The Ministry of Faith - Benevolence part 1

September 11, 2019

Today we continue our look at Romans fifteen. Pastor Al will spend the next four broadcasts discussing the ways we can use our faith to minister to others. First of all, we can be benevolent. That’s a word that isn’t used a lot these days, but the dictionary defines benevolence as being “well-meaning and kindly”. How does that translate to a demonstration of our faith? Let’s find out!

References: Romans 15:25-29

We are definitely nearing the finish line in our series through this wonderful book, and today we will be in chapter fifteen, verses twenty-two through twenty-five. The providence of God is the topic, and we certainly live in a world where God’s all encompassing power is questioned and rejected by many people. Well, the fact is, mankind’s opinion about God’s providence has nothing to do with the fact that God is in control of everything!

Planning is a good idea in the Christian life, as we’ll  see today on The Dwelling Place.  As we open Romans fifteen, the apostle Paul is about to lay out his plans for future ministry . Pastor Al Pittman has noticed a few principles we can glean from God’s providence in our lives, and he’ll share those momentarily.  We’re getting close to the finish line here in our study of Romans.  No travel guide is needed for this trip, just an open Bible and an open heart to allow the Spirit to lead.

You can focus on a lot of different things and meet a lot of different needs - but what is man’s greatest need? Shouldn’t that be our focus?  Today we’ll be reminded that all ministry is by grace and is to be centered in the gospel. As we’ve seen so many times in recent years, straying from the truth is a commonplace occurrence.

Al Pittman is currently teaching verse by verse through the New Testament book of Romans. Today’s message is all about confidence. Not the bragging kind of confidence we see on display almost everywhere, but the confidence of knowing that God will do what he says he will do.  Again, to have that confidence, we need constant reminders.

Al attended Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1977 with a degree in Biblical Studies. In 1991 Al and his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and two years later he joined the staff of Calvary Chapel Albuquerque as an assistant pastor and co-worship leader. In the spring of 1997 the Lord called Al and his family back to Colorado Springs to pastor Calvary Worship Center. In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
