NEXT 2010 Conference Audio

I just downloaded all 7 sessions from the recent NEXT conference hosted by Sovereign Grace Ministries.  I'm almost done listening to Josh Harris' opening message entitled, "What are You Built On?"  In this message, Josh reminds us of the importance of sound doctrine (keep in mind that this conference is focusing on the primary doctrines of the Christian faith:  the doctrines of God, Scripture, Sanctification, Church, etc.)  but also challenges us to be sure that our doctrine is not an end in itself, but rather the means by which we get to Christ.  Doctrine is a pointer.  The Point is Christ.

"You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me..." John 5:39

The other reason I'm highlighting this message is because Josh is preaching from one of Jesus' parables (the wise and foolish builders in Luke 6:46-49).  By now you should know that the parables will be our focus this summer during 222, so let me commend these messages to you and especially Josh's opening message from this well-known parable.

Lastly - while poking around on the NEXT website I discovered their monthly webzine.  Looks like some great articles & resources here - not to mention the incredible graphics!!
