A DANIEL TRAINING NETWORK CONFERENCE

The One Hope, One Boast Conference is a gathering organized for the purpose of encouraging disciples of Jesus to place their sole confidence in the cross (our “boast”; Ga 6:14), as they wait patiently for the return of Jesus (our “blessed hope”; Tit 2:13).

hope-glory

One Hope: The Second Coming

It [the grace of God] teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness…while we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ… Titus 2:12-13

boast-cross

One Boast: Messiah Crucified

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world… Galations 6:14

Summons To Foolishness

What would motivate a human being to embrace such utter foolishness? In 1 Corinthians 3:18, the apostle Paul says, “Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.” In days of old, God told a man named Noah to build an ark. Noah built an ark, and in their hubris, men called it foolishness…but God called it wisdom. In the end, the Flood settled the matter. So too, a storm of unprecedented magnitude is appointed for the last days. God will test the hearts of all men. As the storm approaches, once again our Master is calling us to follow in the footsteps of our foolish forefathers and forsake the so-called wisdom of this age, in pursuit of a wisdom that will last forever. What does this look like?

This is the only foundation that can withstand the coming storm. This is the ark God is calling His people to build in a generation imbibed on false gospels and the wisdom of man.

Join us as we pursue the foolish wisdom of God.

Tim Miller

Session 1: The Obstacle of Insincere Motives

One of the striking features of Paul’s writings is the way he intentionally draws the attention of his readers to the fact that his life and ministry were driven by pure and sincere motives (see, eg, 2 Co 2:2; 1 Th 2:3-6), and to the various ways this fact was made known and put on open display (see, eg, 2 Co 6:3-10). In Paul’s mind, “secret and shameful ways” (2 Co 4:2, NIV) or “underhanded methods” (2 Co 4:2, NLT) put his ministry at risk of being “discredited” (2 Co 6:3, NIV), “blamed” (2 Co 6:3, HCSB), and found “at fault” (2 Co 6:3, ESV, NET). Sincere motives on the part of God’s servants—demonstrated in context to trial and difficulty—are themselves a powerful argument in favor of the truth and credibility of gospel. The converse, tragically, is also true: Insincere motives put the gospel’s credibility at risk of being called into question, and therefore constitute a serious stumbling block to its advance. In this session Tim will discuss how extremely important it is for us to allow God to “test our hearts” (2 Th 2:4), so that when we proclaim and represent the gospel, it is clear to all that our appeal “does not spring from error or impure motives” (2 Th 2:3, NIV).

Hans Kim

Session 2: The Obstacle of Falsehood

2 Peter 2 highlights false teachers as an ongoing obstacle to the way of Truth. False teachers exploit believers into following their example of indulging the flesh rather than crucifying it. False teachers are not going away; they will arise and deceive even to the end of the age. Each believer needs to be equipped to overcome the obstacle of falsehood, and it begins by embracing a love for the Truth in our own hearts and minds. The Spirit of Truth leads us to walk in the Truth, to deny ungodliness, to pick up our Crosses and follow Christ. There is an urgent need in in the Body of Christ for teachers and leaders who have been tried, tested and refined in the fire, who can provide an authentic example to the flock in the way of the cross. In this session Hans will discuss the vital roles that a love for the truth and a cross-centered example play in removing obstacles to the gospel.

Session 3: The Obstacle of Not Embracing the Cross

In Lk 9:23, Jesus says, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me” (NASB). The glory of the cross that leads men to inherit eternal life, also leads to a slow painful death to self in this age. As offensive as it may be to the human mind, a willingness to die to ourselves and submit to God’s purposes in bringing difficulty to our lives is necessary if the gospel is to be faithfully represented in the church and to the world. To deny the call to share in the Messiah’s sufferings in this age is to distort the gospel, and to distort the gospel is to hinder its advance. In this session Caleb will discuss one of the crucial steps we must take to ensure that our lives don’t become a stumbling block to the gospel: Coming to terms with the cost of discipleship.

