who are committed to living the grace life as set forth by the apostle of the Gentiles, the Apostle Paul. • We come together to study our Bibles, and yes, we believe we have God's perfect Word in the King James Bible. It and it alone is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice! • We do not come together and study our Bibles for the intent of being smarter than others. We understand that knowledge for the sake of knowledge is purely vain and serves no Godly purpose. • We do come together and study our Bibles for the intent of knowing our Lord Jesus Christ and the power of His resurrection. (Philippians 3:10) • We do come together and study our Bibles to understand that we have been crucified with Christ; nevertheless we live; yet not us, but Christ liveth in us: and the life which we now live in the flesh, we live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved us and gave himself for us. (Galatians 2:20) • We do come together and study our Bibles to understand that because Jesus Christ shed His blood for us and we should not live for ourselves but for Him, who died for us and rose again. (2 Cor. 5:15) • We do not claim to have attained to these lofty goals, but we press toward the mark of the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Pastor Brad Franklin talks about ways to keep on the path in today's message.Watch this episode on our YouTube channel:https://youtu.be/o4j9AMIH6p4Scripture references:James 1: 2-5“2 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. 3 For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. 4 So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. 5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.” 2 Cor 4: 16-18“16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don't look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever."

“One more thing the angels do in fulfilling God's purposes is that they are constantly and directly glorifying God.” - Pastor Jeff CranstonHello Kitchen Table Theology Family!  In this episode, Pastor Jeff and Jen Denton continue their discussion on Angelology. So far in this series, we've discussed what angels are and today we talk about what angels do. [00:01] What is the Purpose of Angels Angels show the greatness of God's love and plan for usNowhere in Scripture does it say that angels are made in God's image like man God gives us authority over angels (Heb 2:7)We are to judge angels (1 Cor 6:3) Angels serve us (Heb 1:14) [06:34] The Differences Between Angels and ManMan has the ability to bear children and those children bear upon themselves the image of God God prepared a plan for salvation when man sinned (2 Peter 2:4)Angels are genderless Angels remind us that the unseen world is realSpecific purposes and plans that angels have fulfilled or will fulfill Pour out bowls of God's wrath on the earth (Rev 16) Patrol the earth as God's representatives Carry out war against demonic forces  [17:31]  Last Key Things to Note Angels' purpose is to constantly and directly glorify God (Psalm 103)God's sovereign plan for the church was displayed before the angels and demons. (Eph 3:10)A woman should have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angelsAngels witness the lives of Christians and glorify God for our worship and obedience (1 Cor 11:10) [25:57] Final Thoughts    A summary of what we've discussed Connect with us!  Key Quotes“Nowhere in Scripture are we ever told that angels are made in God's image as we have been… It seems fair to conclude that [man] is more like God than the angels are.”- Pastor Jeff Cranston“Angels show the greatness of God's love and plan for us. That's one of their purposes.” - Pastor Jeff Cranston Resources MentionedSystematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine by Wayne GrudemJoin the ConversationWe love your feedback!
