Going Public Lesson 02 - Living Up to Your Name

Going Public Lesson 02 - Living Up to Your Name

The Apostles taught first-century Christians to be obedient to—and pray for—their Roman rulers, unless a law required disobedience to God. They were to live according to God’s standard in a truly dark culture, demonstrating their commitment to the Lord by being good citizens. Today, we are also called to submit to authorities, graciously obey the law, and shine our light in the world. In other words, let’s live up to the name we wear: Christian.


From the pulpit ministry of Stephen Davey

This resource is from the pulpit ministry of Stephen Davey. Stephen is the son of missionary parents and was raised to love Christ and the gospel. In his last year of high school, Stephen committed his life to serve Christ vocationally wherever God chose to assign him in ministry. His first part-time opportunity was as a college student, serving one summer alongside his father, who had recently planted a church in Virginia Beach. As a part-time youth pastor, Stephen saw the Lord impact the lives of students with His timeless word.

Following graduation from Dallas in 1986, Stephen and Marsha moved with their infant twin sons to Cary, North Carolina, to plant The Shepherd's Church. From the very beginning, Stephen preached expository sermons, while Marsha created the nursery and children’s programs. In those early days, word of the new church’s commitment to Bible exposition and the doctrines of grace spread rapidly, and the fellowship was soon overflowing with attendees. In September of 2021, Stephen reached 35 years of pastoring this wonderful ministry and church family.

The full-length sermons posted here are the fruit of Stephen's preaching ministry at The Shepherd's Church.
