In the section Living Word we want to provide sermon outlines to help pastors in the preparation for their important and central task of preaching. We try to provide help in the exposition and the application of the text. This week: Matthew 4:5-7.
If God is not in absolute control of the free human acts generally, then he was not in absolute control of the writings done by the biblical authors, and it cannot in that case be fully true that "the mind of the Spirit is understood when the text of the document is understood."
This section has articles specifically for youth. The Lord promised that the outpouring of his Spirit will affect even the youth in a wonderful way (Acts 2:17). Therefore, youth will also be interested to learn what it means to be a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ.
You can find material here that is suitable for Bible study. The purpose of these articles is to give an overview of longer Bible passages. This material is suitable for personal or group Bible study. Some of the Bible studies have questions which can be used for discussion.
