Trial: Temptation from Hypocrisy

Two Faced

Through the new birth in Christ we are called to love one another as a testimony to the love and grace of God. When we fail to live this way, our lives preach a false gospel. In the fifth sermon of the Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series, Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church looks at 1 Peter 1:22-2:3 and asks the questions “Are you a Christian and what does it mean to live a genuine and authentic Christian life?”

We would love for you to come join us Friday, February 20th, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for the fifth message in Mars Hill Church‘s Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series, “Temptation from Hypocrisy.” Dinner begins at 6:00, teaching begins around 7:00. Childcare will be available.

Hope to have you with us on Friday night in Ferndale!

Trial: Temptation From Sin

In the fourth sermon of the Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series, Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church asks the question “Where have you placed your hope?” 1 Peter 1:13-21 roots our hope in the grace given by Jesus, calling us to lives of obedience and bringing our faith to life in Him. We will also look at six practical areas where hope can be cultivated in resistance to the temptation to sin.

We would love for you to come join us Friday, February 13th, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for the fourth message in Mars Hill Church’s Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series, “Temptation from Sin.” Dinner begins at 6:00, teaching begins around 7:00.

Again, please do your best to get there as early as possible so we can enjoy your company. Thanks everyone!

Books on joy in the midst of suffering

Last week, Pastor Mark spent alot of time talking about the deep joy that can be experienced by Christians, even in the midst of great trial and pain. One man that communicated those truths very well was Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981), a Welsh pastor and author.  Below are two of his books on the subject of the unspeakable joy spoken of in 1 Peter 1:8.

Spiritual Depressions: It’s Causes & Cure– This book is deeply significant in my life and I am sure that I will return to it many times.

This enduring collection of twenty-one sermons by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, each originally delivered at Westminster Chapel in London, carefully and compassionately analyzes an undeniable feature of modern society from which Christians have not escaped—spiritual depression.

“Christian people,” writes Lloyd-Jones, “too often seem to be perpetually in the doldrums and too often give this appearance of unhappiness and of lack of freedom and absence of joy. There is no question at all but that this is the main reason why large numbers of people have ceased to be interested in Christianity.”

.

Joy Unspeakable– Martyn Lloyd-Jones explores the assertion of John the Baptist that Jeus would baptize with the Holy Spirit. The result is a classic call to submit afresh to the Spirit for power, purity and assurance, while keeping our heads in the face of pitfalls that might distract or ensnare us.

ntwordled1

We would love for you to come join us Friday, February 6th, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for the third message in Mars Hill Church‘s Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series, “Trial and Scripture.” What is the Bible? How should it be used? Is it true? In this sermon, Pastor Mark Driscoll answers these and many other questions.

Dinner begins at 6:00, teaching and discussion begins around 7:00. Childcare will be available. As I mentioned last week, we are really going to try and get started as close to 7 as we can, as that allows for more discussion/prayer time together. Please do your best to get there as early as possible. Thank you!

So bring your family, bring your friends, bring your neighbors, bring your coworkers, as we seek to grow together into a Jesus-loving community of people on Friday nights in Ferndale
