Compelled to Share

Dr. Tim Beougher, dean of the SBTS school of evangelism and missions, preached an challenging message in chapel today from 1 Cor. 9:16-23. No, this wasn't a message on contextualization, which was very refreshing! I have so often heard this text used (and misused) in this way that I'd missed what it is actually about: Paul's passion for seeing others won to faith in Christ and his determination to not live for his own rights but to live for the sake of the Gospel!

Pastor Jim preached another convicting sermon this past Lord's Day on obeying God rather than men (Acts 5:27-29). You can listen to it here. Most convicting to me was the truth that the issue for most of us is not obeying God over against the voice of ungodly national leaders but obeying God over against our own sinful flesh!
