A Conversation with Death

Below is a link to the sermon by John Piper that I referred to on Sunday. It is the narration of a conversation between a young boy and Death.
It is well worth your time and reflection.

The Other Sermon I Would like to Have Preached Today

Here is an outline of the sermon that I referred to this morning. You can read the complete text of the sermon by clicking the link at the bottom of this post. When I first read this, my spirit was greatly stirred to exalt in the amazing grace of God in my own salvation and in the glorious and humbling privilege of educating angels.

Angels Made Wiser by the Gospel, by Charles Simeon (1759-1836)
Eph. 3:10. To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the Church the manifold wisdom of God.
I.      The manifold wisdom of God, as exhibited in the Gospel—
Verily, it is wonderfully displayed,
1.      In making salvation possible—
2.      In devising a salvation suitable to man—
3.      In appointing a salvation so conducive to his own glory—

II.      The instruction which the angels themselves derive from the revelation of it to the Church—

The angels, from the first moment of their creation, saw much of God: but of him, as exhibited in the Gospel, they could have no conception, till that fuller revelation of him was given to the Church. Then the angels began to see:
1.      The extent of his perfections—
2.      The harmony of his perfections—
3.      The felicity arising from this exercise of his perfections—

III.      From this wonderful subject we may see,
1.      What guilt they contract who pervert the Gospel of Christ—
2.      What folly they commit who neglect it—
3.      What happiness is reserved for the saints in heaven—
