4.27.08 sermons at gbcvic

Today marks a new era in our church… we are fully digital in our recording. Hopefully this will make for better quality in the sound. We are also able to put the messages up much quicker than before. Our afternoon service let out just over an hour ago, and our messages are on the web. Now for a nap!

But first, here are our summaries:

The Preacher and his Preaching (Rm 1.1-17 review)

Having come to the end of Rm 1.17, we gave this morning to review of our work through Romans this far. Six months of preaching, 24 messages, and 17 verses…

The central idea of this message is that you must accept the credentials and message of the apostle Paul in order to have the gospel at all. Paul introduces himself, his plan, and his message in these verses. For the content to benefit the Romans (or any one) in any way, the whole must be accepted by repentant faith.

The Existence & Creation of Angels

In which we continue our look at Angelology, concluding last week’s study on the existence of angels and also discussing the creation of angels.

Prayers of Discipleship  (Lk 9.28)

Our survey of the Lord’s teaching on prayer brings us to the Transfiguration. Luke tells us Jesus prayed as he was transfigured. The purpose of this prayer was a matter of training for the disciples, correcting their misapprehension of his new teaching concerning his death, burial, and resurrection. Our prayers are likewise a means of discipleship, as praying according to the Scriptures we are drawn closer to heaven and heaven is drawn closer to us.



  1. Glad to hear about the new era in gbcvic recording tech… I listened to the first Rom 1:17 sermon and the sermon on prayer before meals this Sunday morning in the car and had a little trouble hearing it above the road noise…

    Hope the new recording capabilities resolve that issue.

  2. Hi Buddy, let me know how this week’s messages sound… We can increase the volume of the recorded file, but quality does suffer when you do that.


  3. I expect they will be… it might be a while before I get caught up to the current week though :)

    I’ll let you know how things change whenever I get there.
