HeartCry Missionary Conference 2004 | Various Speakers
Texts: Philippians 2:12-13; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23; John 15:1-11
Although the HeartCry Missionary Conference 2004 had no stated theme, the sermons given at this conference all deal with living the Christian life. The first two messages on Philippians 2:12-13, preached by Mack Tomlinson, deal with sanctification, "increasing in holiness of life." The first sermon covers some very helpful introductory information and also God's role in the process. The second message describes the role of the Christian in sanctification. In the next three sermons, Charles Leiter gives stirring teaching on 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, about the Law of Moses being replaced by the Law of Christ. His first message makes it very clear that the Law of Christ is not the Law and Moses, and he explains God's intention for the Law of Moses in redemptive history. The second sermon describes the Christian's freedom from the Law of Moses. The third message states that the Law of Christ is love for God and other people, as displayed by Christ Himself, and Charles shows the superiority of Christ's Law to the Law of Moses. The last sermon at this conference is by Paul Washer on John 15:1-11, "The Vine and the Branches," and describes how the Christian's life flows naturally from a union with Christ Himself.
Every topic covered in this conference is essential information for Christian living. Those recently burdened with a fresh desire to be more like Christ will be helped by this conference, since it will add knowledge to their zeal. Those who feel this desire fading may be compelled again to pursue godliness by listening to these messages.
