2019 October 6 – Sunday afternoon service
Scripture reading: 1 Corinthians 7:17-24
Sermon: 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 Loving One Another
Update from 13 October 2019: we have managed to locate a recording on a backup memory card, and the message is now linked above. The original note from 6 October 2019 (below) no longer applies.
Due to technical problems, this message was not recorded. Summary: We need to ask ourselves what God has given us to do as our duty. If talent means being able to hit a target that no one else can hit, and genius means being able to hit a target that no one else can see, then Biblical prudence means hitting the target that God has revealed to us. Mature Christians will do only their known duty, in the sense that they will not take it upon themselves to do duties that they have not been called on by God to do. For all of us, our first duty is to honour our vows; our vow to follow Christ, our vow of marriage (for those of us who are married), and so on.
