Glory, Majesty, Dominion, and Authority Keep Us Safe For Everlasting Joy

This is the ninth and final post with my sermon notes from the Together for the Gospel Conference (T4G) that was held from April 10-12 in Louisville, KY. To see my other sermon notes from T4G, click here

Speaker: John Piper                                        Key text: Jude 1:24-25

Listen to the full sermon: Audio || Video

This passage in Jude is a doxology. Doxology means declaring the attributes of God which make God’s actions real. God keeps Christians from stumbling, presents them blameless, and gives them joy.

As a Christian, if my steadfastness in the faith depends on me, I wouldn’t be a Christian still. Jude is amazed at what it takes to keep Christians saved. God’s power and force can’t be quantified. God’s glory, majesty, dominion, and authority keep all things in being.  Read more of this post

Speaker: Matt Chandler                                          Key text: Revelation 21

Hope is necessary for all Christians.

The First Fruits of Hope

The firstfruits of hope have already been sown. Jesus came, died in my place, and rose from the dead to show that my bill is paid. God doesn’t have to invade and own Christians, but he does. There is hope in that. As Graeme Goldsworthy put it, “Hope without a time of fulfillment is delusional.” The gospel will reek of death to some if Christians proclaim truth to its fullness. The Spirit doesn’t lead where the Spirit won’t empower. Sound doctrine without a love for Jesus ceases to be sound doctrine.   Read more of this post

The Underestimated God: God’s Ruthless, Compassionate Grace in the Pursuit of His Own Glory and His Ministers’ Joy

As Christians, there are things we can learn from our disappointment. If we study our disappointments, we’ll find out what we really love, believe, and treasure. When Christians are discouraged, we’re tempted to forget that God is God and God is good.  Read more of this post

Divine Sovereignty: The Fuel of Death-Defying Missions

Speaker: David Platt                                           Key text: Revelation 5:1-14

Listen to the full sermon: Audio || Video

A high view of God’s sovereignty fuels death-defying devotion to global missions. Local ministry and missions are totally necessary, but global missions are tragically neglected. Confidence in God’s sovereignty makes missions a privilege and responsibility for believers.      Read more of this post

Spirit-Powered, Gospel-Driven, Faith-Fueled Effort

Speaker: Kevin DeYoung                                           Key text: 1 Corinthians 15:10

Listen to the full sermon: Audio || Video

Christians are constantly striving for personal holiness. As Christians celebrate all that Christ has saved them from, they should also celebrate all that Christ has saved them to. Those most passionate about the gospel should also be the most passionate about personal holiness. Work is not only a response to the work of God, but a result of it.   Read more of this post

Does your life show evidence of confidence in the gospel? The greatest hindrance to the gospel is Christians’ lack of confidence in the power of the gospel. Christians need to cultivate confidence in the gospel.

God’s Plan

God has an overarching plan to get glory through his people. He is infinitely glorious and wants the creatures made in his images to glorify him. He brings this about through the people he purchased (the Church) and Jesus Christ. God’s people are the means to bring him glory.

Speaker: Al Mohler                                            Key text: Romans 10:5-17     

Listen to the full sermon: Audio || Video

By meeting in Christian community, we help keep each other in sound doctrine. Sometimes the gospel is underestimated, even by its proponents. Too often we are content to “share the gospel at all times, and when necessary use words.” That strips the gospel of its power! The gospel must be shared using words in order to be effective. In other words, we should “share the gospel at all times, and when necessary use actions.”                                            Read more of this post

Speaker: C.J. Mahaney                                                Key text: 2 Corinthians 4:1-18         

Listen to the full sermon: Audio || Video

Second Corinthians is an intimate autobiography of Paul’s ministry. He was often faced with the temptation to lose heart in his ministry due to opposition, circumstances, and trials. Instead of giving up, he faced the temptation with a resolve to not lose heart that was grounded in the gospel.                                                           Read more of this post
