Christ’s Lordship Over Our Relationships (Colossians 3:18-4:1)

Edit: In the sermon, I mention that the word “Lord” (κύριος, otherwise translated “master”) is used eight times in 3:18-4:1, seven of which refer to Christ. That is not correct. I realized afterward that I miscounted. “Lord” is actually mentioned nine times, seven of which indeed refer to Christ (and one additional time if one includes the reference in 3:17).

Family Worship (with Donald Whitney)

Across history, Christians have worshiped God in their homes as families on a daily basis. What is family worship, what does it look like, and what are some practical instructions for how we might go about implementing it in our own homes? In today’s episode, we talk to Donald Whitney, a professor of Biblical spirituality, about the practice of family worship.
