    http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/70-38 Scriptures: Selected Scriptures Date Preached: November 30, 2014 AUSTIN: Pastor John, this is, I don’t know the number. No one knows the number. You have operated in innumerable Q&As in your ministry. JOHN: That’s true. AUSTIN: You did one at the college the other day. We’ve done this before. You’ve sat with Phil Johnson more times than you can count getting grilled. You’ve had questions and answers at Shepherds’ Conferences, at the Ligonier Conference. Have you always done this? Do people just come up to you asking questions your whole life? Is this something you did on purpose at the church to just help people? Give us a little background of the Q&A. JOHN: Well, I guess you always have the fear that you’re saying what no one wants to know. AUSTIN: Hmm. JOHN: I prepare, I come up, and I preach a sermon whether you want to know it or not. I don’t even ask. So, in order to sort of move away from the reality that I may be saying things that nobody cares to hear, early in the ministry at Grace Church, I started setting aside Sunday nights pretty frequently to just hear from the congregation because I wanted to know what they were thinking. I wanted to know what was on their heart. I wanted to know trends. I wanted to know issues, things that they were concerned about...

      The Book of Ephesians says that God wants to open our eyes to an amazing journey that He has called us to and is filled with hope. In order for us to fully experience this adventure, we must all begin it at the same starting point. This is our topic starting July 5th as we begin a brand new series entitled, "Oh, The Places You’ll Go." trygrace.org

        • Paul’s Transformation, Part 2

          47:15

          from John MacArthur / Added

          http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/44-33 Scripture: Acts 9:10–31 Date Preached: May 24, 2015 I want you to turn to the 9th chapter of Acts. We’re going to try to kind of hurry our way through this 9th chapter. So we’ll look at chapter 9 and just glance through it. This is the chapter that gives us the historical account of the conversion of the apostle Paul. There is so much in the book of Acts devoted to this event, the 9th chapter of Acts. And then Paul gives his testimony in the 22nd chapter of Acts to some Jewish leaders; and then in the 26th chapter of Acts, to some Roman authorities. So we have these three accounts of the conversion of the apostle Paul. We have really no other conversion in the Scripture that is dealt with with such detail and such length. This is a powerful story of a man who became the author of 13 epistles in the New Testament, and who dominates the historical record of the gospel into the world in the book of Acts. His life is remarkable…

            50:18

            from John MacArthur / Added

            http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-77 Scripture: John 14:27 Date Preached: May 10, 2015 We come now to the Word of God and we return to the 14th chapter of the gospel of John: John, chapter 14. As we’ve been going through the gospel of John, we’ve taken paragraphs pretty much along the way. But this morning I want to deal with just one verse, one verse that is a very wonderful verse, a very important one. It’s John, chapter 14 and verse 27, John 14:27. We’ve worked our way all the way up to this verse and I couldn’t get past it, it’s just so rich. John 14:27 says, “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid.” Peace appears twice in that brief verse. It’s a popular word; it’s an almost impossible reality. It is a constant pursuit. I give credit to people for chasing it. But it seems as though the world has been unable to find it, and that is, in fact, true…

            • The Astounding Conversion of Paul

              52:51

              from John MacArthur / Added

              http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/44-31 Text: Acts 9:1–9 Date: May 03, 2015 I would say beyond the person of our Lord Jesus Christ Himself that Paul has had the greatest influence on my life, and that influence has been going on for most of my life; pretty intense over the last 50 years or so for sure. Paul, the author of 13 of the New Testament books; Paul, the looming figure in the book of Acts and the dominant figure for most of the book of Acts, is the main player on the stage after our Lord ascends back into heaven. He has been, for me, a model of ministry, a pattern to follow in every way. He is the inspired author of books that shape all our theology, all our understanding of the gospel and it’s depth, and height, and length, and breadth. He is, in my mind, the one I follow as he follows Christ, and he commanded believers: “Follow me – ” he said “ – as I follow Christ.” …

                  49:26

                  from John MacArthur / Added

                  http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/43-75 Text: John 14:15–24 John 14 is before us. We are in the Upper Room Discourse. That’s what it’s called, John 13 to 16. All the words of Jesus essentially, with a few other questions posed by the disciples; this is the long description of the promises that our Lord gives His children, every believer. All the way from chapter 13 to the end of chapter 16, just one promise after another, after another, after another. It starts with love, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the max. Chapter 13, verse 1, that’s how it starts; and it just goes from there with promise, after promise, after promise. There is no other passage like this in the Bible. That doesn’t appear in Matthew, Mark, or Luke. This is inimitable to John. It is stretched out, elongated. It is down deep and up high. It is the richest section of Scripture summarizing what the Lord promises to those who belong to Him. Powerful, powerful passage. We are in chapter 14 and we’re looking at verses 15 and following – and I’ll read that in just a moment. But before we kind of look into that passage, just a few comments…

                    01:00:32

                    from John MacArthur / Added

                    http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/44-30 Text: Acts 8:25–40 Let’s go to the Word of God in the 8th chapter of the book of Acts, the Acts of the apostles under the power of the Holy Spirit; Acts, chapter 8. We’re doing a little series in the 8th chapter of the book of Acts on the faith that does not save and the faith that does save. Last week, we looked at the faith that does not save, as illustrated by Simon the magician. This week, we look at the faith that does save, as illustrated by the Ethiopian eunuch. In both cases, Philip is the key instrument of God in the narratives in this chapter. Philip – not Philip the apostle – but Philip the deacon from the 6th chapter, a non-Israeli Jew, a Jew who was a non-Palestinian Jew from the Hellenistic world who was part of the church, he was brought to Christ along with many, many thousands of others in the early church. And he was one of those noble men who were chosen to provide service and leadership to the church. He was a very powerful man, a godly man, a Spirit-filled man, power preacher, and the Lord even did miracles through him – an amazing man…

                      http://www.gty.org/resources/sermons/70-39 Text: Selected Scriptures AUSTIN: We have a bunch of personal questions tonight, some biblical questions and some theological questions. We left a bunch of questions on the table, and all week folks blamed me for that. I’m trying to keep pace up here, but it’s like riding a wild mustang. You can’t control this man. He does as he will. [Laughter] So I’m going to try to tackle those three categories though: personal, biblical, theological questions that were submitted to us. I know you were handed a bunch of questions on cards, lots of stuff. JOHN: Yeah, yeah. A little nine-year-old boy wanted to know why Job 39:9-10 mentions a unicorn, and why would there be a fantasy animal in the Bible? The answer to that is pretty simple. That you find in the King James Version, but nothing after that. It was a term that referred to a wild ox. What Job is talking about is the difficulty of harnessing a wild ox, but I love it when nine-year-old kids are reading their Bible...