Matthew Paul

Session 4: The Obstacle of Failing to Love our Enemies

At the heart of the gospel is a call to relate to our enemies in a spirit of love and mercy, out of an awareness of the great mercy and forgiveness that we ourselves have received from God: “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven” (Mt 5:44, ESV). In this late hour, it is extremely important that we as the Body of Christ demonstrate to the world the same kind of love that God himself demonstrated for us on the cross “while we were enemies” (Rm 5:10). Failure to do so is to misrepresent the gospel, and is therefore a hindrance to it. Drawing from the challenges that he and his family have experienced while serving in the Middle East, in this session Matthew will work through various Scriptures that challenge us to show the love of Christ “still more and more” (Php 1:9)—even to our enemies.

David Gordon

Session 1: The Obstacle of Faulty Paradigms and Ministry Pursuits

A clear unfolding revelation of the Biblical Gospel challenges and changes everything.  The Biblical Gospel demands repentance, change and adjustments in all areas of life, and therefore it must be rightly defined, defended and declared. As we grow and mature in our relationship with God, various obstacles arise that are actually contrary to this Biblical Gospel. In this session David will discuss, in context to his personal testimony, two issues that have great potential to impede the advance of the gospel on various levels: Faulty theological paradigms, and misguided ministry pursuits.

Richee Parks

Session 2: The Obstacle of Unmet Expectations

In order for us to run the race of the Christian life with endurance, it is very important that our expectations for life in this age conform to the pattern observed in Jesus himself: “…let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart” (Heb 12:1-3, NIV). Irrespective of where we are in our journey with the Lord, if we begin to take our eyes off of the “perfecter of our faith”—both the trials he endured, and the glory that awaited him on the other side—our expectations quickly become distorted, and we set ourselves up to become offended at God when they go unmet. In this session Richee will address the issue of unmet expectations, focusing on practical ways to keep them from becoming a source of offense toward God and an obstacle to gospel.

David Rickman

Session 3: The Obstacle of Relating to Knowledge Pridefully

As we seek to grow in our understanding in the Scriptures and “accurately handle the word of truth” (2 Ti 2:15), it is imperative that we rightly steward and humbly relate to the knowledge with which we are entrusted. Though growing in knowledge and understanding is essential to faith, a wrong pursuit and stewardship of it can actually become a stumbling block to reliance upon God. Trusting in God through the word of truth—the gospel—requires a proper pursuit of knowledge that conforms itself faithfully to both message and way of life found within. In this session David will explore the question of how to steward knowledge in ways that advance the gospel rather than hinder it.

Jeremy Johnson

Session 4: The Obstacle of “Man’s Interests”

In Mt 16:23, Jesus confronts Peter with what he calls 'man’s interests': “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s” (NASB). Human interests in this age, dominated as they are by self-preservation and a desire for worldly success, are completely contrary to the interests of God as embodied in the gospel—so much so, in fact, that in God’s eyes “man’s interests” are in the same category as “Satan’s interests.” Critical to the gospel’s advance, therefore, is spiritual warfare understood first and foremost in terms of dying to self: “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me” (Mt 16:24, NASB). In this session Jeremy will discuss the core nature of spiritual warfare and how to fight with “the word of truth and weapons of righteousness” (2 Co 6:7), so as to keep our lives and ministry from becoming a stumbling block to the gospel.

Putting No Obstacles Before The Gospel

In 2 Co 6:3-10, Paul tells the believers in Corinth:

We put no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, but as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: by great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the Holy Spirit, genuine love; by truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; through honor and dishonor, through slander and praise. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as punished, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing everything.

 

In 1 Co 9:12, he makes the same point specifically in reference to his choice not exercise the right he had to financial support:

…Nevertheless, we have not made use of this right [to receive support], but we endure anything rather than put an obstacle in the way of the gospel of Christ.

 

As passages like these indicate, a commitment to put no obstacles in the way of the gospel was a central feature to Paul’s “way of life,” which he taught “everywhere, in every church” (1 Co 4:16-17). What does it mean for something to function as a “hindrance” or “obstacle” to the gospel? What are some of the main “hindrances to the gospel” identified in the New Testament, and why are they identified as such? In Paul’s mind, the pattern of life he taught and modeled was of such great priority, that he could simply encourage churches to look for those who live “according to the pattern/example that you have in us” (Php 3:17). What is this “pattern” to which our conduct is expected to conform, and what does it look like, in practical terms, to live according it? What message does such a pattern/way of life assume?

These are the types of questions we will be examining at this year’s conference. We look forward to our time with those of you who will be in attendance, and pray that the Lord would produce lasting fruit through our time together, to His glory. Amen.
