Are you Reformed? I mean like black coffee Presbyterian, John Calvin fan club member, "yes, I own Francis Turretin’s three volumes of Elenctic Theology" Reformed? If so, do you want to feel uncomfortable?
Oh, I trust you do. Don’t Presbyterians love a good challenge?
Well, I’ve been digging around in the goldmine of workshops from this year’s Gospel Coalition National Conference, and while I will be recommending other excellent presentations in the weeks to come, Mark Driscoll’s takes the prize (so far). Powerful message! Very powerful! But also controversial... if you’re a cessationist.
In this message, he examines the role of the Holy Spirit in the Gospel of Luke, paying particular attention to Jesus’ life. With both pastoral care and punch, he challenges the Reformed to not forget the Holy Spirit. Said another way, and perhaps a bit more accurately, he centers a cross-hair on Reformed folks and pulls the trigger, urging those of us who tend to forget the third Person of the Trinity, as well as those who tend to be theological egg-heads, to get out onto the battlefield and fight in the power of the Holy Spirit.
There was a lot of yelling in message, but I didn’t care. It was too good to notice it.
Must Listen Factor: While the lecture was directed at pastors, anyone can benefit from it. I’m going to go out on a limb and call this a must listen.
