AN ORDER OF SERVICE FOR DIVINE WORSHIP; DESIGNED FOR PRIVATE DEVOTIONS, FAMILY GATHERINGS AND CHURCH MEETINGS.

Sermon—“My Rule Of Conduct”

——————————-
Some of the points covered in this sermon:
• Providing a rudimentary sketch of the historic controversy over the rule of conduct for a believer’s life
• Siding with the basic conclusions of Agricola, Huntington and Gadsby—the gospel law is the rule of conduct for the believer’s life
• An explanation of Jared’s view on why the gospel law is the rule of conduct for the believer’s life
• Every “law” is confined to the jurisdiction of a covenant—henceforth, the “law” which governs a person’s life is determined by the covenant under which he/she is subject
• The heart law is under the jurisdiction of the covenant of works, which is binding upon all unregenerate sinners
• The moral law (ten commandments) is under the jurisdiction of the Mosaic Covenant, which was binding upon the Jewish people as a nation (Moses, 1491 BC – Destruction Of Jerusalem, AD 70)
• The gospel law is under the jurisdiction of the covenant of grace, which is binding upon all regenerate sinners
• Conclusions: (1) The moral law (ten commandments) is binding upon no one today; (2) The heart law is binding upon the unregenerate; (3) The gospel law is binding upon the regenerate

Sermon—“Seek Thy Servant”

——————————-
Some of the points covered in this sermon:
• Highlighting the twofold confession and single petition of David in Psalm 119:176
• Explaining the first of two Calvinistic views of Regeneration—the sinful nature itself is regenerated, with a new principle of life implanted therein; from this view the doctrine of ‘Progressive Sanctification’ is derived, which brings the believer under the yoke of rules and regulations; it is characterized by legalism and pharisaism, as the believer attempts to live godly in Christ Jesus under the heart law
• Explaining the second of two Calvinistic views of Regeneration—the soul itself is regenerated, with a righteous nature imparted, entirely separate from the sinful nature; from this view the doctrine of ‘Growing in Grace’ is derived, which brings the believer under the yoke of Christ; it is characterized by liberty and freedom, as the believer endeavors to live godly in Christ Jesus under the gospel law
• Showing how Psalm 119:176 affirms the second of the two Calvinist views of Regeneration
