I am trying something new.  I created a SoundCloud account and will occasionally upload sermon files.

Call this an “audio blog.”

Lessons from Nabad and Abihu

Yesterday’s sermon was from the chronological reading we are doing as a congregation at Central. There were three main incidentlessons that we learned from Nadab and Abihu and their offering in Leviticus 10.  Here are those three lessons.

Lesson One: The Worship of God

  • Approach God in Worship Doing only what He Commands.
    • This regards God as holy and honored.
  • We are presumptuous if we think we know what God wants.
    • Isa 55:8-9
    • 1Co 2:11
  • The Regulative Principle of Worship: 1689 London Baptist Confession:

“But the acceptable way of worshipping the true God, is instituted by Himself, and so limited by His own revealed will, that He may not be worshipped according to the imaginations and devices of men, nor the suggestions of Satan, under any visible representations, or any other way not prescribed in the Holy Scriptures.”

  • This principle apply to our singing, the Lord’s Supper, and all of worship.

Lesson Two: Approach God with Respect

  • Not only respect His commands (wishes, desires)
    • But also with Reverence: Lev 10:3
    • Consideration for Who God is:
      • Creator
      • Provider
      • Savior
  • We cannot approach God flippantly.
    • Respect impacts my
      • Attitude toward and in worship
      • Attendance and Attention in worship
      • Activity in worship

Lesson Three: The Priority of God in my Life

  • Mat 6:33
  • Mat 10:34-39
  • Col 3:1-4
  • God and His Will come first!

Seven Greatest Things

Flipping through a file marked “Misc. Articles” I found the following outline.

Original Outline - Gus Nichols?

Original Outline – Gus Nichols?

By the type font, I think it is from Gus Nichols who lived in worked in the county I now live in. If I were preaching it this Sunday, I might start by mentioning the Seven Wonders of the World or listing seven of the greatest technological achievements or devices.  Then flow into the idea of the  seven things that are really the greatest things known to man.

  1. The Greatest Being – God
  2. The Greatest Gift – Jesus Christ, God’s Son
  3. The Greatest Book – The Bible
  4. The Greatest Command – Love
  5. The Greatest Possession – Your Soul
  6. The Greatest Institution (Organism – my edit) – The Church
  7. The Greatest Place (Reward – my edit) – Heaven

I may move this to the front of my sermons to borrow steal folder.
