    The Name Above All Names

    The Name Above All Names

    Acts 14:1-23; Rev. Aaron Roberts

    This good news raises some big questions for the young Church: Who belongs to God’s people? Can someone be saved simply by believing in Jesus? Some Jewish converts insist that Gentile believers also need to follow the Law of Moses to be saved and welcomed into the fellowship of God’s people (15:1). Paul and Barnabas are summoned to Jerusalem to address this pivotal question. Peter’s testimony silences the assembly: “God, who knows the heart, bore witness to [the Gentiles], by giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us…we believe that we will be saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, just as they will.” (15:8-11)

    All people are made in God’s image (Gen. 1:26-27); All have sinned and fall short of God’s glory (Rom. 3:23a). All are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Rom. 3:23b). There one name, given for the salvation of ALL nations and peoples, Jesus!

    The Name That Changes Lives

    The Name That Changes Lives

    Rev. Aaron Roberts; Acts 9:1-22

    Acts 9 introduces this series in two ways. (1) It introduces us to Paul, the main character in the second half of Acts. Paul’s dramatic conversion and apostolic calling provide the necessary background to understand his missionary journeys and the stories we will read throughout this series. (2) It introduces us to the theme of salvation in the name of Jesus. The Lord says to Ananias: “Go, for [Paul] is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name before the Gentiles and kings and the children of Israel.” Paul was chosen to carry the name of Jesus to all peoples, the only name given by which we must be saved. In the rest of the series we will witness how God works through Paul and his companions as they fulfill this calling.

Packer’s fireside

Thank you so much for such a rich Christmas gift!! I was so encouraged to hear JI Parker is still around and obviously very clear and willing to share. I’ve always considered him to be my spiritual grandad and it was such a thrill to hear him give practical and life giving teachings about the bible. Thank you so much for the podcast and looking forward to listening to all your podcasts at St. John’s
