What Is Your Identity?
Written by David Wise   
Sunday, 27 January 2019 08:55

“Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?” – John 21:20

 

The Apostle John introduces himself in a curious way quite a few times in his gospel, as “the disciple whom Jesus loved”. This might sound, at first blush, as almost a prideful statement by John, declaring himself as the object of Jesus’ love. However, John was not declaring any preeminence over anyone else, that he was the sole or primary source of God’s love. Instead, he simply viewed his primary identity as being loved by Jesus Christ. In like manner, we need to place our primary identity as being loved by Christ.

Stability in Thy Times
Written by David Wise   
Sunday, 20 January 2019 15:36

“And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.” (Isaiah 33:6)

 

This world has been in a perpetual state of chaos and turmoil since the sin of Adam cursed this world and all its inhabitants. How then can we have any real “stability” in the midst of a world that is filled with so much calamity, sorrow, pain, and vitriol? God gives us the prescription for that “stability” here in his word: it’s by “wisdom and knowledge” that our times can be stabilized while we briefly sojourn here in this world.

A Correction
Written by Ben Winslett   
Friday, 18 January 2019 10:01

It seems that I once again made the morning headlines (lol) on the disgruntled PB gossip blog, The Old Baptist Test. I generally ignore the complaints or accusations of Stephen Garrett and his contributors, because I believe what such men really want is attention. If you feed him, he'll keep coming back. Garrett, Fralick, and the like are entitled to their opinions and I am happy to let them be. I wish them no ill and harbor no animosity against them. That being said, in his rebuke of me today, Garrett made a few remarks that were false. He even reported that I said things which I did not say. [I'm honored he is so bothered by what I preach that he apparently watches my sermons to pick them apart.] So, in the spirit of correcting the record, I am replying here on my blog. We all have pet peeves, and perhaps my greatest is when men say things about me which are untrue. Whether Mr Garrett misunderstood or is simply misrepresenting me because he cannot help himself, I have no way of knowing. Either way, I feel it worth issuing one reply. I have no intention of continuing a dialogue with him or his cohorts.

God's Covenant of Love
Written by David Wise   
Wednesday, 16 January 2019 20:49

“Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord God, and thou becamest mine.” (Ezekiel 16:8)

 

When God saw his chosen people in a dead, stillborn condition (Ezek. 16:1-7), God’s reaction was not apathy but love. God willingly chose to show love, but he chose to further obligate himself with a covenant of love with his people. God entered into the marital covenant where Christ would eventually come into this world to redeem his bride from death.

Deacons' Charge
Written by Ben Winslett   
Sunday, 13 January 2019 21:56

Recently at Flint River, we were blessed to ordain a couple of deacons. Our service was a bit more abbreviated than the traditional, all day ordination. We met at 10, had a half hour each of singing and preaching respectively, and then went directly into the ordination. Due to the nature of the day, my charge to the two brothers was more brief than perhaps we might be accustomed to (just over 17 minutes). But, for what it's worth, I did feel inclined to share it with you here on MTZ.

Regarding the Passing of Mr Bush
Written by Ben Winslett   
Thursday, 06 December 2018 12:54

Periodically over the past two days, I have watched news coverage of the various funeral services and ceremonies for President George H.W. Bush. This has been very intriguing for a number of reasons. For one, it is rare to witness such respect given to a departed individual. The processions each time the casket was moved were reminiscent of something you would see in a movie. This was a special moment, rare for any and every one of us. It was such a display of dignity and respect; combining civilians, clergy, military, musicians, and elected leaders all in one place for one purpose.
