I opened my Email this morning to discover a new video series produced by Ligonier Ministries. What excited me is the fact that Ian Hamilton is the feature lecturer. Dr. Hamilton is the author of Let’s Study the Letters of John among other book. He is also the pastor at Cambridge Presbyterian Church in the UK and on the board of Greenville Seminary (among many other things).
Here is a summary of the new series: “It is impossible to encounter God’s saving grace and not be powerfully and permanently changed. John Calvin knew this. In this new 6-part teaching series, Pastor Ian Hamilton demonstrates that Calvinism is biblical, God-centered Christianity with important implications for our daily lives. This theology is not simply academic. It is a theology for all of life—a theology in which the grace of Jesus Christ shapes everything.”
You can watch the first lecture and purchase the series Calvinism and the Christian Life by clicking here.
On another note, if you would be so kind as to click here and like, I would appreciate it. Lord willing I will be pastoring this church in the very near future.

Jesus says of Himself in Luke 24:44, “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that All things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” Luke 24:27 says, “And beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.” Throughout the book of acts we see the apostles doing the very same thing. For example, Paul was “trying to persuade them concerning Jesus, from both the Law of Moses and from the Prophets…”
