New Sermon About Faith, Hope, Love from Andy Baker at Berry's Chapel
Why Follow Jesus Christ? Why Not Follow Some Other World Leader?
An Audio Sermon based on Colosians 1:9-13,and Romans 1:1-4, Delivered on December 12, 2010 by Evangelist Andy Baker
FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, THESE THREE.
"But now abide faith, hope, love, these three." (1st Corinthians 13:13).
"Constantly bearing in mind your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ." (1st Thessalonians 1:3).
The Holy Bible introduces us to concepts which theologians sometimes call
"metaphysical" concepts. These are concepts generally of "being and knowing"
which are not based on "hard physical science." They include Biblical concepts
like those of spirit, soul, heaven, hell, angels, demons, Satan, the Almighty God,
etc. In short, the so-called "metaphysical" concepts include all to which the Bible
refers as "things which are not seen." The scripture further informs us, "For the
things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal."
(2ndCorinthians 4:18). It is with things "eternal" and "not seen," things which
cannot be discerned with the five senses of the fleshly body, which I am
concerned in this study. Instead of the term "metaphysical things," however, I
prefer to use the Biblical term "spiritual things," as does Paul in Romans 15:27.

THAT WE MIGHT BEAR FRUIT FOR GOD
By F. M. Perry
A series of studies in the Roman letter
(Romans 5:12 to 8:39 and 12:1 to 15:14)
Romans 7:4. "Therefore, my brethren, you also were made to die to the Law through the body of Christ, that you might be joined to another, to Him who was raised from the dead, that we might bear fruit for God."
LOVE AS EXPRESSED BY SPIRIT AND SOUL AND BODY
By F. M. Perry
Let us start by remembering that Jesus said, "A new commandment I give to you, that you also love one another.” (John 13:34 NASV). And Jesus also said, "I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you.” (Matt. 5:44). Jesus said He wants us to love, even our enemies. We try to use our will power to love our enemies and we find it hard, if not impossible to do. In fact, we find it difficult to even understand that kind of love within the reasoning power of our intellect. Can a Scriptural knowledge of the functions of our spirit, soul, and body help us to understand love and how to carry out Jesus' command to love? Let's go on.
FUNDAMENTALS OF SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING
By F. M. Perry
This is a study of the human spirit, the human soul, and the human body with the Bible as the source of information. This study is presented in the expectation of learning some fundamental truths that will help in understanding the spiritual life God has made possible for mankind. The chapter titles of the study (prepared in pdf format) are as follows:

The thesis of this study is simply this fact. Man, as the highest level of the created world, is in reality "a-being-in-process." And we must see the completed end of the process in order to understand what man is. The Gospel of Jesus Christ asserts that he, the man who after he had died was raised from the dead by the power of God, is indeed the completed end. The good news in this fact is this: in that man (Jesus) we see the true nature and destiny of every man.
This possibility, this truth, (man, "a-being-in-process") is essential to an understanding of the theme in this paper. This understanding tremendously elevates our appreciation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are a part of, but more than, lower levels of reality. But we are not yet what we are designed to be. That which we are destined to becomewill involve all levels of reality from the lowest to an even higher yet to come. I hope this idea is so appealing that you will want to continue your reading. I'm trying here to get you to have the anticipation of a "gold prospector" with the feeling you just may be close to some real pay dirt. (Continued)
