Servants and Masters

Created on 16 April 2018

Continuing our series through Ephesians, we come to a rather sensitive subject Paul speaks to in Ephesians chapter 6: Servitude. In this message, Pastor Ben Winslett contrasts servitude as it was in the first century to the atrocious institution of slavery in the early United States. Even though the framework to which this admonition applies is no more in our culture, this passage is still very much relevant for employees and employers. The godly wisdom in these passages can introduce the peace of Christ into the workplace. Listen to learn more.

Ah, parenting! It's such a wonderful source of joy. At the same time, it can be very stressful and even in the best of times, exhausting. Continuing our recent series through the Book of Ephesians, we come to Paul's admonitions to children and parents. While nothing can take all the stress out of parents in this sin-cursed world, God's word provides the roadmap for the optimal framework for healthy children and a greater peace in the home.

Marriage is an institution of divine appointment. That is, in the beginning of time, God joined the first man and woman together as a union, for the purpose of companionship and also to fill the earth with people. This being so, how can we conduct our homes in such a way as to glorify God? 

In this message, Pastor Winslett continues his series through Ephesians, coming to Paul's exhortations to husbands and wives in chapter 5.

The Joy of Singing

Print
Category: Radio Broadcasts - Words of Grace
Created on 27 March 2018

In today's radio program, from our continued series on the book of Ephesians, we consider the concept of an "altered state of perception." In specific, Paul exhorts us not to be "drunk with wine," but rather to be "filled with the Spirit" by singing praise to God. What an interesting contrast! The abuse of alcohol changes the mood and perspective of a drunkard, but generally for the worse. However, singing praise to God, lifts our spirits and alters our perception to the positive, unto righteousness and holiness!

Putting Off the "Old Man"

Category: Radio Broadcasts - Words of Grace
Created on 12 March 2018

One of the more interesting metaphors Paul used was "putting off the old man" and "putting on the new man." Simply put, after being saved and converted, we should discard our former behavior, as inherited from the nature of Adam, and engage in Christ-like behavior, as enabled through the new birth. We consider this expression in today's edition of Words of Grace.

Sometimes, in our minds, we constrain the love of God to the sort of love we experience as humans. In reality, the love of God is so great, so vast, and so powerful, that we cannot fully comprehend it. In this message, Pastor Winslett considers Paul's desire from Ephesians 3, that we would all know more of the height, depth, width, and length of God's love.

Today, it is commonly place for us to think of the Church as a "Gentile" institution. That is, New Testament worshipers are found in all nations, from all walks of life. But did you know, to many in the Old Testament, this was a foreign concept? In fact, Paul refers to this as a mystery hidden from the foundation of the world!

Quickening: A Spiritual Resurrection

Created on 05 February 2018

Most Christians are familiar with the concept of being "born again," but few seem to understand that the new birth is an act of Divine Quickening, a resurrection from death in trespasses and sins. Continuing our recent studies through the book of Ephesians, in this edition of Words of Grace, Pastor Ben Winslett comes to chapter 2, which contains perhaps the clearest language in all of the Bible about who we are prior to the new birth, and God's exclusive, sovereign role in regenerating us.

Some of the most plain, direct statements of God's grace towards man appear in Ephesians chapter 1.  In verse 4, we're told God chose us to be holy and without blame before Him. In verse 5, we learn that we were predestinated by God as an adopted child. Then, verse 7 speaks to redemption through the blood of Christ.

Acts: Our Pattern of Evangelism

We've spoken a lot about evangelism and the early church lately on Words of Grace. Today, we conclude these thoughts, once again in the book of Acts, looking to the daily practice of evangelism in the lives of first century preachers. Serious believers in America often lament the lack of effectiveness the church seems to have in our culture. Some times, we think the solution is political. However, our power has always been the Holy Ghost, and our the true gospel our force for change in society. May we return to our roots, and preach the gospel!

Pastor Winslett returns to a familiar, favorite text in today's broadcast, from 1 Timothy 3:16. Paul wrote, "without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh..." That is, the babe born in the manger was no less than God Himself, incarnate in human flesh. And, the fact of Jesus' divinity is "without controversy," that is, something confessed and professed by the true church.

Wise to do Evil?

In many ways, the current American Christian culture is similar to pre-exile Israel. Through the words of Jeremiah, God condemned the Israelites because they were wise to do evil, and had no knowledge to do good. That meant, they excelled in getting away with (so they thought) wickedness, but could not even accomplish basic righteous tasks.

Historic Baptists on Justification

Continuing our message from last week on the subject of justification, we go to greater depths in the study of the beliefs of historic Baptists regarding justification by faith. The main question considered is whether faith is instrumental or evidentiary. That is, are we legally made righteous by faith, as the classical Reformed position states, or are we made righteous by Christ and declared as such by faith? As you'll see from the quotes cited in this broadcast, the popular view among 17th Century Baptists was the evidentiary position. Listen to learn more!

Taking the Oversight Thereof

Print
Category: Radio Broadcasts - Words of Grace
Created on 29 May 2017

In 1 Peter 5, the Apostle Peter exhorted the elders to feed the flock of God among them, willingly taking the pastoral oversight. You can be sure that where scripture admonishes us in a certain direction, that admonition exists because we need the reminder or the extra push to get us moving. Elders should always remember that it is God who drafted us into His service, as a soldier who must endure hardship. Our lives, though they were never our own, are that much more under the leadership of God as we are to serve God by serving His people. We must feed His sheep! Our careers, comfort, and even sometimes our hometown roots - if required - go out the window, as no man that plows looking back is fit for service in the Kingdom. Elders should know this up front. This is what's expected. 

In this message, Pastor Winslett considers Peter's exhortation to other ministers and the theme is simple: If God has called you to serve, be willing to do so.

In today's broadcast, Pastor Winslett considers two very controversial subjects that historic Baptists embraced, but most modern theologians reject: Church Perpetuity and the received text. 

It's extremely clear from history that baptistic people held the belief that the true church existed throughout the Dark Ages, separate from Roman Catholicism. It's also an undeniable fact that historic theologians among both Baptists and Protestant endorsed the family of Greek manuscripts which comprised the Received Text. Yet, sadly, proponents of both opinions are criticized in today's world as being extremists or crackpot theologians. 

While these thoughts are admittedly controversial, we implore you to listen to this episode of Words of Grace.
