Living with Forever in Mind - Romans 1:14-17
Originally preached on January – February 2001
In 1891, James Naismith attached a peach basket to a wall, crafted some rules, and launched the game of basketball. His stated purpose for inventing the game was to give young men the Gospel of Christ. Centuries earlier, the Apostle Paul was gripped by this passion to deliver the Gospel to his generation. And in his own testimony, delivered in Romans 1, Paul reveals his motive in life: to enable people to live beyond the games they play today . . . to live with forever in mind.

The Affections of a Godly Man - Romans 1:8-13
Originally preached on December 2000 – January 2001
The truth of Scripture is like a priceless heirloom handed from one generation of believers to the next, and the ones primarily responsible for its care are men. For men are the ones who must lead their home and church to embrace the precious truth of Scripture and guard it with their lives. This responsibility is not for the faint in heart; the only men who will take such a role are those passionately committed to God. In this 4-message series, Stephen encourages men to develop godly affections and start a spiritual revolution by transferring a legacy that is so clear and true, so biblically distinctive and passionate, that the world will never be the same.
