Meditations on our Savior

Isaiah 50:4-9


Monday: Our Awakened Savior


“The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.” ~ Isa. 50:4


The Spirituality of the Church

When a pastor addresses social issues from the Bible, is he violating the spirituality of the church? When a believer defends a particular social belief from the Old Testament, is he committing the same offense, or a “history of redemption” error? These are common responses within the Reformed community. The spirituality of the church is taken to mean that the church should speak authoritatively to “spiritual” issues, while addressing moral and social issues only generally, never with chapter and verse.
