PIPER FRIDAY – Why Must We Be Born Again?

It has become something of a habit for me to watch a Piper sermon as part of the preparation of my heart to preach. I don't mean the preparation of my sermon material; rather I mean the preparation of my heart. Getting my heart into the right place to preach is a bigger challenge for me than writing a good set of notes. Piper stirs my heart in ways no one else I listen to does—in order that I should be grateful to God and sensitive to other people. He cares for his listeners and is passionate … [Read more...]

Death By Love – Pastoral Application of the Atonement by Driscoll and Breshears

I want to introduce you to a very unusual book by Mark Driscoll and his writing buddy and professor, Gerry Breshears. I would go so far as to say that this is a unique book in that I have never seen anything quite like it. If their first book together, Vintage Jesus, was a light cheerful book that offended some by its use of humor and at times edgy topics for illustrations, this new book by these two men is more of a grungy, almost dark book. The video over at the ReLit site leaves you in no … [Read more...]

Piper on the New Birth

Even my regular readers may not remember that some time ago I decided I wanted to work my way through John Piper's sermons on the new birth. I know it has been awhile since I mentioned this, but I don't want to rush this process, and let's just say I'vebeen busy with other things. So far I have shared my quotes and thoughts from the first and second sermons.Watching this third video, it was very refreshing to see Piper emphasize that the new birth really does change us. It was a very helpful … [Read more...]

SERMON – A Song Of Hope – Psalm 121

On the 24th of August, I preached a sermon at Jubilee during our summer series on some famous psalms. I took Psalm 121, which served as a starting point for me to share some of the most important planks of my personal doctrinal framework—a framework that has sustained me through hard times.As blogging around here at least begins to return to normal—if there is such a thing at adrianwarnock.com—I thought I'd share both the audio to download and a condensed version of the message below. You … [Read more...]

TOAM08 – David Devenish – A Call to the Nations (Jeremiah 1)

I was getting tired last night, so I devoted more of my attention to being personally impacted by this message and less to typing. Thus, these notes will probably be shorter than some of the other sessions, which is probably just as well!Last night's main session was taken by David Devenish. Dave is based in Woodside Church, Bedford, UK. He is working with many churches in Russia and the Ukraine, and preparing churches and individuals for world mission. He has written the books, Setting People … [Read more...]

TOAM08 – Mark Driscoll: Doctrine of the Holy Spirit in Luke and Acts

Terry introduced Mark by mentioning his currently available books, all of which he highly recommended. You can buy these from the Newfrontiers resources page. It was nice to see my pastor, Tope Koleoso, on the stage praying for Mark just before he began preaching. It was interesting that just a couple of weeks ago Tope also spoke on being missional in a talk that was impacting to me.In case anyone hasn’t been reading blogs for the past two years, Mark Driscoll founded Mars Hill Church in … [Read more...]
