Men's Fellowship

 

The Men's Fellowship, sponsored by Grace Baptist Church, meets nearly bi-weekly on Saturday mornings at 7:00 AM.   Men of all ages and vocations from more than seven Evangelical churches in the area regularly attend the meetings.   These times of thought-provoking lively discussion result in strengthened relationships, sharpened minds, and deepened faith.


In
the fall of 2018, we are beginning a study of two companion books by David Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Joy Unspeakable and The Sovereign Spirit.   Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981), minister of Westminster Chapel in London for thirty years, was one of the foremost preachers of his day.   These were originally one complete sermon series, and had been published together in original chronological order in The Baptism and Gifts of the Spirit.   These expositions of Scripture dare Christians to be restless for a deeper encounter with God's Spirit.   Martyn Lloyd-Jones explores the assertion of John the Baptist that Jesus would baptize with the Holy Spirit.   The result is a classic call to submit afresh to the Spirit for power, purity and assurance, while keeping our heads in the face of pitfalls that might distract or ensnare us.   It is a warmly vibrant study of all that the Bible says on the Spirit and spiritual gifts.   It is, further, a passionate call to draw close to God and describes promises to the church and individual Christians.

 

Previously discussed books include The Call by Os Guinness, Manly Dominion by Mark Chanski, The Universe Next Door by James Sire, Shattering the Gods Within by Dr. David F. Allen, Who Are You to Judge? by Erwin Lutzer, Extreme Righteousness: Seeing Ourselves in the Pharisees by Thomas O. Hovestol, The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy Keller, How Should We Then Live? by Francis Schaeffer, Sense and Sensuality by Ravi Zacharias, Respectable Sins: Confronting the Sins We Tolerate by Jerry Bridges, Contemplation: Intimacy in a Distant World by Dr. David F. Allen, Has Christianity Failed You by Ravi Zacharias and Fool's Talk by Os Guinness
