This past Sunday, we had the opportunity to visit Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington D.C. and sit under the teaching of Dr. Mark Dever. It was such a wonderful service. I’ve only been to a few services who put that much emphasis on prayer not to mention the various segments of prayer during the service were focused on adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication.
The sermon text was Mark 12:28-34. Pastor Dever’s message was entitled “You Might Be Surprised…: What is Most Important.” Dever pointed out that Christ Jesus is answering four questions in this passage:
- Who is God?
- What does God most want us to do?
- What must accompany love for God?
- What does it mean to be in God’s Kingdom?
I’d encourage you all to go and listen to the message here. It was both encouraging and challenging for believers. If you’d like listen to prior sermons given at Capitol Hill Baptist Church, you can go to the audio page and download sermons.
