Weekend Listening

This weekend, the Lord granted me the great privilege of listening to four wonderful expositions of His word. I am thankful for the word that was opened and blessed my soul!

A New Identity (John 1:1-18)
John Folmar is a dear brother and friend who grew up in a small town just minutes from my small town. We didn't know each other while growing up. We met about 4-5 years ago at CHBC where we both served as elders and staff. John is the faithful pastor at United Christian Church of Dubai. He's an exceptionally clear and penetrating preacher.

Adoption (Galatians 4:1-7)
C.J. Mahaney meditating on the doctrine of adoption while guest preaching at CHBC. Following Packer, C.J. argues that our adoption in Christ is the best way to define what it means to be a Christian.

Conversion to Christ: The Making of a Christian Hedonist (Matthew 13:44-46)
John Piper in 1983 meditating on the major theme of his ministry.

The Kingdom of Heaven Is a Treasure (Matthew 13:44)
John Piper 22 years later (2005) exhorting us to make Christ our Treasure.
