Continuing from the previous recaps on Tuesday.
After the second session with Thabiti, we got to hear R.C. Sproul on the third session. We read from Mark 4:35-41 as his text to preach “The Holiness of Christ.” All I can say here is that I’ve never heard anyone preach that passage like that before! To listen to his message, click here.
After lunch, for session 4, we heard John Piper’s presentation: “Holy Faith, Worthy Gospel, World Vision: Andrew Fuller’s Broadsides Against Sandemanianism, Hyper-Calvinism, and Global Unbelief.” That is his actual sermon title!
I don’t know anybody who passionately makes a dead saint alive like Piper. We all got a good dose of what a superb biographical preaching is. Piper wore several hats in his presentation, which includes a historian, systematic theologian, preacher, apologist, and exegete. After listening to Piper’s persuasion to get to know Fuller, I can’t wait to read The Armies of the Lamb: The Spirituality of Andrew Fuller by Michael A.G. Haykin, which I purchased.

After dinner, and after a very long singing time (somewhat physically exhausting) R.C. Sproul read from Leviticus 10:1-7 to preach “Holiness and Justice.” Yes, Leviticus! I mean, when was the last time you heard a sermon from Leviticus? Once again, we rejoiced in hearing a powerful message from Dr. Sproul. To listen to “Holiness and Justice” click here.
I ended this day with praying with men in the hotel room, and then crashed in my hotel room!
